A rapid and widescale transition to Electric Vehicles (EV) is a key component of achieving Net Zero by 2050. By fusing multiple data sources with advanced analytics, LOCATE EV delivers network planning tools that accelerate the infrastructure deployment process.

Current EV Infrastructure Landscape

With the government targeting 300,000 public chargepoints by 2030, more needs to be done to create actionable strategies to deploy the necessary infrastructure. The complex UK landscape and a lack of dedicated resource is limiting the speed of infrastructure roll out, with less than 1 in 5 Local Authorities having a dedicated EV resource whilst over 50% of Local Authorities do not have an EV strategy in place.

The LOCATE EV platform brings together critical datasets and intuitive functionality to facilitate EV chargepoint network planning across complex areas. Digitalising the most manually intensive elements of the site survey and verification process, LOCATE EV enables infrastructure stakeholders to rapidly and accurately determine current and future charging demand. LOCATE EV also facilitates assessment and validation of effective charging networks by identifying situational and power-based constraints to deployment.
