Electrifying urban mobility, to decarbonise the transport system and minimise air pollution
With rapid, continued growth in the volumes of Electric Vehicles (EV) on our roads, and a new vehicle petrol and diesel ban confirmed for 2030 in the UK, we deliver accurate geointelligence that accelerates the deployment of EV charging infrastructure, supporting a range of stakeholders in their drive towards a net-zero urban landscape.
Decarbonising the transport sector
In dense urban areas, with large numbers of vehicles, high emission levels and poor air quality, the challenge to implement a practical EV infrastructure simply must be met. It is estimated that 290 million charging points will be required globally by 2040, at an investment of $500 billion – but currently deployment is not keeping pace with rapid EV uptake. The complexities of a city landscape can make charge point installation a daunting prospect, but, through the deployment of proven geointelligence solutions, we can support EV roll-out strategy development and implementation in a scalable and cost effective manner.

Sustainable Mobility Strategies
Through our EV focused analytics and software we are supporting the strategic planning and implementation of e mobility infrastructure. We digitalise the site selection and survey process, simplifying the identification and assessment of potential sites without the need to deploy staff across the city. Our services support applications including EV charge point roll out, bus and cycle lane implementation, Connected Autonomous Vehicle route planning, vehicle air pollution analysis, on-street parking levels and behaviour, pedestrian travel, street light upgrades and more.
EV Charging Assessment
Detailed urban intelligence surrounding pavement and road geometries, off-street parking availability, traffic volumes, power network constraints, and on-street parking behaviour to enable to development of EV infrastructure strategies. The urban analysis can be complemented by socio-demographic profiling to integrate behavioural data with information on the physical environment.

Charging Network Visualisation & Planning
Via the LOCATE platform EV infrastructure stakeholders can rapidly visualise and contextualise critical intelligence that will inform and influence their charging network strategy, and additionally can view sites at a street level, develop implementation plans and export asset reports.
GEOSPATIAL INSIGHT TO ASSESS SOLAR POTENTIAL OF WINCHESTER’S LAND TO SUPPORT CLIMATE AND ENERGY ACTION
Geospatial Insight have been selected by Winchester City Council to assess the solar potential of over 600 square kilometres of its non-urban land, in support of the Authority’s ambitions to become carbon neutral by 2024, and their goal for the entire district to become carbon neutral by 2030. The analysis will also include Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) sites, to enable better decision making about the most beneficial future use of SHELAA locations.
Millions of families in the UK risk being forced into fuel poverty after the energy price cap was increased in April leading to bills going up by £693 for 18 million households on standard tariffs. With further increases of up to £800 expected in October, when the energy price cap is next reviewed, it doesn’t appear there will be a reprieve any time soon. But what is specifically behind the energy crisis in the UK? What have other countries done to avoid similarly disastrous situations? What can the country do to mitigate the impact and help millions of citizens and businesses? And importantly, how can we reduce our reliance on fossil fuels in favour of clean energy sources, such as solar power?
Geospatial Insight have been selected by a consortium of Public Sector bodies, including Isle of Wight Council, South West Net Zero Hub, and the West of England Combined Authority, to undertake a detailed analysis of the Isle of Wight’s key urban conurbations and council owned car parks to support the development of a public EV infrastructure deployment strategy for the south coast island.
