Electric vehicle charging
We are continuing to explore ways of facilitating the deployment and uptake of electric vehicles (EV) within the city, in support of the switch from older, more polluting vehicles to low emission vehicles for Derby’s residents, visitors and businesses. EVs have clear air quality benefits when compared with internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEV), in that they produce zero tailpipe emissions.
Park with pride and save money
Do you use the Park and Ride service at Pride Park? You can purchase your season ticket for the Park and Ride facility and make use of the 8 D2N2 EV charging points. With heavily discounted costs, you can park for as little as £2.07 per day with our 12 month season ticket. If you are a business, take advantage of our bulk purchase discount.
Please note, the season tickets do not include the cost of your bus journey.
Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
The expected rapid increase in adoption of EVs, in line with the Government’s Road to Zero Strategy, must be coupled with deployment of supporting infrastructure.
We are continuing to seek ways to support the expansion of the charging infrastructure coverage in Derby in order to enable Derby residents, visitors and those commuting to Derby to make the switch from petrol and diesel vehicles to Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) alternatives. The take up of EVs is expected to increase rapidly within the coming years.
We have implemented and facilitated the implementation of various charging points throughout the city. This has included:
- a network of chargers in various city centre car parks. Working in partnership with other local authorities the Go Ultra Low programme has developing a charging network across the region for local citizens and visitors to the city. This has resulted in around 230 new public charge points at various locations in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby and Derbyshire.
- 37 D2N2 charge points were implemented in Derby City Council car park sites. The charge points comprise 36 fast chargers and 1 rapid.
