Changing thinking and investment in EV infrastructure

Back in 2020, Connected Kerb had just formed with a new proposition for on-street EV charging. To open their market, we needed to shift local authority focus from town centre fast-charging towards on-street residential charging.

  • Conducted a survey on how EV drivers prefer to charge their cars, building evidence that people were more likely to buy an EV if they had overnight charging near their home.
  • This gave us a clear, evidenced message that deploying residential and workplace charging was critical to increasing EV uptake, especially for those without a driveway.
  • This data, alongside interviews with EV experts, was used to create the report Electric Vehicles: Moving from early adopters to mainstream buyers.
  • Report launched to local authorities via sales outreach, trade media, and webinars.

  • Trade coverage including: The Engineer, New Civil Engineer, Fleet World, Connected Car, Power Engineering International, Smart Energy, Current News, and Energy Live.
  • Two webinars attracted over 100 Local Authority decision makers.
  • 170 Local Authority downloads in first month.
  • 100s of existing prospects reengaged through direct outreach.
  • Report insights atomised for long-term social media thought leadership, building the brand's reputation as a trusted expert.
  • The data and recommendations form a critical part of Connected Kerb’s sales narrative and underpin their many speaking opportunities.
  • Since the launch, there has been a significant shift in industry thinking and investment approaches, and Connected Kerb has grown rapidly to become one of EV charging's key players.

Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said:

“We are looking for government and businesses to make high-value, long-term investments in our charging infrastructure. These decisions involve considerable thought." 

"This project gave us an evidence-backed narrative which highlighted the need for our solution. The report itself – and the ideas and data within it – give us credible assets that will deliver long-term value across multiple sales and marketing channels.”
