Dundee City Council ‘Go Ultra Low’ project boosted by Connected Energy rapid charge hub

Dundee City Council’s ‘Go Ultra Low’ Cities project

Dundee City Council’s ‘Go Ultra Low’ Cities project has been boosted by a rapid charge hub from Connected Energy.

Appointed by Evolt, Connected Energy will supply one of its E-Storage 60/90 energy storage systems to complement its EV charging hub on Princes Street, Dundee.

Due to be constructed in the spring of this year, it will be the flagship site of Dundee City Council’s Go Ultra Low Cities project. It will incorporate six rapid chargers and solar canopies alongside the 60kW, 90kWh E-STOR system.

The E-Stor system will be used to improve the business case and reinforce the environmental credentials of the project by managing the peak load, maximising the use of the solar energy to charge electric vehicles and taking advantage of differences in electricity cost throughout the day.

Evolt has secured the overall contract and will be managing installation.

Connected Energy’s chief executive Matthew Lumsden said, “This is a landmark project in terms of the development of EV charging hubs in the UK so we are very pleased to be contributing to the development of the system and the supporting operational and business case.”

Dundee City Council's city development committee convener Lynne Short said: "This is an important project for the city and it will take us to the next level when it comes to our charging infrastructure.

“Within the 26 square miles of perfection that is Dundee we will have a charging network second to none and working with skilled and efficient suppliers is a key part of that."
