Decarbonising transport is a formidable challenge, and the deployment of electric vehicle infrastructure must rapidly grow to meet this challenge and deliver the UK Government’s ambitious plans.

Electrifying bus infrastructure We provide a turnkey solution to electrify bus depots across UK and Ireland. Our expertise builds on our development of the electrical infrastructure in London, where we worked in partnership with operators, transport authorities and bus companies, across six London depots. To optimise use of the infrastructure, we are also developing options for fleet charging during the day when buses are predominantly out on the road. Researching Vehicle-to-Grid potential Our EV teams have been leading on an innovative project delivered by an industry and academic partnership. The Bus2Grid project will deliver the UK’s first e-bus to grid multi-megawatt demonstration at commercial scale. Developing a bi-directional charging infrastructure that allows batteries to both take through and feed to the grid will deliver a significant boost to energy system stability by supporting the system flexibility needed to help the UK meet its vital climate change targets in a cost-effective manner. Utilising our Whole System Thinking methodology, we will take you on your electrification journey from initial feasibility studies through to design and installation. We’ll work with you to ensure that your solution stays optimal, delivers against your energy and sustainability objectives and is future proofed.

Providing reliable and efficient Electric Vehicle infrastructure is one of the cornerstones of SSE Energy Solutions’ portfolio. Working in partnership with fleet and bus operators, we invest in and deliver rapid charging facilities to help UK and Ireland businesses and local authorities meet their climate change targets. Ultra-rapid Community EV Hubs We are investing in a scalable, strategic network of EV ultra-rapid community charging hubs across the UK, providing a different range of charging points. Located predominantly in urban areas, these Community Hubs will be in clusters of between 10 and 20 bays, serving fleets who need reliable infrastructure close to their business routes as well as residents without off-street parking. To maximise the comfort of the drivers, where possible, we will provide refreshment and restroom facilities, along with Wi-Fi connectivity. Our chargers are supplied with renewably sourced electricity and will incorporate solar pv generation on canopies, and potential private electricity networks when required. Fleet depots SSE Energy Solutions offers a full end-to-end charging transition program for local authorities and large corporate organisations that have their own depots requiring EV charge points on site. We can assist public and private fleet operators in all the key steps of the process, from initial consulting, to design and installation, to maintenance and operations.
