Clenergy EV is installing ten EV charging points for the soon-to-be-completed Swansea Arena, at Copr Bay.

The chargers, manufactured by Schneider Electric and which allow for RFID card payment, will be available this month for all EV drivers via the Clenergy EV app or guest checkout.

They are part of Copr Bay’s net-zero and sustainability commitments, strongly supported by Swansea Council.

A wider rollout of chargers across the city will take place in later 2022.

Swansea Arena is part of the £135m regeneration scheme Copr Bay – located next to the Swansea Marina and beachfront.

The multi-purpose Arena will host multiple events, from musical entertainment to esports tournaments and business conferences.

Copr Bay itself will receive its own set of EV charge points in the near future, in the north-side car park of the development.

Will David, CEO of Clenergy EV, said: “We are happy to support Swansea’s aim of becoming Net Zero by 2050. To do that we must ensure that charging opportunities readily exist across the county.”

“These chargers give EV Drivers in Wales a chance to top-up their vehicles whilst attending incredible events in the new Arena.”

Andrea Lewis, the council’s joint deputy leader and cabinet member for climate change and service transformation, said: “We’ve installed more than 30 charging points across the area and aim to continue installing them, including 30 in Copr Bay’s north-side car park when it opens in the coming months.

“We’re also investigating the feasibility – and funding options – of developing a city centre charging hub which would be available to multiple users including taxis.

“These measures – and others – will help us in our aim to make Swansea Net Zero by 2050.”
