French firm Vinci subsidiary Vinci Energies UK has partnered with Elektromotive to install what they claim will be the world’s first fully-connected recharging infrastructure for pure electric and plug-in electric hybrid vehicles.

The infrastructure, which will be set up in the UK, will be designed to allow charging of electric vehicles whenever they are stationary at home, in public car parks, at the kerbside and at the workplace.

Elektromotive, developer of the Elektrobay charging station, will offer its technological expertise to develop recharging facilities and Vinci will handle the project’s design, implementation and operation.
