Geospatial analysis will identify EV uptake hotspots and determine the most appropriate charging solutions for properties across the county
Coleshill, UK, 14th January 2021
Energeo Ltd are collaborating with Oxfordshire County Council on a project determining residential property suitability for a range of innovative Electric Vehicle(EV) charging solutions. The geospatially focused project will also see Energeo deliver intelligence on predicted hot spots for high EV uptake across the County, and develop and deploy a Software-as-a-Service based tool to support desk-based survey of sites proposed for EV chargepoint deployment.
“It’s fantastic to be working with Oxfordshire County Council on this forward-thinking project, which will identify future charging requirements and support the equitable transition to EV for all residents across the County” commented Energeo CEO, Ian Dee. “We’re also extremely pleased to be continuing our excellent working relationship with the Authority, which includes the on going provision of geospatially derived, energy related insights into the ‘Local Energy Oxfordshire’ project to support Smart Grid trials and widescale planning for Net Zero”.
Paul Gambrell, the EV Integration Team Leader at Oxfordshire County Council said, “We have found working with Energeo on this project very productive. Their knowledge and skills has made the delivery of our ideas into a working model a pleasurable experience and we look forward to continuing to work with them on the survey tool.”
The EV focused project will see Energeo assess over 150,000 properties across Oxfordshire’s largest urban conurbations for their suitability for five different types of EV charging solutions, including various innovative on-street technologies. The geospatially derived outputs will be delivered via a SaaS based platform to aid decision makers in Oxfordshire’s highways teams with understanding whether any proposed location is suitable for on-street EV charging, and which EV charging technology is most appropriate for any given site.
