Electric Vehicle Charging Points for Public Sector Bodies

We work with public sector bodies across the UK and Europe and can help you set up an intelligent, future-fit EV charging infrastructure based on best practices and experience.

Whether you are looking for public EV charging stations in specific locations or exploring adding EV charging hubs, we can help and offer you options depending on your objectives.

EV Charging Site - Workers Planning and Designing Commercial EV Infrastructure

A Complete Service for Local Authorities

Mer offers a complete service from planning your infrastructure together, with you, to grid connection and supply and installation of charging point(s).

We advocate for the right number and type of chargers at the right locations.

We don’t believe in over-installing EV chargers to win bids which can cause local grid strain and/or unused chargers; this is uneconomical and stranded chargers have an environmental impact.

Always Choosing Quality Over Cost

We advise public sector bodies on the best locations and EV charging hardware based on our local and site analysis. We create a site design showing you the electrical infrastructure (substation and feeder pillar connections), and the proposed chargers’ location with bollards and bay marking. We choose quality over price to ensure reliability.

Case Study: Durham County Council

Durham County Council joined a consortium of partners – that included EV charging specialists Mer – to deliver a groundbreaking project called ‘Scaling On-Street Charging Infrastructure’ (SOSCI).

Durham County Council was keen to position itself at the forefront of efforts to reduce carbon emissions – and work with partners and local communities both to lower air pollution and help residents save money on fuel costs. Learn how Mer supported the project.

Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainable Growth

Our Drive to be Good For the World is a Core Part of Our DNA

We source our electricity from our sister company, Bryt Energy, also part of the Statkraft group. Bryt Energy’s zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity is sourced solely from Solar, Wind, and Hydro meaning customers can report zero carbon emissions for electricity consumption under Scope 2 carbon emissions under the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol market-based method.
