The Ministry of Justice has announced it is installing new charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) at 45 prison sites.

Four suppliers have been selected to install the charging sockets, with Connected Kerb and VolkerSmart Technologies having already installed 25 across seven sites.

The 22kW chargers will support the Ministry as it transitions its fleets to EVs.

CEO of Connected Kerb, Chris Pateman-Jones, commented: “It is great to see environmental stewardship coming from central Government and it’s our hope that projects like these will pave the way for British organisations to join in electrifying their vehicle fleets, in turn cutting emissions and improving air quality for people across the UK.”
