04 Jan 2023 Frank Barrett on 2023
Frank Barrett, CEO of WN VTech, is one of a selection of top business leaders across the northwest that has been asked to share his predictions for what to expect in the coming year. Here’s what he had to say:
“There are many reasons to be optimistic about 2023 in the sustainable transport space. As more and more people begin to look at electric vehicles, we are already seeing wide development and a greater understanding of the sector.
“We can expect greater clarity around the infrastructure requirements for electrification, as well as new methods of funding.
“A focus on the whole package, not just the vehicle, will provide better understanding of the total cost of ownership for the general population. This will take things forward at a greater pace in 2023.
“Making electric vehicles more accessible will, ultimately, help set the economy on a course for green, sustainable growth, and importantly will help combat rising fuel prices.”
