We are working with Ubitricity and Otto Car to increase the electric charging infrastructure for those who need it most.
The Camden Clean Air Initiative is working to install more electric vehicle (EV) charging points around public housing estates to provide charging infrastructure to residents without private driveways and help reduce Camden’s carbon footprint.
Research conducted by Ubitricity, Otto Car, and Camden Clean Air found that 84% of drivers would prefer to drive an EV, however, two-thirds of these residents do not have access to a driveway, meaning they must rely on on-street charging. Considering that taxi and PCO (private hire)drivers are driving on average 100 miles a day, we knew that if we could provide the infrastructure to these drivers they would be able to purchase EVs, and we could significantly reduce vehicle emissions within the Borough.
We have, therefore, created a survey for drivers where we collect their EV preferences and home postcodes. We share this information with the Council so that each time they install new charge points, they may consider prioritising these locations and in doing so provide the infrastructure to those who need it the most.
Now is the time to electrify Camden, improve our air quality, and create a safer and cleaner space for our community! If you would like to support the electrification of Camden, then please get in touch.
