Wakefield-based sustainability consultants EV3POWER have taken on an extra 20 EV charger installers, taking their installation team to 50.
The new employees, all qualified electrical engineers, will be based in Yorkshire and around the country operating from EV3’s 24 regional hubs.
The increase in workforce has been driven by new client wins, as the increase in demand for EV chargers and electric vehicles continues to skyrocket. So far this year, sales of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) – both of which require chargers - have increased by 177.4% and 151.4% respectively on 2020 (Source SMMT).
EV3 partners with some of the world’s leading EV charger manufacturers.
Their EV installation division handles volume installations for large scale infrastructure projects, electric buses and trucks, as well as smaller scale installations for individual business and domestic customers.
“The demand in electric vehicles is driving the need for EV chargers across the UK,” said Managing Director Pete Bevils, “and that is a trend that will continue. The world is waking up to EV – events such as the current fuel crisis has highlighted our unsustainable reliance on fossil fuels and the benefits of owning electric vehicles.
“Our growth is driven by demand from our customers and partners and, besides the obvious commercial benefits of this growth, it shows that as a society people are making more environmentally conscious decisions as part of their everyday lives and that is a good think for the long term future of everyone.”
As well as EV charging, EV3 helps business become more environmentally friendly by creating commercially viable sustainability solutions. They advise corporate and independent business on the best way to move ‘off grid’ by generating their own electricity from renewable sources.
With a portfolio of services that includes hydrogen fuel cells, wind, solar and hydroelectric power, they develop bespoke plans that enables business to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and eventually become carbon positive.
