UK Power Networks Services drives the British Army towards a greener future

17 August 2021: UK Power Networks Services is powering the British Army on the road to a greener future following the design and installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure at military sites across the south of England.

Up to 80 fully electric vehicles (EVs) will now operate across five garrisons on Salisbury Plain and Aldershot, allowing soldiers and civilian personnel to travel emission-free.

In conjunction with KBR Aspire Defence Services Ltd, who hold responsibility for the improvement, maintenance, and facilities management of soldiers’ living and working environments for the Army across Salisbury Plain and Aldershot, the introduction of EV charging infrastructure is the first step towards achieving a complete transition of the Army’s non-combat fleet of vehicles to electric by 2030.

The EV infrastructure installation is the latest activity to be delivered by Project Allenby Connaught, an £8bn initiative by the Ministry of Defence to rebuild and refurbish the living accommodation of nearly 19,000 soldiers and their families.

David Mitchell, head of client delivery at UK Power Networks Services said: “We are proud to provide our expertise to design and install electric vehicle charging infrastructure for the British Army. It’s an exciting development in our longstanding partnership with Aspire Defence to deliver modern and sustainable living quarters for service personnel.”

Aspire Defence Services Ltd Managing Director Mark Carr added that the introduction of the EV charging points was “fantastic” for the garrisons.

“There have been first-class facilities built and maintained throughout Project Allenby Connaught, and the EV installations are another great addition which will have the benefit of leaving a reduced carbon footprint.”

Since the foundation of Project Allenby Connaught, UK Power Networks Services has managed, operated and maintained the existing and new electrical infrastructure at Aldershot and Salisbury Plain garrisons.
