Durham’s North East Technology Park (NETPark), in Sedgefield, County Durham has launched two new dual fast chargers for staff and visitors of the park to charge their electric vehicles (EVs).
Working with Elmtronics, an independent supplier and installer of EV charging equipment, the Eve 7kW fast chargepoints will allow tenants and visitors to charge their fully electric and plug in hybrid vehicles whilst using on-site amenities.
The EV chargepoints, connected to the Hubsta network, allow for four electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids to charge at any one time and can be accessed via the Hubsta mobile app or fob.
Earlier this year in February 2019, Durham County Council declared a Climate Change Emergency along with ambitious targets to significantly reduce its own carbon emissions by 60 per cent by 2030. Installing the EV fast chargers is a step towards the county’s carbon emissions goal.
The launch of the new charging points was announced at an engagement event at NETPark on 12 June 2019 where Tesla showcased a range of vehicles, allowing locals to test drive some of the most exciting EVs on the market and also test out the new charging facilities.
