Camden Council hands over responsibility for EV chargers

Camden London Borough Council has selected a charging solutions operator to assume responsibility for the ongoing operation and maintenance of 92 charge points across the borough, which were part of the Go Ultra Low City Scheme (GULCS) contract which is soon to expire.

As part of the Council’s Electric Vehicle Charging Point Action Plan, they provide charging operator Ubitricity with a year-long contract to align the borough’s EV charging infrastructure ahead of a new operation and maintenance tender later in 2024.
The first round of GULCS contracts were awarded in 2018, with 92 charge points deployed across Camden by Ubitricity and its partner, Siemens.

As the first round of GULCS contracts are coming to an end, this means that contracts for the ongoing operation and maintenance of the existing charge points will come to market, and Camden has selected ubitricity to oversee the ongoing operation and maintenance of its charge point infrastructure.
“Since 2018 we have overseen the delivery and operation of Camden’s network of EV charge points under the GULCS scheme, and are thrilled to be able to provide a continuity of service to the Borough and its EV users ahead of the new tender,” said Toby Butler, UK managing director at Ubitricity.

“With our unrivalled experience delivering on the key requirements of existing GULCS contracts, and an established team running the UK’s largest EV charge point network, ubitricity can provide Camden with a seamless transition to ensure that their network will continue to operate as normal.”
