North East Ambulance Service invests in smart chargers
The vehicles replace five conventionally-powered models, and will be supported by a network of nine charging points across the region, the first UK installations by Dutch company ICU.
Installed by Elm Electric Vehicle Charging Solutions, the ICU EVe charging points are said to be the only units available in the UK which offer technology for smart charging – which means they can intelligently manage energy usage at times of peak demand to avoid overloading the grid.
Alex Earl, ICU UK country manager said, “Having produced over 15,000 charge points for the mainland European market, ICU is very excited to have made a start now in the UK. Our success has been built on producing high quality, reliable, intelligent charge points so it is crucial for us that we work with partners in the UK who share our values.
“Elm EV is certainly one such partner with already great experience in the UK EV market. We are very happy to be working with them and look forward to sharing continued success well into the future.”
