Newsletter April 2016
Dear Source London Member, We are delighted to have exclusive contributions from the London Mayoral candidates in the run up to the election on 5th May. The next Mayor will have a pivotal role to play in the uptake of electric vehicles in London and we look forward to working closely with them to achieve this.
Newsletter December 2015
Many of you may have noticed already that Source London has improved significantly over the past few months. We are pleased to report that the level of charge point availability is now at 85% compared to 60% availability this time last year. This was made possible thanks to a growing number of private and public partners. We now have 7 boroughs who count on us to solve any type of maintenance issues in Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, Lewisham, Southwark and Sutton. Additional boroughs will be announced in the coming months.
Three additional London Boroughs as part of Source London
BluePointLondon can announce key agreements with three additional London Boroughs for management and maintenance of their electric vehicle charging networks as part of Source London, the city’s electric vehicles charging network.
Source London is delighted to announce that it now has full control of 60 of London's EV charge points
Southwark, Sutton and TfL are on board!
When we took over in September last year, we had limited access to the EV charge points and therefore little authority over maintaining them. We understand this has been deeply frustrating for our valued customers.
As a result, we have been working hard to make sure our customers get the service they deserve. We are pleased to announce that after months of talks, we have made some progress on that front. Following talks with the owners of these charge points (London Boroughs and private entities), we have now gained more power over the network as a whole, by being directly responsible for the operation and maintenance of 60 charge points.
Plug-in schemes aim to drive EV uptake
Electric vehicles could become commonplace on Government fleets and in London through initiatives aimed at driving their early adoption and improving air quality in the capital.
