Natasha Robinson & Vicky Edmonds
The top spot goes to Vicky and Natasha, who jointly head up OLEV, the cross departmental unit that holds the purse for low-emission transport funding. OLEV is responsible for the grants for electric vehicles and infrastructure and is therefore in a significant position of power when it comes to shaping the industry. Vicky has worked within Government in various environmental policy roles, tackling issues related to freight sector emissions, air quality and aviation noise emissions. She also led the Department for Transport’s environmental strategy team. Natasha has also spent many years at the Department for Transport, working in various roles before jointly heading up OLEV with Vicky.
