The UK's innovation and research body, Innovate UK, has awarded £335,000 to the joint project aiming to improve public electric vehicle charging infrastructure in rural areas.
Under the project, DG Cities and EDF will use data from the National Grid to plot where public EV charging points would be most beneficial.
At locations where charging point installations would be beneficial, but implementation would prove challenging, workaround solutions will be developed.
The research and trial period will end in March 2022. After that, the consortium partners will report on their findings, proposing a new business model to other rural councils across the UK.
