Knight Frank Investment Management is partnering with EV charging company Mer to install charge points at more than 100 client-owned sites in the United Kingdom.
Karl Anders, Mer UK managing director, explains: “Following an in-depth tender process, it is a privilege to become the exclusive EV charging partner for a leading real estate investment manager. KFIM’s decision to partner with Mer highlights its proactive commitment to providing innovative property solutions as we move into the new electric era.”
… [I]t was important that we partnered with an experienced charge point operator who understands the complex needs of our portfolio of sites.
Matt Simmonds from Knight Frank Investment Management (KFIM), says: “After recognising that reliable and future-fit EV charging infrastructure is becoming an increasingly in-demand asset of commercial properties, it was important that we partnered with an experienced charge point operator who understands the complex needs of our portfolio of sites.
“Mer’s charge points will help us provide an essential service to our tenants and visitors, and we are looking forward to working with Mer in the roll out of charging infrastructure in the coming months.”
Installation at 14 KFIM client sites is expected to begin later this year, with six charging bays offering ultra rapid charging at each location. Mer will aim to install approximately 450 sockets across the property manager’s UK portfolio, combining rapid and ultra-rapid charge points which are being made available for public use.
Mer is owned and operated by Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy.
