A new partnership called EV Works has been created between electric vehicle charging firm Elm EV and EV consultancy Zero Carbon Futures to encourage the uptake of plug-in vehicles in the UK.
Quoted as being the first partnership of its kind, EV Works will support businesses and organisations in a large-scale roll-out of EV uptake, and the charging infrastructure that goes with it.
Support will include a package that covers vehicles, policy and charging, as well as project management, funding applications, marketing, and maintenance. The idea being that EV Works will take away the unknown elements of EVs and EV charging for organisations.
Elm EV has installed more than 2,000 EV charging points since its foundation in 2013, working with homes, businesses and organisations such as the NHS from its base in the North East. Zero Carbon Futures was established in 2011 as a not-for-profit and independent consultancy, specialising in low carbon vehicle technologies.
Elm EV’s Commercial Director, Dan Martin said: “At Elm EV, we strive to promote the benefits of using electric vehicles within large fleets, helping to create a more sustainable environment to live in. We also endorse the financial benefits of using EV’s.
“We are an independent company, specialising in supplying, installing and maintaining electric vehicle charging infrastructures. Partnering with Zero Carbon Futures enables us to provide organisations with a ‘full package’ of support on electric vehicles.”
Colin Herron, Managing Director, Zero Carbon Futures said: “There are so many natural synergies between our two companies: we both have vast knowledge and connections in the industry as well as practical experience of project managing and delivering electric vehicle projects. We are also completely independent so we can offer impartial advice and recommendations to organisations and companies at the beginning of their EV journey.”
