Milton Keynes to receive 250 charge points

The project is funded by the largest OZEV grant to date of over £1 million.

We are working with Milton Keynes Council and Ringway to install charging points in the older areas of the town after they secured a £1.1 million grant from the Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles (OZEV).

 


Why is this a big deal?

The project is funded by the largest OZEV grant to date of over £1 million.

The scheme will see the first use of artificial intelligence and data science to profile likely EV and charge point adoption that will usher in thousands of  charge points

The project is also the first use of the Connected Kerb data network structure to deploy other transport services such as parking management, air quality management and deeper integration with IoT devices.


CEO Dr Chris Pateman-Jones said:


"I am delighted that Milton Keynes Council, who are a recognised pioneer in the EV sector, selected Connected Kerb for this critical EV infrastructure project which aims to boost EV uptake in Milton Keynes by improving access to charge points for residents without off-street parking. Making charging more affordable, sustainable and accessible to all is an essential step if the city and the wider UK is to reach net zero."
