POD Point Gets More Recognition For EV Charging Leadership

pod-point-chargerThe UK-based electric vehicle changing point firm POD Point has been named as one of the finalists in the Lloyds Bank Business Awards — specifically being nominated for the Grichan Partnership Sustainable Business Award — according to an email sent to CleanTechnica and EV Obsession.

The nomination is the only nominate related to electric vehicles (EV) in this year’s candidate list. The award winner will be selected based on “evidence of a sustainable approach which improves commercial performance, competitiveness, customer perception, staff engagement and continued financial strength.”

Pod Point NewAs a bit of an overview of POD Point’s recent success (25,000 of the firm’s charging points/customers have now been installed/gained), here are some factoids that you may find interesting that were exclusively sent our way:

  • During the last 28 days, usage of POD Point charging points has curtailed 74,859 kilograms of CO2 emissions. Which is the equivalent of:
    * 179,411 miles driven in a typical internal combustion engine (ICE) car
    * 31,884 liters of petrol burned
    * The total energy consumption of 95 typical homes for a whole year
    * 173 barrels of oil used
    * The amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by 1,940 tree seedlings grown over 10 years
  • Also, during the last 20 days, POD Point charging points have provided 133,417 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity. Which is the equivalent of:
    * Charging a typical electric car from zero to full 5,559 times (based on 24 kWh Nissan LEAF)
    * The typical amount of electricity generated by one wind turbine over 9 days
    * Boiling a kettle constantly for over 5 years
    * Watching TV constantly for over 2 years

Not bad, eh? Though the comparison with watching TV constantly for 2 years is a bit strange.
