Surrey County Council reveals plans to deliver 10,000 charge points


Connected Kerb, in partnership with Surrey County Council, has revealed plans to rollout 10,000 public EV chargers across the county by 2030.

The UK’s largest rollout of public EV charging infrastructure by a local authority will result in the installation of charging points at more than 1,500 locations across streets and public car parks.

It is expected to deliver more than 5,000 fast charging points by 2027, including over 500 rapid charging points across the county.

The £60 million rollout in Surrey will consist of Connected Kerb’s entire product range, including 7kW and 22kW Gecko chargers, Chameleon chargers for on-street and car parks, the wall-mounted Limpet and the Scarab throughout housing developments.

Connected Kerb’s Chameleon charger has been designed specifically to cater to those with accessibility needs. Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said: “If local authorities are the door to a clean transport future, then charging networks like Connected Kerb are the key, providing the tools and expertise needed to unlock the transition at the pace and scale required to reach net zero.

“Although the Government’s estimate of 300,000 chargers by 2030 may feel ambitious, it’s eminently possible – and necessary – to achieve; this deal proves it.”

Matt Furniss, Cabinet Member for Transport, Infrastructure and Growth, Surrey County Council, said: “Over the last two years, we’ve installed over 100 EV charge points in Surrey, and this has given us the opportunity to trial different suppliers and processes.

“We have an established relationship with Connected Kerb and this contract will enable us to expand our network of charge points and speed up the installation process, to provide services to our residents faster.”
