The race to meet UK’s net zero goals through data and digital

With the sale of new petrol cars banned by 2030, the UK needs investment in both generation capacity and, particularly, distribution to meet the increased demand for electricity.

Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Investor Application

Our application is for commercial investors in electric vehicle energy infrastructure who need up-to-date understanding of current and planned initiatives and the energy system as it changes in accordance with achieving the UK’s net-zero goals.

  • Provide curated access to core standards compliant data and models, with a facility to build run-time simulations of investment models

  • Collaborative, cloud-based, curated modelling environment with open-source aspects

  • Free-to-use and additional paid premium information/features that cuts through the complexity of acquiring the core knowledge that is inherently held by the technical leadership within distribution network operators

Building Electric Vehicles infrastructure is complicated

  • 8 electricity distribution regions operated by 6 companies

    Speak to them and find all the people and then find the data and information to build a business case is an effort

  • 408 local authorities

    Finding people in planning decisions and data and information regarding local planning requirements is time consuming

  • When and where of supply?

    Understanding the position of cars and traffic 24 /7


Remove complexity. Help investors make better decisions about EV infrastructure investment.
