RingGo works with Go Ultra Low to promote EV uptake
Cashless parking provider RingGo has partnered with the Go Ultra Low campaign to help drive adoption of electric vehicles.
RingGo will support the Go Ultra Low joint industry and government campaign to promote EV take-up by including information on switching to electric on its website and app.
RingGo will also work with Go Ultra Low to showcase the impact which the parking industry can have on helping to drive uptake of EVs. The firm’s Emissions Based Parking product – said to be an industry first and already in use in the Square Mile – enables councils and parking management companies to implement emissions-based parking tariffs to influence choice, while drivers can locate EV charging stations and ULEZ information.
“We have already seen through our emissions-based parking solution that the adoption of electric vehicles is on the rise, but it still feels like we have a long way to go,” said Peter O’Driscoll, UK managing director, RingGo. “Making a positive impact on the environment through our work is something we, at RingGo, are passionate about so it is great to partner with a campaign like Go Ultra Low, who are aiming to achieve the same goal. Bringing our expertise together will help us encourage EV adoption and make cities across the country healthier and more liveable for generations to come.”
Commenting on the new partnership, Poppy Welch, head of Go Ultra Low, added: “Registrations for battery electric vehicles have hit a record high, with a 93.1% increase in year-to-date registrations compared with 2018. Currently there are 223,000 electric cars registered in the UK compared to only 3,500 in 2013 – and we are just getting started. This partnership with RingGo will help us to show drivers across the country how easy it is to make an EV work in their lives. RingGo has been championing EV adoption through its emissions based parking solution and now with its EV charging point locating capabilities, it’s easier to make the switch than ever. Working together we can continue to make monumental strides in the nation’s switch to electric.”
