EDF appointed to help public sector move to EVs: EDF has been appointed by The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to help the UK public sector in its ongoing transition to electric vehicles (EVs).

The development of infrastructure is covered by the agreement, which is required across the country for EV charging for local authorities, central government, hospitals and other public sector bodies.

EDF will work with Pod Point which it acquired earlier this year, who are a supplier of EV charging solutions in the UK.

Having already been appointed for electricity supply and ancillary services, it is the second contract for public sector works between EDF and CCS.

The government’s ambition to bring forward the end of new petrol and diesel car sales to 2035 is supported by the project.

Director of EV Solutions at EDF, Vincent De Rul said: “This appointment further underlines EDF’s role in helping Britain achieve net zero. The installation of effective electric vehicle charging infrastructure is vital to enable progress towards this goal.

“We are delighted that the government has confirmed its faith in our capabilities, following the successful supply contract that we already hold with CCS. We are looking forward to continuing to work with government and public sector customers to help deliver the infrastructure that the UK needs.”
