Key Benefits for Local Authorities
Achieve Net Zero
Gul-e supports decarbonisation efforts. Implementing Gul-e as a charging option for on-street residents can support Councils in reaching local EV Strategy, Transport Decarbonisation and Net-Zero policy targets.
Avoids Trip Hazards
A rising number of EV users dangerously trail cables across the footway. Designed in conjunction with Oxfordshire’s Highways Authority, the Gul-e abides by Highway regulations and does not cause trip hazards.
Supports EV Growth
Up to 24.6% of UK households can gain access to safe and competitively priced at-home charging. This will encourage EV adoption for those that are discouraged by the cost and inconvenience of public charging.
Reduce Infrastructure Spend
The affordable cost will be suitable for self-funding, therefore reducing the need for Council investment in infrastructure and maintenance. The solution also provides a potential income stream for local Councils.
Reduce Street Clutter
Current on-street charging options include dangerous trailing charger cables, and/or costly on-street EV charger installations. Gul-e maintains the streetscape and avoids residents paving their front gardens.
Avoid publicly funded grid costs
By utilising home charging the need for Council investment in public grid connections is reduced. Furthermore, overnight charging is encouraged, therefore reducing grid pressures and grid reinforcement costs.
Aids healthy market competition
By providing residents with a choice between home charging or public charging provision, Gul-e prevents the establishment of monopolies. This may make it easier to procure for public providers at a larger scale.
Built to Last
The Gul-e has been designed with durability and sustainability at its core. The simple, non-electronic design can withstand developments and upgrades of EV charging technology (such as wall chargers and cables).
