We're partnering with the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in relation to the ‘Hyperhubs’ project. The project will deliver 8 ultra-rapid electric vehicle (EV) chargers and 8 rapid chargers installed at two sites in York, accompanied by solar canopy arrays that will have a dedicated battery storage solution in order to support the energy grid during peak hours.
Hyperhubs aims to improve electric vehicle charging provision within the City of York Council boundaries with ultrafast and rapid chargers that will significantly improve the speed of charging in line with the latest EV charging technologies.
The first 2 Hyperhub sites will be strategically located off the ring road next to Monks Cross Park & Ride and next to Poppleton Bar Park & Ride, providing convenient access for residents, visitors, and through traffic.
This will see the creation of bays of EV chargers to allow residents and other drivers to park up and charge without the requirement of long stay.
The ERDF have supported the Hyperhubs project with a grant of £700,000 in order to support our efforts to improve EV infrastructure within York. The funds will allow the project aims of improving the uptake of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) and support residents that do not have domestic off-street parking to be able to trickle charge overnight.
