Building the UK’s electric vehicle infrastructure with ESPO Framework 636

As more people choose to make the switch to electric vehicles (EV) and with the increasing pressure on the government to deliver on their ‘Road to Zero’ strategy, the UK has now become one of the top European countries for EV sales.

If your organisation would like to support the use of EVs, there is specific government funding available to help organisations with the set-up costs of installing EV charging points. Installing points will not only help build the UK’s electric vehicle infrastructure but can be a source of income for you once it is up and running.

To support public sector organisations with charging solutions for electric vehicles, we have a Vehicle Charging Infrastructure framework (636) which offers EU/UK procurement compliant access to market leading suppliers.

What you can get via the framework:

  • Rapid, ultra-fast and standard charge options
  • Compatible back office solutions
  • Options for turnkey or ‘pick and choose’ solutions
  • Both purchase and lease options
  • Direct award option can be used to reduce time
  • Free Buyer’s Guide available to help identify solutions
  • Access to further competition documents for complex requirements

The framework also supports emerging technologies; including battery energy storage, vehicle to grid, car port chargers, bus chargers, mobile chargers, charging test equipment and parking bay sensors.

There are endless options for charging points that organisations can choose from, such as whether to lease or purchase, solutions to fit in with surrounding aesthetics and whether to include a tariff for charging. As with all our frameworks, it is completely free to access and our procurement experts are on hand to support you as much or as little as you need.
