About Connected Kerb
Connected Kerb aims to deliver future-proof, cost-effective and sustainable EV charging solutions for the public sector, developers, fleets, workplaces and car parks to help accelerate the transition to EVs for all. Its unique solution combines power and data at the kerb to deliver user-friendly and reliable charging and provide the foundation for connected cities and communities.
The charging network plans to install 190,000 public on-street EV chargers, worth up to £1.9bn, by 2030. The unprecedented investment aims to revolutionise access to EV charging for millions of drivers without off-street parking, and to support mass-market charging for workplaces and fleets.
With no membership or connection fees, the average price per kWh of Connected Kerb devices ranges between £0.23 and £0.25. Connected Kerb agrees a small fee on a case-by-case basis with its clients (including local authorities, workplaces and more) on top of the per kWh power price that the network is charged by the power provider.
