Royal London becomes latest Mitie customer to use charge point install service
Royal London has become the latest Mitie customer to take advantage of its electric vehicle charge point installation service.
The 10 new charge points have been installed by Mitie at the Royal London office in Alderley Park and will help the UK’s largest mutual insurance, pensions and investment company with its sustainability strategy.
In addition to the initial installation, Mitie will also help Royal London maintain and manage its EV charge point infrastructure and carry out ongoing monitoring of charge point usage, to track trends and assess future charging needs.
Mitie has now deployed more than 850 charge points for customers across the UK and Ireland. These are in addition to the 1,000-plus EV chargers already installed at Mitie’s own sites and at its employees’ homes, supporting its own switch to electric vehicles; earlier this year, the facilities management and professional services company passed the landmark of 1,000 EVs and it’s believed to have the largest electric fleet in the UK.
It’s the latest work by Mitie to support companies wanting to make the switch to electric vehicles. To share its EV expertise, Mitie launched its EV Fleet Transition Service in July 2020.
In addition to this, Mitie has launched a whitepaper on EV charge point infrastructure, outlining the key factors that businesses should consider when designing their charge point programme. It details the different ownership and billing models for charge points as well as grants available for businesses to fund their fleet decarbonisation plans.
Pradyumna Pandit, managing director, sustainability and energy services, Mitie, said: “Climate change is a fight we cannot win alone, so we’re using our energy management and zero emission fleet expertise to support our customers in reaching their own sustainability goals. From the design and installation of charge points to engineering maintenance and optimisation, we’re supporting our customers throughout their entire fleet electrification journey to help accelerate the decarbonisation of Britain and Ireland.”
