A Simple Experience for Local Authorities

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

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.

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

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.

Why Us?

Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainability

Our mission to be good for the world is a core part of our DNA.

Mer can help with your sustainability targets. We source our electricity from our sister company Bryt Energy, also part of the Statkraft group, which provides local authorities with zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity sourced solely from solar, wind, and hydro. Their supply product is backed by guarantee of origin certificates so ZERO carbon emissions can be reported for your electricity consumption on Scope 2 carbon emissions under the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol market-based method.

Sustainable growth

Growing in a sustainable manner is essential to us. We are not a private equity-funded company; we have a long-term vision and commitment to the development of the UK EV charging infrastructure. We want to see the public EV charging market being developed intelligently with drivers in mind, not shareholders.
