Dynamo: Kenneth Green


EV specialist sparks UK transformation


A prominent electric vehicle charging business is set to capitalise on a growing market after securing a number of strategic partnerships in 2020. Adi Vehicle Charging Solutions


(VCS) – part of the Birmingham- based adi Group – was only launched at the beginning of the year but is already making huge inroads into the world of electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure. In June, the business propelled


forward its partnership with EV charging provider Franklin Energy, assuming responsibility to deliver a ‘Recharge Network’ for Merseytravel across the Merseyside and Liverpool City region. This consisted of 52 existing


public charge points across 21 sites within Merseyside, setting the scene for rapid growth. And now in conjunction with


Franklin Energy, Adi VCS has extended its reach across a further


21 sites in the UK, as part of a far- reaching infrastructure roll-out project for leading national car park operators Q-Park. Adi’s Kenneth Green said: “What


we’ve found is that EV demand is really growing as anticipated. “You already had a fledgling


market, and with the announcement last month of the new diesel and petrol car ban from 2030, you have an industry that has been really solidified as the way forward. “As infrastructure specialists,


we’ve been keeping a watchful eye, and to this end we’ve been completing projects across the UK and Ireland, with strategic partnerships helping extend our scale and reach to be one of the leading specialists in the market.” “It’s an exciting period, and one


which we look forward to progressing throughout 2021 and beyond.”


DfT HQ for the second city


The Government’s plans to establish a second Department for Transport headquarters in Birmingham has been described by business leaders as ‘great news’ for the city. The Birmingham headquarters will include ministerial offices, with


ministers expected to spend a significant amount of time at their new premises. The plans, which also include proposals for Department for Transport offices in Leeds to be established, are part of the government’s commitment to diversifying the civil service, and a drive to move 22,000 civil services jobs out of London by 2030. More than 650 roles will be created in the cities by 2025, the


government has claimed. Recruitment for roles at the new offices in Birmingham and Leeds has already started. Chamber head of policy Raj Kandola said that having ministers based


in Birmingham would help them appreciate how the city has transformed over the last decade. He said: “This is great news for our city. Having ministers based in Birmingham will help them appreciate first hand the fabulous transformation the city has undergone.”
