Highways England is funding an electric vehicle loan project for businesses in Nottingham, with the vehicles eventually destined to become part of the city council’s vehicle fleet.
HE has awarded £2.69m to the project from its air quality fund. Most (£2.1m) will be used to purchase about 50 battery electric vehicles – a mix of small cars and light and medium-sized vans.
Of the remaining funding, £300,000 will be spent on 7-22kW chargepoints at business premises or possibly employees’ homes, and £140,000 will contribute towards two electric vehicle chargepoint hubs at Nottingham City Council’s Eastcroft and Woolsthorpe depots.
Nottingham City Council is contributing £1m to the overall project.
The council will incorporate the vehicles into its fleet at the end of the two-year loan period.
The loan project will initially target organisations in the city but could be extended to cover businesses in Nottinghamshire and Derby, as part of the Transforming Cities Fund/Future Transport Zone programme opportunities.
Highways England has also funded a loan scheme in Leeds (LTT 01 Mar 19).
