Electric Vehicle Charge Point
CAT has an Electric Vehicle (EV) public charging station for visitors to use.
A 32 amp socket (for a plug with three round pins) allows fast charging, typically up to 4 hours. Please bring your own charging cables.
The facility is free of charge for the visitors to CAT.
To ensure that the charge point is available for you to use, please book in advance by calling us on 01654 705950.
The charging station was completed with support from Zero Carbon World who delivers sustainable solutions and practical projects.
Electric vehicles and zero carbon
The transport sector currently accounts for around 25% of UK greenhouse gas emissions, including the UK’s share of international aviation and shipping. Cars and vans are responsible for around half of all transport energy use. Reducing the number of cars on the road by walking, cycling, using public transport and car-sharing is an important part of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, and switching to electric vehicles will also help, particularly when these are charged using electricity from renewable energy sources. For more information, please see CAT's Zero Carbon Britain research.
At CAT about 20% of our electricity is generated on-site from our own renewable sources topped up from the grid sourced through 100% renewable electricity from Good Energy. So the electricity charging your car will be sourced from renewable energy.
