Connected Kerb to install 10,000 EV chargers in Surrey

30 March 2023 #Other

Connected Kerb has announced plans to roll out 10,000 public EV chargers across Surrey by 2030.

The company, in partnership with Surrey County Council, is expected to deliver more than 5,000 fast charging points by 2027, including more than 500 rapid charging points across the county.

It represents the UK’s largest rollout of public EV charging infrastructure by a local authority and will deliver charging points to more than 1,500 locations on streets and in public car parks.

The £60 million rollout in Surrey will consist of Connected Kerb’s entire product range, including 7kW and 22kW Gecko chargers, Chameleon chargers for on-street and car parks, the wall-mounted Limpet and the Scarab throughout housing developments.

Connected Kerb’s Chameleon charger has been designed specifically to cater to those with accessibility needs.

In addition to the EV charging points, the contract will include Connected Kerb’s social value projects.

These will cover a range of initiatives including working with local educational centres to provide industry support to pupils interested in learning about EV chargepoints, providing employability support to vulnerable young people, as well as supporting a number of charities within the county.

Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said: “If local authorities are the door to a clean transport future, then charging networks like Connected Kerb are the key, providing the tools and expertise needed to unlock the transition at the pace and scale required.

“Although the government’s estimate of 300,000 chargers by 2030 may feel ambitious, it’s eminently possible – and necessary – to achieve. This deal proves it.”
