The Pilot Group’s display and advertising options, offering both a revenue opportunity and a chance for business customers to view promotional materials provided by the business at the location, were both considered very useful additions, especially to service office environments. The office building is a hi-tech digital hub, which complemented the ethos of the space, as well as being able to service the needs of several users who are owners of electric cars but previously have been unable to use charging points while at the office.
The Pilot Group and its partners ensured that the site was properly fitted, installing the EV charging points as well as taking care of all elements of installation from car bay marking at the car park facility, to conducting the utility company management process to ensure full access to electricity to prepare the charging points for use.
The energy will be supplied by Octopus Energy, a fully renewable supplier of energy, which allows not only for the emissions-reducing electric cars to be charged but to be charged using less polluting forms of electricity. In the words of Alan MacLeod,
“That’s the beauty of electrifying transport – power is all around us”.
The Pilot Group ensured that the Pure Energy UK team have been fully trained on the charging points dashboard, allowing them to provide quality measurements and reporting to their clients.
According to Alan MacLeod, they “see a very big market for this, so it’s great for us to have a chance in this first installation to see how things work – and things have worked very well. So we want to build on that going forward, particularly next year.”
“The Pilot Group has been great, they know it’s important for them, it’s important for us – so we’re putting all the effort in to make sure it works well. Then we want to market as much as we can out of it!”
