Hillingdon Council and parking management company APCOA have announced plans to deliver hundreds of new EV charging points throughout the London borough by 2030.
APCOA, a CiTTi Awards 2023 finalist, was selected by Hillingdon Council to help meet demand as more drivers switch to electric vehicles (EVs).
Regional managing director of APCOA UK & Ireland and ESG director of APCOA Group, Kim Challis, said: “We are excited to support Hillingdon Council to develop their eEV charging network.
“Powering more of the cars we drive with clean energy is essential to address both CO2 emissions and air pollution.”
Set to be completed by 2030, the additional EV chargepoints will contribute to the council’s Net Zero environmental targets by reducing emissions.

Hillingdon Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for property, highways and transport, Jonathan Bianco, said: “We are committed to creating a green and sustainable borough and will continue to consider effective and efficient climate change measures, that are within our means to adopt and finance, to deliver environmentally friendly changes for our residents.
“This strategy supports air quality improvements and will help drive the transition to zero carbon transportation.”
The increase in EV chargepoints will also support local residents’ move to more sustainable transport in accordance with the recent expansion of London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone, which now includes Hillingdon.
Innovations and achievements in electric vehicles and charging infrastructure will be celebrated at the second annual CiTTi Awards on 21 November 2023 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
