We are backed by Statkraft, Europe’s largest supplier of renewable energy and are investing in the UK EV charging infrastructure. We deliver:
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 practice and experience. But don’t take our words for it. We can put you in touch with local authorities we work with.
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 offer 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), the proposed chargers’ location with bollards and bay marking. We choose quality over price to ensure reliability.

We regularly interview our customers to find out more about their EV charging habits and what improvements they would like to see. In our latest survey, customers rated our app 4 out of 5 citing the great user experience, 87% would recommend us to a friend and many would like to see more Mer rapid and ultra-rapid public chargers being installed.
With more EVs on the road, it is crucial to build an infrastructure fit for the future and accessible to all and this is how we do it:
Some public sector bodies may be eligible to utilise existing public framework agreements depending on their geographic location. These frameworks aim to save time and costs on tendering processes. We offer financed packages via the following frameworks:
Kent County Council via KCS Professional Services have created a National Framework Agreement for the supply and delivery of Electrical Vehicle Charging Point and Associated Services. We are a preferred supplier for electric vehicle and bus charging on this Framework, which is accessible to all public sector bodies. Through the Framework, Mer can provide a fully funded solution for public sector bodies to roll out charging infrastructure across their property portfolio. The associated Services also allow us to provide a holistic solution, including Solar PV and Battery Storage solutions.
Mer have been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Solutions (VCIS) framework.
This framework offers public sector bodies access to vehicle charging infrastructure services. We offer local governments a solution that fits their specific needs and budget.
We offer fully funded, part funded, or you decide if you want to own the infrastructure. We also provide Bay rental where we rent parking bays and offer profit share.
Mer can help with your sustainability targets. We source our electricity from our sister company Bryt Energy, also part of the Statkraft group, who provide 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.
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.
Statkraft, our owner, are not new to clean energy, they have been producing renewable energy for over a century. Statkraft develop, own and operate wind, solar, hydro and greener-grid projects.
Statkraft and Mer believe that renewable energy is both a solution to climate change and more economical than conventional fossil fuel energy. Statkraft’ strong credit has enabled many third-party projects to gain finance for their new build projects, saving 70 billion tonnes of CO2 over their life in the UK alone.
Mer, with the help of other Statkraft businesses, can create packages of charging, storage and electricity maximising convenience and cost savings.
