We are living in fast changing times. Transport is at the centre of this change as technological advancements drive vehicle electrification and autonomy, potentially revolutionising the way we travel and live our lives. Government has put the UK at the forefront of this shift not least by identifying this as a key area of our industrial strategy.
The delivery of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the UK has the potential to generate significant revenue return to the Exchequer, create significant public value and establish a global template, placing British iconography at the heart of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
PBA, now part of Stantec, has worked with international architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, to develop a Green Paper that sets out recommendations for Government to capitalise on the provision of a new social infrastructure model across the UK.
We have an established reputation for identifying and developing opportunities and in this Paper, we explore the unique prospect for Government to merge the long-term decarbonisation of road infrastructure with a market mechanism that gives investors stability and users an equitable price guarantee.
The UK’s industrial heritage has delivered globally recognised icons for over 200 years. Now the UK has the chance to again be at the forefront of innovation and design, engineering a Society Service Station that establishes a global design standard and ensures everyone has access to electric vehicle charging points.
