Sutherland Avenue, in Westminster, has become the first residential street in the UK to successfully convert 24 lampposts into electric vehicle (EV) charge points.
The project – a collaboration between Siemens, ubitricity, and Westminster City Council – has utilised the existing city infrastructure along the half-mile street to create a simple, fast network.
Residents along Sutherland Avenue do not have the luxury of off-road parking, and can now charge their EVs at various locations along the street. Two adjoining roads are also due to be upgraded in the coming weeks.
“Lamppost charging gives people without driveways a very convenient, low cost, renewable, energy-friendly way to charge their EVs.
“Our technology is designed to keep installation and maintenance costs low, which translates to long-term low costs for EV drivers and councils,” said Daniel Bentham, managing director of ubitricity UK.
