Supported by Welsh government, renewables company Dulas is looking to install a solar-powered electric vehicle (EV) charging station at its head office. The station is set to combine solar power with energy storage technology and will be a test for the company, as it seeks to discover more commercial solutions for using renewable energy as a direct source for EV charging.

The first solar powered Park and Ride centre opens this week in Stourton, south Leeds, in a move that should reduce commuting times and costs while curbing congestion and pollution in the city centre. The £38.5m project is the city’s third Park and Ride site and will be powered entirely by solar panels and a battery storage system, which has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The Park and Ride will also use only zero-emission electric buses from First West Yorkshire, the region’s largest bus operator, that will reach the city centre in 15 minutes. In addition, the site incorporates 26 electric vehicle (EV) charging points that will be powered by the solar array and battery.
