Man charging car at Be.EV rapid charger

EV charging projects pipeline

Updated 3 August 2021

We have ambitious plans to expand the publicly owned electric vehicle charging network. Here’s the latest state of play of charging point projects on the ground and future plans and funding bids.

Dedicated Be.EV taxi and private hire charging points

We're introducing 30 rapid charging points across Greater Manchester dedicated only for EV private hire (PHV) and hackney drivers, using £2.4m of government funding, with plans progressing for a further 30 rapid chargers. The first rapid charger available to all Greater Manchester EV hackney cabs and PHVs is currently scheduled to go live early in 2022, with all 60 chargers due to be installed by early 2023.

eHUBS

In partnership with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, in autumn 2021 we’ll be launching six fast chargers in Manchester and Bury for use by eCar Club members. It’s part of an eHUBS pilot funded by Interreg North-West Europe, offering affordable and easy ways to hire one of 12 electric cars and 25 eCargo bikes for as little as half an hour.

Park and Ride

We’re building new Park and Ride sites at Whitefield, Walkden and Radcliffe, making it easier for drivers to park up and continue their journey on public transport. As they open from late 2021 and through 2022, each new car park will have two fast Be.EV charging points.

Community charging hubs

We’re planning to submit a bid to the government’s On-Street Residential Charge Point Scheme for a number of community charger hubs. These would be in areas where charging at home is difficult for residents. If our bid is successful, the community hubs would be launched by 2023.
