Mer has signed a deal to install electric vehicle (EV) charge points across more than 100 of Knight Frank Investment Management’s (KFIM) client owned sites in the UK.

The new charge points will be a mixture of rapid and ultra-rapid, available for public use, and will have the capacity to charge 450 electric vehicles across the network due to multiple-connectors.

You can pay for Mer charge point charging sessions from within the Zapmap app using Zap-Pay, giving you access to your live charging information, and VAT receipts, all in one place.

“Following an in-depth tender process, it is a privilege to become the exclusive EV charging partner for a leading real estate investment manager,” said Karl Anders, Managing Director at Mer UK.

“KFIM’s decision to partner with Mer highlights its proactive commitment to providing innovative property solutions as we move into the new electric era.”

Mer will begin installation this year at 14 of KFIM client sites, which will each have six charging bays offering ultra rapid charging.

“After recognising that reliable and future-fit EV charging infrastructure is becoming an increasingly in-demand asset of commercial properties, it was important that we partnered with an experienced charge point operator who understands the complex needs of our portfolio of sites,” said Matt Simmonds at KFIM.

“Mer’s charge points will help us provide an essential service to our tenants and visitors, and we are looking forward to working with Mer in the roll out of charging infrastructure in the coming months.”

Mer is a Zapmap Live data partner, all of its charge points within the Zapmap app or web map contain live availability and status information, helping you to plan the most convenient routes and charging stops.
