EV Solutions - Peel Energy
ChargePoint Services began working with Peel Energy in early 2018 with the installation of EV charging facilities at their creative & digital hub – MediaCityUK, home to the BBC, ITV, Kellogg’s, Ericsson and the University of Salford, as well as over 250 smaller businesses.
Around 7,500 people live and work within MediaCityUK, and Peel Energy wanted to provide support for the transition to cleaner transportation in and around the area. The initial phase was to install ten GeniePoint Network connected chargers for EV drivers visiting or based at the destination.
Simon Wilson, Energy Development Manager for Peel Land and Property said: “Peel Energy is committed to cutting carbon emissions and since transport is one of the main emitters of carbon, we believe that electric vehicles are key to meeting the national target of reducing emissions by at least 3% a year to meet the 2050 goal of an 80% reduction of 1990 carbon emissions. We hope this infrastructure will help support the uptake of electric vehicles by making it easy and convenient for people to make the switch.”
