Mer EV Charging Frameworks
Kent County Council via KCS Professional Services
Mer is also a preferred supplier for the supply and delivery of Electric Vehicle Charging Point and Associated Services (EVAS) – a framework developed by Kent County Council and KCS Professional Services, that is available to all public sector bodies across the UK.
Through this, Mer again can provide a full EV charging solution – including the design, supply, installation, support and maintenance of EV chargepoints.
Mer’s additional ‘associated services’ include holistic EV charging solutions – such as Solar PV and Battery Storage amenities.
Crown Commercial Services
EV charging experts Mer have been named as approved suppliers for the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) EV charging framework – known as the ‘Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Solutions (VCIS) Dynamic Purchasing System Agreement.’
Mer – backed by Statkraft, Europe’s largest supplier of renewable energy – offers a full end-to-end charging infrastructure solution, including funding, installation and project delivery, to support the transition to low-emission vehicles.
LAs can access the CCS framework here, or by registering with the government’s contract finder on the Find a Tender Service (FTS) which has replaced the EU’s ‘Tenders Electronic Daily’ (TED).
CCS is a ‘dynamic purchasing system (DPS)’ – an electronic method of procurement that operates an ‘open market’ for suppliers.
One of the main benefits of a DPS is that it is open for suppliers to join it on a frequent basis – so LAs can choose contractors that meet their changing needs, while speeding up the process with a fully electronic route to market.
ESPO is a public sector owned professional buying organisation. The Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (VCI 2) framework provides access to electric vehicle charging infrastructure solutions including fast/rapid and ultra-rapid chargers and compatible back-office solutions.
As an awarded supplier, Mer can supply, deliver, install and commission electric vehicle charge points to specification with both purchase and lease options offered.
Service and maintenance of existing EVCPs, consultancy services and emerging technologies are also covered through the framework. ESPO offers a direct award to simplify the process as well as pre-agreed terms and conditions. More info here.
