Coleshill, UK, 18th October 2018

A consortium featuring Energeo, Plymouth City Council, Duku, and Urban Electric, led by V2G EVSE, has been awarded funding by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) as part of Innovate UK’s “Electric Vehicle Charging for Public Spaces” call. The consortium’s project, Inconspicuous Smart On Street Charging (ISOSEC), will assess the feasibility of combining Urban Electric’s retractable charging posts with V2G EVSE’s standards-compliant V2X-ready smart charging station controller.

“It’s fantastic news that our team’s innovative approach to on-street Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure has been recognised by OLEV as having the potential to make a real difference to how people - especially in areas with a dearth of private or off-street parking - charge their EV’s now and in the future” commented Ian Dee, Energeo CEO. “For Energeo, this is an important next-step in the development of our geospatially driven Electric Vehicle infrastructure services, and will allow us to build on the successful work undertaken with Bournemouth Borough Council recently which was named as one of the 5 key projects in the UK Space sector right now”.

For ISOSEC, Energeo will utilise geospatial big data and machine learning to automatically identify and measure assets influencing on-street charge point installation in order to determine optimal install locations that consider; utilisation, access and safety, parking constraints or regulations, and potential to deliver grid services to District Network Operators.
