Mitie Wins Job Centre EV Charging Contract
10 January 2023
 

The Department for Work and Pensions has awarded Mitie a contract to install 250 new electric vehicle charging points at job centres across the UK.

The £4.3 million contract means Mitie will roll out electric vehicle charging infrastructure at more than 120 job centres, to support the Department for Work and Pensions’ (DWP) mission to reach its net-zero targets and achieve a fully electric fleet by 2030. 

The deal covers the design, installation and maintenance of the EO EV charging points.

 

Wider Facilities Management Contract With Department for Work and Pensions

 

Mitie already works with the DWP, delivering facilities management services including engineering, maintenance, cleaning services and asset safety checks.  As part of this ongoing five-year relationship, Mitie has also worked closely with DWP’s sustainability team on areas such as waste, biodiversity, decarbonisation and solar power.

The contract is Mitie’s second large-scale EV infrastructure rollout for the public sector, following a £4.5 million contract to install and maintain charge points for the Environment Agency, a delivery body of the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

Pradyumna Pandit, Managing Director, Sustainability and Energy Services, Mitie said: “Getting workplace car parks ready and welcoming with charging facilities is critical for the transition to an electric future. We are proud to partner with DWP as they lead the way in demonstrating their commitment to net zero with EV-ready sites."
