New EV charging point announced for those without driveways
Named The Chameleon, the charge point is a bollard-style charger designed and built in the UK and constructed from recycled steel. The Chameleon supports technologies such as 5G, IoT and air quality sensors, and like the other Connected Kerb charging points, features a modular design with many of the key components lying beneath the ground.
This means that the charging points can be installed before EV demand grows and the need for extensive and expensive future groundworks and maintenance.

Each one stands just under one metre tall with its creators stating that the charge point is wheelchair accessible and installing one won’t require the need for planning permission from the local council.
It’s also claimed to be one of the lowest impact and smallest dual charger solutions for public on-street charging in the market.
It’s part of Connected Kerb’s £1.9billion plan to roll out 190,000 EV charge points across the UK, often in areas traditionally overlooked by install schemes. For example, schemes are being launched in Lambeth and in coordination with parish councils in Kent.
“We’re committed to facilitating the widespread transition to electric vehicles for users who cannot charge their vehicle at home,” says Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb.
“Our latest charger design - the Chameleon – is a real game-changer in the EV infrastructure market. To pack so much technology into a small post with a dual-socket is no mean feat and the solution is a credit to the product & innovation of the Connected Kerb team." Pateman-Jones continued.
