VolkerSmart Technologies and Ubitricity, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell, have continued collaboration to deliver over 1,000 lamp column charging points across London Boroughs.

The contract follows the successful installation of 36 EV bollard chargers in West Berkshire and 20 charge points in Oxfordshire, on behalf of ubitricity.

Adapting existing lamp columns and bollards to EV charging points is a cost-effective solution for many London Boroughs. Benefits of the in-column charge points include readily available electrical infrastructure, keeping footpaths clear from additional street furniture and are accessibility to all EV drivers. The columns are also already positioned in areas with long dwell times or overnight charging.

Ubitricity’s ‘Smart Charging’ technology allows users at any time of day to skip their peak window (4-7pm), saving money on their charging session.

Having been involved in the conversion of lamp columns and bollards to EV charging points since 2018, VolkerSmart Technologies has a wealth of knowledge and experience to bring to the project.
