COP26 | The two questions you need to ask about EV charging stations

Julia Hatmaker

Pegasus Group outlines how to ensure electric vehicle charging units are as green as promised in this latest episode of the Place North West COP26 podcast series.

Electric vehicles are on the rise as the UK pushes for net zero, which means more and more EV charging stations are needed. But before you add an EV charging unit to your scheme you need to answer two very important questions:

  • How will it be powered?
  • Where will it go?

Pegasus executive director and environmental planner Andrew Cook delves into each question to propose solutions that will help your scheme maximise its sustainability credentials. Listen to the podcast at the top of this article to hear Cook’s essential tips for EV charging units.

Pegasus Group is a leading development consultancy specialising in planning, design, environment, economics, heritage, transport & infrastructure, and property. The company has considerable experience across the energy sector including solar, on and offshore wind, bio-energy, tidal power, energy from waste, anaerobic digestion and hydropower.

The answer to the second question should be: on the carriageway; not obstructing footways.
