For businesses with EV fleets, it will be an essential operating factor with multiple considerations to take into account when considering the procurement, management and supply of EV charge points.
Siting – which sites and where will they be located?
Ownership – do you want to own or rent
Users and fees – Who will use and will you charge a fee?
Charging speed – Slow, fast or rapid charging?

Sustainable Business Services can work with you to review your current usage associated and potential ROI through an energy audit.
If our audits present infrastructure improvements to make energy savings we will tell you and work out your pay back time to help you make a decision.
If investing in new infrastructure is not possible for you at that time we have funding that will cover the up-front costs. Its paid for through the savings that we validate it makes, which means you have no cash flow impact from the improvement. Once the capital is repaid the asset passes over to you.
Improvements we can fund are:
Ground Source Heat
Borehole (For Water)
All of our infrastructure improvements are surveyed and designed by our engineers and a comprehensive feasibility study and cost-benefit analysis is carried out. You can then either choose to invest in the technology yourself based on our findings or enable us to design, fund, install and manage the asset on your behalf.
