About Leicester College

Leicester College is one of the largest colleges in the UK with over 21,000 students and staff. Based in Leicestershire, they have three campuses and are one of the county’s top facilities for further and higher education, as well as technical and technical courses, training and qualifications.

The Objective

Leicester College has signed up to the ‘Race to Zero’ for universities and colleges, committing to becoming a net-zero organisation by 2030. They have put in place a sustainability roadmap which provides a framework for reaching net-zero emissions, embedding sustainability into their future plans and promoting a commitment to combat climate change among their staff, students and stakeholders.

As part of this framework, Leicester College wanted to provide EV charging solutions for their staff, visitors, students and the college’s own electric vehicles to future-proof their sites and reach their sustainability goals across their four campuses: Abbey Park Campus, Freemen’s Park Campus and St Margaret’s Campus.

The Project

We installed 10 Easee Charge, 22kW charge points across the three campus car parks. Sites include both outdoor and underground car parks and we wall-mounted the charge points, ensuring neat and tidy cabling. For one of the sites, it was required to mount the charge points onto a fence which the team easily navigated. We also supplied all the necessary signage, explaining how to use the charge points and how to pay for the charging session.

Leicester College uses our dedicated eFaraday platform to manage all its charge points across all campuses. Powered by iEquos software, the cloud-based platform allows the college to manage individual charge points and view their availability, set up new tariffs, opening times and payment terms, as well as pull reports on their carbon footprint and energy usage.

We monitor all of Leicester College’s EV charge points using our dedicated ARC which is manned by in-person monitoring operatives. Monitoring is carried out remotely 24/7, 365 days a year to ensure minimal downtime and immediate response to any issues or faults.

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