Believ joins new framework to accelerate EV infrastructure delivery in the North East

Charge point operator Believ is partnering with NEPO to help accelerate the development of electric vehicle (EV) charge point infrastructure in the North East and across the UK.

NEPO’s EV Charging Infrastructure solution is available to all local authorities and public sector organisations. Believ is one of eight suppliers on the framework to support with operation and maintenance.

NEPO will work with the Mayoral Combined Authorities and local councils to ensure the new framework agreement delivers the wider economic and environmental ambitions required. It will partner with suppliers to develop social value commitments that further reduce carbon emissions, improve skills and support local communities.

Guy Bartlett, CEO, Believ says: “We’re delighted to partner with NEPO to help accelerate the roll-out of much needed charging infrastructure specifically in underserved regions across the UK and especially in the North East. If we are to fulfil the national Government’s ambitions for net-zero then it must be a collective effort, leaving no-one behind.”

Steven Sinclair, procurement and commercial director at NEPO, said: “We’re delighted to introduce a groundbreaking solution for the public sector to deliver the EV charging infrastructure needed across the North East and UK. By working with NEPO Member Authorities and Transport North East, our framework offers contracting authorities unparalleled access to flexible EV charging solutions. This not only empowers local authorities and the wider public sector to meet their environmental commitments but also propels the nation towards a net-zero future.”
