UK Power Networks (UKPN) has launched a new programme designed to accelerate the uptake of low-carbon transport such as electric vehicles (EVs).

The Low Carbon Technology Customer Group will see the network operator initially approach the owners and managers of destination venues, property landlords and business workplaces across its network area who are planning to install low-carbon technologies.

“We want to help anyone who might be thinking about decarbonising their existing property asset but doesn’t know who to speak to,” said Adam Lakey, stakeholder engagement manager at UKPN.

“We’re looking for input from organisations like ambulance trusts or fire brigades to campsites or shopping destinations; anyone who knows that at some point over the next five-10 years they want to install low-carbon technology like EV chargers or solar panels but doesn’t yet know how to go about it.”

In approaching these organisations, UKPN hopes to identify common challenges across groups and sectors, in particular as up until now businesses haven’t often had to work with their local energy distributor. Once common challenges are identified, it can work to design practical solutions.
