Mer, European EV charging company, backed by Statkraft, Europe’s largest renewable energy generator.
Mer, a European electric vehicle (EV) charging company, aim to install EV charge points across more than 100 of Knight Frank Investment Management’s (KFIM) sites in the UK.
Karl Anders, Managing Director at Mer UK said, “Following an in-depth tender process, it is a privilege to become the exclusive EV charging partner for a leading real estate investment manager. KFIM’s decision to partner with Mer highlights its proactive commitment to providing innovative property solutions as we move into the new electric era.”
Mer will aim to install approximately 450 sockets across the company’s UK-wide portfolio, with a mixture of rapid and ultra-rapid charge points available for public use.
Matt Simmonds at KFIM said, “After recognising that reliable and future-fit EV charging infrastructure is becoming an increasingly in-demand asset of commercial properties, it was important that we partnered with an experienced charge point operator who understands the complex needs of our portfolio of sites. Mer’s charge points will help us provide an essential service to our tenants and visitors, and we are looking forward to working with Mer in the roll out of charging infrastructure in the coming months.”
Mer will begin in 2023 with 14 of KFIM client sites, which will each have six charging bays offering ultra rapid charging.
The built environment is accountable for 38% of global energy related greenhouse gas emissions. Establishing an EV charging network across its client portfolio aligns with KFIM’s commitment to creating a more sustainable future within the real estate industry. Its partnership with Mer will support KFIM’s client targets in achieving net-zero carbon emissions.
