Dundee council approves plan for 20 solar-powered electric vehicle chargers. Dundee City Council’s electric vehicle (EV) push is stepping up a gear with the approval of a plan to bring more chargers to a multi-storey car park. The move will see 20 EV chargers installed on the roof of the Greenmarket car park, powered by an array of solar panels and additional electrical infrastructure beside the car park’s exit. It is believed the devices will be so-called “trickle chargers” which a car can be plugged into all day to charge up at a slower rate.

Bristol City Council has awarded Bristol Energy its electricity supply contract following a competitive tender. The contract is for one year and consists of around 30GWh, which is roughly equivalent to enough power to supply 10,000 homes. This follows Bristol Energy winning the contract for gas supply in November 2018, meaning that all of Bristol City Council’s sites including council offices, museums, council managed schools, libraries and care facilities energy will be supplied by Bristol Energy.
