Oxford City Council is upgrading its Go Ultra Low Oxford project to improve the reliability of the EV chargers following trial results.
Transportandenergy.com reports the council is currently assessing the feedback from phase one and is exploring how it can improve the trial during its second phase. Go Ultra Low Oxford aims to promote electric vehicle charging solutions for Oxford residents who are considering buying an electric vehicle but do not have off-street parking.
The first phase of the project, which took place from July 2017 – June 2019, saw 46 charge-points installed across 28 locations, and the use of 10 electric Co-Wheels car club vehicles. The council is now working on preparations for phase two of the project, which will see the project size increase by up to 100 chargers.
Preparation work for this has included opening up the trial’s electric vehicle chargers to public use, and will also include an evaluation of possible sites for future electric vehicle charging technology.
