Domestic EV charger trial seeks participants

Trojan Energy has announced a new project to develop a single, publicly accessible electric vehicle (EV) chargepoint that can be installed in the street outside a customer’s home and powered by their domestic electricity supply.
The new Aon Charger will sit below the pavement surface and be accessed by a ‘lance’ so there is no permanent clutter at the kerb when no EVs are charging. An underground cable connects the chargepoint in the street to the home consumer unit via a control box on the property
The project is funded by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) in partnership with Innovate UK (IUK). As part of the project 25 prototype units will be trialled on selected streets in the London Borough of Brent and in three districts of Oxfordshire.
The DoorSTEP trial, running from February to July 2022, is seeking to recruit two types of participants to use the technology; one will have the technology installed at their property (which will need to meet certain criteria), the other will have access to the charge points installed near to them but will not host the hardware themselves.
