Evolt wins place on Scottish framework to supply EV chargepoints


Electric vehicle chargepoint supplier Evolt has been selected by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) as one of the companies to provide EV charging solutions on a new Scotland-wide framework agreement.

The new framework includes the right to tender, be selected, or quote for the installation of rapid, commercial and domestic charging units on the mainland and in the Highlands and Islands.

The announcement follows a full tender and is effective immediately to an initial expiry date of December 2018.

In the past five years, Evolt has supplied more than 1,100 charging points to 24 local councils and many private businesses in Scotland.

Justin Meyer, general manager at Evolt, said its commercial charge points’ reliability was a key factor in being selected for the new framework.

He added: “Our equipment is installed in both urban and rural environments, including on remote islands such as the Shetlands, and has helped to drive forward Scotland’s sustainability agenda over the past five years.

“As a part of the new framework agreement we remain in a strong position to encourage and facilitate the ever-increasing take up of EVs in Scotland."

Included in the 1,100 Evolt charge points installed in Scotland are 85 of the top-of-the-range Evolt Rapid chargers. Each unit can efficiently charge two EVs to 80% of their battery life within 30 minutes through a 50Kw DC and 43Kw AC outlet.
