Schools could unlock £36million in electric vehicle infrastructure grants

A specialist EV solutions provider is encouraging schools, nurseries and colleges across the UK to make the most of Government grants available to them, that will support the plan and delivery of their chargepoint infrastructures, in a bid to help make  educational institutions across the country greener.

Expert renewable energy and EV solutions provider, The E-Merge Group, specialises in the planning, installation and maintenance of EV infrastructures, and the team is calling on educational institutions across the UK to boost chargepoint facilities for staff and visitors by leaning on the support of Government-based, education sector-specific grants. 

These include the Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) Fund, which was announced recently and could provide up to 75 percent of the cost to buy and install chargepoints. Likewise, the Government’s Plan for Drivers initiative incorporates grants for schools, cash for councils and new proposals to boost chargepoint numbers to improve the country’s EV infrastructure. 

With more drivers making the switch and fully electric vehicles accounting for more than 16 percent of the new UK car market*, the funding, combined with a certified installation partner, will help the UK reach its climate change commitments, while charting the fairest path to net zero.

What’s more, over the next 12 months, the E-Merge Group team is committing to educating and upskilling pupils across the UK by holding and sponsoring talks in schools and colleges on the importance of renewable energy and the power of implementing sustainable solutions in everyday life.

Charlotte Ward, Co-Founder of E-Merge Group, which works with businesses to roll out bespoke renewable solution packages, comments: “By helping to unlock Government funding and grants, we’re dedicated to supporting schools and local authorities across the UK to build a greener, more sustainable nation.

“The funding is available for state-funded schools, colleges, nurseries and academies to boost the chargepoint facilities. To unlock a portion of the £36 million on offer, schools must work with their local authorities to access their indicative funding, following a three step process. 

“Organisations within the education sector are perfectly positioned to support the establishment of a nationwide charging network that’s accessible post-5pm and on weekends, thanks to the typical hours within which they operate, meaning schools, nurseries, colleges and the like can contribute significantly to helping the UK establish a more robust EV infrastructure.

“The E-Merge Group team is dedicated to helping businesses unlock their renewable energy and EV potential, guiding them in making the most of Government support and providing the most technologically-advanced solutions to help make their sustainability objectives become a reality, all the while helping them enhance their bottom line.”
