Potential for electric vehicle charging points near you?

Postby dsorsby » Thu Jan 06, 2011 12:40 pm

Dear all,

Whilst doing a bit of digging about car shares, I came across an initiative called Plugged in Places' by a company called CO2Sense (part of Yorkshire Forward). They are currently looking at ways of getting more electric vehicle charging points up and running across the UK, including in our area.

Plugged in Places are looking for potential sites, where the owners of the sites are willing to provide between 50% and 70% of the funding. They already have around 80 site owners across the region who confirmed they were prepared to pay 50% of the cost and looking down the list the nearest locations to us are:

- Sheffield University
- Sheffield International Venues
- Sheffield Hallam University

CO2 Sense are also exploring whether the public bodies that own key sites like Sheffield train station would be prepared to part-fund the installation of electric vehicle charging posts.

Please could you let me know if you are aware of any suitable sites for charging points, particularly if the owners might provide between 50% to 70% of the funding (which will roughly equate to between £7,000 and £10,000). I will forward the info on to CO2 Sense.

I would love to have an electic charging point in hunters bar, if anyone has any good contacts or ideas on how we might do this, pl let me know!

Best wishes
