BT’s green street cabinets are a familiar piece of street furniture but they will soon become obsolete, so (via their start-up and digital incubation team, Etc) they are looking at an innovative way of repurposing them by turning them into EV charge points. The charging solution works by retrofitting the cabinets with a device that enables renewable energy to be shared to a charge point alongside the existing broadband service with no need to create a new power connection. It is thought that up to 60,000 of the Group’s 90,000 cabinets may be suitable for upgrades, doubling the number of public chargepoints available in the UK. The first such installation will go live in East Lothian, Scotland early in 2024
