e-mobility for everyone – with lamp post charge points for the UK

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 possible to charge electric vehicles at urban lamp posts in the UK.

Fully integrated into the lamp post, the charging point “Chelsea” allows UK’s city residents without a private parking space to charge easily with a standard type 2 cable in the immediate surroundings of their home.

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 towns and cities do not have a private parking space with 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.

Easy access to public EV charge points

A charge point for electric vehicles is only as good as its user-friendliness. At ubitricity charge points, EV drivers can choose between different access, billing and payment options.
