UK’s Connected Energy will supply its E-STOR energy storage systems for an upcoming EV charging hub on Princes Street, Dundee, UK. The hub will be the flagship site of Dundee City Council’s ‘Go Ultra Low’ Cities project.
The E-STOR uses second life Renault electric vehicle (EV) batteries. Last year, Connected Energy and Renault installed quick charging stations on highways in Belgium and Germany.
The new hub, which is due to be constructed in the spring of this year, will incorporate 6 rapid chargers and solar canopies alongside the 60 kW, 90 kWh E-STOR system.
Swarco Group’s eVolt has secured the overall contract and will be managing installation.
Matthew Lumsden, CEO of Connected Energy said – “This is a landmark project in terms of the development of EV charging hubs in the UK so we are very pleased to be contributing to the development of the system and the supporting operational and business case.”
Lynne Short convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said – “This is an important project for the city and it will take us to the next level when it comes to our charging infrastructure.
“Within the 26 square miles of perfection that is Dundee we will have a charging network second to none and working with skilled and efficient suppliers is a key part of that.”
