Bristol Airport (IATA: BRS) has switched on the power for electric vehicle (EV) drivers with the installation of a ten-bay charging zone, along with the capability to extend in the future.

The chargepoints are located in the airport’s new multi-storey car park. The airport said the installations are the first in a programme of upgrades across various locations, which will be designed to meet the needs of customers, staff and visitors. They are also a key part of Bristol Airport’s pledge to be carbon neutral by 2025, and net-zero by 2050.

The chargepoints are supported by a smart reporting system which allows Bristol Airport to monitor a number of metrics, including carbon dioxide savings, the amount of energy delivered and the number of charge cycles per day.

As part of its carbon neutral plans the airport will also convert its own fleet to zero emissions.
