In an effort to encourage drivers to switch to electric vehicles and with increasing Guest demand, here at Chiswick Park we have installed 12 new electric car charging points located in the campus car park.
The newly installed electric charging points are available for Guests and Guest's Visitors use. Together with the two existing ones, it brings the total of electric car charging points on the campus to 14. There are some additional charging points in the undercrofts of some buildings, which have been installed by Guest Companies working within those buildings and are for their sole private use only.
The new charging points are 22kw fast chargers offering up to 90 miles based on a one-hour charge. We have partnered with ChargePoint charging stations to offer cutting-edge hardware technology that is rigorously tested to be safe and reliable. The stations are designed to be driver-friendly, offering a premium charging experience.
“We believe that we have a major role to play in driving the uptake of electric vehicles and providing charging infrastructure to help improve air quality in London. We are proud to be delivering such a great offering as more of our Guests onsite consider a transition to electric vehicles. We are planning to increase the number of charging points by 2022 as part of our ESG strategy especially our focus around environmental and active travel.“
Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work has given a new brand identity, Recharge, to cover all electric vehicle offerings on the campus.
In addition, the campus offers 800 secure bike spaces and repair stations. Plus a wide range of services and equipment for cyclists, including shower rooms, lockers and changing facilities in each building, security CCTV equipment and a free one-day bike hire service available for short and long-term hire.
