Urban Fox, the electric vehicle (EV) chargepoint operator is a partnership between Balfour Beatty Investments, the international infrastructure investor, and Urban Electric Networks, a British EV chargepoint operating company.
We provide local authorities with a whole life solution to near-home EV charging infrastructure: funding, installing, operating and maintaining a range of slow, fast and rapid on-street and car park chargepoints from Urban Electric Networks and a range of other market-leading manufacturers. This includes our innovative 7kW on-street retractable chargepoint which is the first of its kind to the market.
Last year when we commissioned these on-street residential chargers through a combination of funding, including local and Scottish Government, we wanted to start breaking down some of the barriers to owning and running an electric vehicle. In particular recognising that more than half of the city’s homes don’t have access to off street parking by putting these chargers at seven locations spread across the Maryfield, Lochee and West End wards we are making a start.
The UrbanFox chargepoint is a look into the future of our streetscape and works towards many of the best practice design standards for enhancing the public realm
