Lochaber Electric Vehicle Roadshow
The Nevis Centre, Fort William, Saturday 17th August, 10 am to 4 pm.
We are bringing a great range of electric cars to the Nevis Centre in Fort William for you to try out! Come along for a test drive to see the ever expanding range of electric cars and how they would work for you!
We will also have e-bikes to try out, these are a great alternative to the car for many commuter journeys and great fun too! By giving you a boost when cycling at low speeds an e-bike can make stop-start journeys far easier or turn a hilly commute into a fast one! Thanks to Off-Beat Bikes and Nevis Cycles for coming along!
Home Energy Scotland advisors will also be on hand to chat through any home energy questions you have, from insulation to windows, and LED light bulbs to heat pumps, someone will have the answers you need!
Each time slot is an hour, and there will be 2-3 people booked in to test drive the vehicle during this time. You will get a test drive and a chance to chat with the advisors and stalls about the practicalities of living with an electric car as well as lots of other environmental topics! Please choose the car you are most interested in, there is plenty of information available online, or give us an email to see which would be most suitable.
If you want to test drive an electric car please remember to bring your driving licence and licence check code (which replaces the paper counterpart). The check code can be accessed here: www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence
If you can’t get the licence code we can generate one on the day, but you will need your licence and National Insurance number.
Thanks to Home Energy Scotland for helping to organise the event and to the car dealers who have lent the vehicles!
The Bike Kitchen will also be at the roadshow offering free bike health checks and quick repairs, so bring your bike along and leave it with the Bike Kitchen while you try out an E Bike.
See you on Saturday 17th!

Friday 16th August, 1 pm to 4 pm.
Come along to see what the future holds for your business!
Before the public event we will be speaking to local businesses about the benefits of EV’s, e-bikes and other energy efficiency improvements that can help local businesses.
Join us at 1 pm for sandwiches, followed by some quick presentations from Energy Savings Trust, Resource Efficient Scotland and others including our hosts, HWenergy, who will talk about biomass heating and show off their own wood-chip boiler! This will be followed by cake and a networking opportunity along with important information about funding assistance available.
We will have electric cars for test drives* and electric bikes for test rides. Trying out electric transport is a great way to see the difference and see how it would fit in with your business.
