Ealing Council has expanded its partnership with electric vehicle (EV) charpoint operator Believ to support the creation of accessible on-street charging solutions for residents.
Believ will distribute 83 EV chargepoints to 44 sites across the borough, adding another 166 sockets for residents to charge their vehicles.
Cabinet member for climate action and deputy leader of Ealing Council, Deirdre Costigan, said: “With a focus on installing where residents are more than a 10-minute walk from a chargepoint, Ealing Council has already doubled the number of charging points in the borough in a year, and I am confident that our joint efforts can help us reach our goal of 2,000 EV chargepoints by 2026, lowering emissions and reducing air pollution for our residents.
“It’s crucial that our seven towns and their suburban areas benefit equally as EV charging infrastructure will boost local businesses, attracting more visitors to the borough to experience everything Ealing has to offer.”
The installation coincides with the expansion of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone, which extends to Ealing.
Achievements and innovations in EV charging will be celebrated at the third annual CiTTi Awards, which will be held on 26 November 2024 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London. Nominations officially open in March 2024. Visit www.cittiawards.co.uk to learn more about this unmissable event for the UK’s transportation sector.
