Zero Carbon Futures appointed to deliver Milton Keynes Go Ultra Low City programme
The contract, which follows a tender exercise, was issued after the town was named as one of the first Go Ultra Low cities in January and awarded £9m – part of a total £40m government funding that was shared out to promote electric vehicle take-up.
Zero Carbon Futures has been tasked with overseeing the project’s key strands including the EV Experience Centre, EV charge point infrastructure and innovation as well as work on the Highways to support the programme.
The company has already been involved in a number of high-profile electric vehicle projects such as the Rapid Charge Network, Plugged in Places and My Electric Avenue and has overseen the development of charge point networks across the UK including at motorway service stations.
Brian Matthews, head of transport innovation at Milton Keynes Council, said: “We had a number of exceptionally strong tender submissions for the project management contract however Zero Carbon Futures’ expertise and knowledge of the industry really stood out. The company will be a critical friend for the project throughout its five years.”
