At this conference industry speakers will showcase new hardware and software EV charge point innovations that will improve the customer experience and contribute to the delivery of charging infrastructure across the UK.


The conference will also consider what can be learnt from the European experience of rolling out charging infrastructure at scale.



KPort Portishead EV Charging Hub


A glimpse of the future is coming to Portishead with plans to build the first of our K:Port electric car charging stations.


The four-vehicle Demonstration Charging Hub aims to give residents and visitors in the North Somerset area a taste for what it would be like to dump the diesel and switch to electric, offering rapid 50kW charging which takes around 30 minutes to top up a typical EV battery.


The proposals are part of the Go Ultra Low West project, which is a joint government and industry campaign to help motorists and fleets understand the benefits, cost savings and capabilities of electric vehicles on the market.


The Department for Transport Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) has given North Somerset Council £370,000 to design and build the K:Port as part of a larger package of works within Go Ultra Low West project in partnership with the West of England authorities.


Councillor Elfan Ap Rees, deputy leader and executive member with responsibility for transport, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for North Somerset to be the first in the country to have a K:Port Demonstration Charging Hub to benefit residents in the Portishead and wider area.”


“The Go Ultra Low West project has brought many advantages including converting 40% of the council’s fleet to electric vehicles and assisting businesses to install charge points at work for visitors and staff using 50% match funded grants.”


“It is also great to be working with such a renowned architectural firm, which has really brought to fruition the idea of the hub being a place to truly experience the benefits of going electric or hybrid.”
