Sustainable business boost as Harrogate firm partners with North East electric vehicle specialist
Sustainable businesses are set to benefit from a new partnership between a Yorkshire based commercial energy supplier and an electric vehicle charging company.
CNG Energy has teamed up with Elmtronics, headquartered in Consett, to support the increase in demand from businesses seeking carbon free vehicles by providing on-site electronic vehicle charging points.
According to data, registrations of new battery electric vehicle tripled in June, up 262 per cent year on year. The rise comes following new technological advancements in the range and overall battery life of electric vehicles, as well as more popular, mid-range car models being made available in electric form.
Businesses can utilise government funding to purchase electric company cars, as part of a national scheme to meet net-zero carbon targets.
Ellis Hall, head of partners at CNG said: “We are thrilled to have partnered with Elmtronics to provide businesses with even more opportunities to realise where reductions can be made on carbon emissions and costs.
“With the EV market continuing to rise, more car models being released, continued improvement of charging infrastructure and government funding, Elmtronics are our trusted partner to provide businesses with the advice and expertise for installing EV charge points.
“We have already planned installations at CNG’s Head Office for employees and visitors.”
Simon Tate, sales director at Elmtronics, added: “Up until recently there has been fear around EV, range anxiety and the purchase price of these vehicles being outlined as unaffordable.
“In reality, as people speak to experts and learn more about the day to day life of owning an EV, they become so much more comfortable as they realise it isn’t as complicated as first thought.
“We can see the fear is beginning to slip away making room for excitement and there’s a real buzz around EV.”
