FROM INNOVATE UK KTN – SUCCESS STORIES

Heathrow aims to replace its petrol and diesel ground vehicles with electric ones, and Zapinamo have now secured £3.1 million Innovate UK First of a Kind (FOAK) funding, with the assistance of expert subcontractors and help from KTN, who reviewed the application.  The funding is to install a unit that can charge up to twenty vehicles at a time and which, when completed, will be the largest device of its type in the world.

KTN’s Mark Matchett says, “Take-up of electric vehicles has been slower than hoped in the UK, where the government’s climate advisors have recommended a target of 9% of cars to be electric by 2020, but Zapinamo’s technology will help to tackle infrastructure problems, and enable more drivers to make the switch, helping to reduce air pollution.”
