Chargemaster has signed an exclusive sponsor agreement with Cenex LCV2017 to provide charge points for the upcoming exhibition. Cenex LCV2017 is the 10th edition of the Low Carbon Vehicle event taking place on 6–7 September at Millbrook. The partnership makes sure that electric vehicles (EVs) on site are appropriately powered.
Chargemaster is said to be the largest manufacturer of charging points in the UK and operator of the nationwide POLAR charging network. The company has supported LCV events for over seven years.
As the supplier and sponsor of the Cenex LCV2017, Chargemaster will be powering visitors’ parking at the end of the mile straight for the event, as well as supporting the exhibitors with a dedicated EV-charging zone next to the steering pad.
Robert Evans, chief executive of Cenex, which organises the LCV events, said, “We are delighted to partner with Chargemaster to enable a significant facility of rapid charging for both visitors to LCV2017 and exhibitors. Chargemaster has provided top-class support at previous events, as one of the first to understand the potential of the LCV event as a national showcase.”
Chargemaster will bring to the show its Ultracharge units to provide rapid charging to all three standards.
Both visitors and exhibitors will be able to take advantage of these charging points for free throughout LCV2017, and Chargemaster staff will be on hand throughout the event to assist users.
Chargemaster has recently been nominated to the TfL framework to install multiple Ultracharge units in London, supporting the next generation of electric London taxis, which will be mandatory from 1 January 2018. It is expected that several hundred rapid chargers will be installed over the next nine months.
David Martell, chief executive of Chargemaster, commented: “We are delighted to support Cenex again at LCV2017. This is the most prestigious electric vehicle event in the UK, and we look forward to helping the automotive industry stay charged at the event.”
Last year, LCV2016 set a new record attendance with 3,137 visitors, 226 exhibitors and 1,180 organisations represented.
