About Askham Bryan College

Askham Bryan College is one of the top specialist land-based colleges in the UK. Based in Yorkshire, they provide outstanding agricultural and animal science courses across 5 campuses in the North of England.

The Objective

Askham Bryan College has developed a strong sustainability and climate action strategy for the coming years making a pledge to be a net-zero organisation. As part of this, they have switched their main utility supply to renewable energy and are transitioning 100% of their college fleet to EVs.

To support their new ‘green fleet’, as well as accommodate students, employees and visitors who drive EVs, Askham Bryan College wanted an EV solution that helped future-proof their site and help them achieve their sustainability goals, whilst providing the options for public and workplace EV charging opportunities. 

The Project

We installed 12 Easee One, 22kW charge points in the college’s York campus car park, each with its own dedicated EV charging parking bay. The Easee charge points were double-mounted onto purpose-built posts for a neat and tidy installation. We installed a protective barrier in front of each post for added protection of the charge points, as well as wheel stops and full painting of the designated bays. We also supplied all signage to direct EV drivers on how to use the charge points and pay for their session.

Askham Bryan College uses our dedicated eFaraday platform to manage and control its charge point system. Powered by iEquos software, it allows them to easily set up custom tariffs for visitors, students and staff, payment terms and new users. They are also able to view their energy usage, carbon footprint and full availability and charging status of each charge point.

Every EV charge point on the site is remotely monitored by us 24/7, via a dedicated ARC manned by monitoring operatives. This minimises charge point downtime and instantly identifies any issues in real-time, with the ability for them to be resolved remotely, when possible.

We plant a tree for every EV charge point we install. Because there's no planet B.
