APCOA is proud to have been selected by Hillingdon Council to deliver a high quality, accessible and convenient electric vehicle charging network across the borough by 2030.
As part of increasing, improving and managing EV infrastructure, the programme will include the introduction of new public charging points at off-street council property to help meet demand as more drivers switch to electric vehicles. Delivery of the council’s EV strategy will also contribute to environmental targets by reducing emissions.
Cllr Jonathan Bianco, Hillingdon Council's Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Property, Highways and Transport, has 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."
Increasing EV charging provision will also directly support local residents to move to more sustainable transport in response to the recent expansion of the London ULEZ boundary which now includes Hillingdon.
Kim Challis, regional managing director of APCOA UK & Ireland and ESG director of APCOA Group, said: “We are excited to support Hillingdon Council to develop their electric vehicle charging network. Powering more of the cars we drive with clean energy is essential to address both CO2 emissions and air pollution. Working with public sector clients to help develop and implement their EV charging infrastructure is an important contributor to environmental goals and a key driver for our business.”
