Parking

Electric Vehicle Charging Spaces

Background

In 2019 a successful funding bid to Innovate UK, a government pot investing in science and research, enabled Devon County Council and a consortium of private sector partners to install and operate a number of on-street electric vehicle charge points. Together with Devon County Council the Rapid Charging Exeter consortium consists of Wenea (a leading mobile energy operator), Co Cars, ZPN Energy (a British provider specialising in Energy Technology), Gamma Solutions (specialising in the development, construction and operation of green energy assets) and Regen (a not-for-profit centre of energy expertise and market insight).

Implemented over a number of phases the project will install state-of-the-art electric vehicle chargers in local neighbourhoods. Thus, bringing rapid, reliable charging to residents especially those who don’t have off-street parking.

Additionally, the partnership with Co Cars car club means that in many locations there’ll be an electric car available to hire by the hour or day, providing affordable access to electric vehicles for everyone.
