Enabling connectivity Data is at the heart of everything we do

Everything we do is data connected

We believe that the transition to an electric transport ecosystem is well underway, however this ecosystem will differ profoundly from the one we know today. Different vehicles, different technologies, different means of using power to drive multi-modal, sustainable and emission-free transport. We also know that these new transport paradigms will need more than energy to drive them; data will enable the future of transport and that’s why everything we do is data connected.

We’re a little different from the rest…

What differentiates us from traditional charge point vendors is that our technology is a two-part solution. Our smart cities system is comprised of a Power & Data Pack that is sunk beneath the pavement and housed in a Node Box, and the visible, above-ground charge point socket. The subterranean componentry provides access to both power and data, which enables an array of different hardware and software products.

Today, this means that we can support EV charge point technologies, environmental and air quality management sensors, parking management sensors and varied payment platforms. Tomorrow, these same smart city nodes will power the data needed to drive advanced mobility and transportation technologies.

Our focus

Our technology proposition is aimed at a very specific part of the electric vehicle charge point market; on-street residential charging. Our focus is on providing convenient charge point infrastructure for residents who do not have access to off-street parking and so are unable to install their own dedicated charge point. We believe that on-street residential is crucial to promoting and accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles at the rate required.

The second part of our solution is the above-ground charge point, which we have sympathetically designed to fit discretely into existing street scenes. We can enable existing street furniture to ensure visual impact is minimised.

Connectivity is key

From start to finish, we use data to ensure the success of our solutions:

  • Data science, artificial intelligence and data analytics are utilised to identify prospective charge point locations that are best-aligned to support the growth of EV use and ownership.
  • Our charge points are enabled with broadband and 5G connectivity, so from the day the charge point goes live, it’s connected to support a host of hardware and software applications, IoT sensors and data-driven transport and mobility applications.
  • Our own advanced software platforms manage our smart node networks, optimising energy usage, ensuring reliability and accessibility, and enabling different business use cases. Our consumer applications for smart phones provide a flexible, compelling and easy-to-use set of features to support your own customers.

Residential charging point

Residential charging point

Over 40% of UK residents do not have a driveway or the ability to install a home charger. Providing fossil fuel forecourt will not meet this demand either. The only viable option is a low power, low cost, low impact residential solution which can be rolled out nationally.

Residential charging point

Nearly half of all vehicle owners – 43% – do not have a driveway, which is why,we at Connected Kerb believe the future of electric vehicle charging will be focused on urban residential streets. Current fossil fuel forecourts will not be able to cope with expected demand and, as demand for charging increases, the UK power network will not be able to sustain a rapid charging solution for all.

The only viable option is a low power, low cost, low impact residential solution which can be rolled out nationally.

The UK power network cannot currently cope with a mass rollout of rapid chargers. Whilst rapid chargers have their place, the average time to charge is 30 minutes and the existing UK infrastructure for powering vehicles simply does not have the forecourt space to cope with multiple vehicles charging at any one time. This applies going forward too, based on the expected speeds of rapid charging over the next 20 years.

The current providers of on-street charging solutions have experienced many roadblocks to their solutions, not least cost.

The only viable solution is a rollout of a residential on street charging network.

Our solution also enables the asset owner to better manage the use of charge points, incentivising use by the public (through reduced fees or parking rates) and encouraging responsible charging (through notifications and intelligent pricing) to maximise the number of users.

Our software platform is fully Open Charge Point Protocol(OCCP) compliant and simple for drivers to use, even as first time users (where QR codes and Near Field Communication(NFC) technology is able to quickly direct the user to the Connected Kerb Mobile App.).
