Ultra fast electric vehicle charge points added at NETPark
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.

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
