Chargemaster has won a £2 million contract to install and operate around 230 electric vehicle (EV) charging points across Nottingham, Nottinghamshire and Derby.

The EV infrastructure provider will put the equipment into place over the next three years as part of the region’s Go Ultra Low City status, with at least 11 sites set to be installed within the next six months.

The firm will integrate the new network with its existing POLAR user base and offer discount rates to households and businesses within the region.

David Martell, Chief Executive of Chargemaster, said: “The council has a clear vision for Nottingham as a Go Ultra Low City and we are excited to be helping them to achieve it.

“The provision of public charging points for electric vehicles is critical for encouraging drivers to make the switch and ultimately to reduce urban emissions in our towns and cities.”

At the end of 2016, Chargemaster was awarded a £2.3 million contract to provide additional charging infrastructure in Milton Keynes.
