D2N2 is a regional public EV charging network covering Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Operated by Charge Your Car on behalf of the local authorities’ Go Ultra Low Cities project, D2N2 users access BP Chargemaster Polar units, with discounted rates available for residents in the region.
Points are open-access for non-residents, with Polar / Charge Your Car membership allowing access, and either the Polar Instant app or contactless bank card readers are also available – depending on the point.
Membership cost (residents): £20 per annum for RFID card
Cost per charge: D2N2 residents – 20p/kWh (minimum of £1 charged) for both fast and rapid units
Contactless bank card on rapid charge points (only) – 30p/kWh
Polar Plus members retain 12p/kWh rate
To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from a D2N2 charge point, head to Zap-Map’s Public Charging Calculator. This allows you to select any new or used plug-in vehicle, and tailor elements – such as electricity cost and charge required – for personalised results.
How to use the the D2N2 Network
Access to the D2N2 network is made via either an RFID card, smartphone app, or contactless credit / debit card. Payment is then taken from a credit or debit card linked to the customer’s account after the charging session is complete.
Finding D2N2 points on Zap-Map
All D2N2 points can be found on Zap-Map by using the network filter. This can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and displays only those points operated by D2N2.
Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
Set up by Nottingham City Council, Derby City Council, Nottinghamshire County Council and Derbyshire County Council, D2N2 is backed by Go Ultra Low funding, and aims to assist local residents in the transition to EV ownership by providing the region with a comprehensive network of public EV charge points.
