UK Research & Innovation

“This is a hugely exciting project and will place Exeter at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution in the UK. This state-of-the-art technology will deliver rapid on-street charging solutions which will enable access for neighbourhoods across the city. A particularly exciting element of this scheme is the co-location of car club electric vehicles which extends the reach beyond EV owners, opening EV use to a whole new audience.” ​
