UK: Electric vehicle Pod Centres to launch

A network of charging points and stations for electric vehicles will be launched across Greater Manchester in the autumn.

Private sector company Manchester Electric Car Company together with its partners will launch the first of 300 charge points and six stations, known as Pod Centres.

The Pod Centres will be located at Manchester Airport, Manchester city centre, the former Roxy Cinema site in Oldham, Media City UK in Salford Quays, Stockport and the Trafford Centre, with more to follow. Manchester Electric Car Company’s medium term plan is for around 25 Pod Centres across Greater Manchester.

The programme to establish the network of charging points will be delivered over a two year period until March 2013. A consortium from Greater Manchester, led by the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities, secured £3.6m through the Government funded Plugged In Places scheme.

This has been match funded by a private consortium led by Manchester Electric Car Company, which will manage and deliver the Manchester Electric programme along with its partners.
