AFP appeals for data on fleet kerbside charging demand

Date: 17 January 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Data on where kerbside EV charging facilities are needed by fleets is being sought by the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP).

The appeal is part of the organisation's project to create a national map showing street-by-street demand for charging.

It would like fleets to provide information on locations of their current and expected demand for kerbside charging, which will be anonymised by the AFP.

The organisation's chair Paul Hollick said: "By drawing from within the AFP and some other recognised sources, we can collate geographical information on around 160,000 potential and existing drivers to construct the initial draft of the map.

"However, it makes sense to open the process up to all fleet operators who are embarking on the process of electrification and we'd now like to hear from as many organisations as possible, whether they run a dozen vehicles or thousands.

"If you tell us where you need charging, we can share the information with national and local government, as well as charging and electricity providers, to see where kerbside chargers are most urgently needed. This should help to guide future provision." 

Hollick added that the AFP expected to have the first version of the map ready by the end of Q1, and that the subject had created more interest than any other with which the AFP had been involved.

Fleets can register their interest via ­- an AFP member will contact them subsequently.
