Charge points for EVs are not only found at home, at work and at petrol stations, but also everywhere in public spaces. With ubitricity, it is now possible to charge electric vehicles at urban lamp posts.
Fully integrated or fixed to the column, the lamp post charge points by ubitricity allows city residents without a private parking space to charge easily with a standard type 2 cable in the immediate surrounding of their home.
Today, there are already more than 4,500 charge points by ubitricity installed around the UK, making it the country’s largest public charge network!

Possibilities for lamp post charging in your country
ubitricity wants to work with cities, authorities and municipalities all over Europe to make lamp post charging possible for every EV driver.
Currently, we are already active in the UK, in Germany and France and are also doing several pilot projects in Ireland, Switzerland and other countries. Please contact us to talk about the possibilities in your country and city.
Public EV charge points for urban residential areas
Charging at lamp posts in urban regions offers enormous potential, as 40 to 60 percent of drivers living in major UK cities do not have a private parking space and thus no possibility to charge conveniently at their doorstep overnight.
ubitricity’s lamp post charge point “Chelsea” closes this gap and enables a UK-wide expansion of charging infrastructure in public spaces, thus supporting the adoption of electric vehicles.
