If Local Authorities have a social responsibility in the electric revolution, it’s to ensure that EV charging is accessible to as many residents and businesses as possible.
To fulfil this role, an authority needs to understand four key questions:
- What are the appropriate accessibility criteria for EV charging?
- What is my current accessibility?
- How far off the ideal is my authority now?
- What is the most efficient way to bridge the gap?
At the core of our solution to these questions is our off-street parking analysis. We have analysed all the 27 million households in Great Britain to determine whether they have off-street parking. According to our analysis, 8 million households need on-street access but only 10% currently have access to charging within a 5-minute walk. Authorities will, therefore, need on-street parking provisions – particularly when corporate fleets move to electric vehicles.
We’ve have developed a range of products for Local Authorities to help you create an EV charging policy that social responsibility and net-zero objectives with your available budget fairly and transparently, so the stakeholders ranging from residents to elected members can understand and engage in the evolving policy.
A report that identifies which households within your boundaries will be reliant on public charging and what access they currently have to public charging.
A report that defines the most efficient network of chargers that would fulfil different accessibility policies as EVs become ubiquitous.
An online tool that enables you to create multiple scenarios that will move you from today to tomorrow and engage your different stakeholder groups in the process.
Our EV Solutions provide you with…
- A robust, visual and, data-driven view of today and tomorrow that can be used to inform stakeholders
- A simple to use but sophisticated way to support grant applications and funding requests
- A methodology that will create and refine a robust policy as EV adoption develops
