Following an agreement signed with Tower Hamlets just before the end of 2017, Bluepoint London has now secured partnerships with 20 London boroughs to radically transform capital’s EV infrastructure.
By installing charge points under the Source London scheme, the company says it will help deliver cleaner air across the capital.
The company has so far spent £25 million of the £100m budget it has allocated to transform London’s EV infrastructure. There are currently close to 1,000 charge points stored in a warehouse in Ealing, ready to be deployed.
In 2017, Source London number of monthly charges more than doubled over the course of year to reach just under 50,000 cycles.
This surge in usage, it says, shows that electric vehicle users increasingly need a far more comprehensive network of charge points.
Christophe Arnaud, managing director, said: “Source London continues to be London’s leading charging network and we are extremely pleased to be working with 20 boroughs across London.
“Nevertheless we are still far behind other capitals and witness daily the appetite of Londoners for electric vehicles. Providing them with the right infrastructure is essential and only an immediate collaborative effort from all of London’s local authorities will enable us to find the best possible locations for the 1,000 points we have waiting in storage.”
