Situated in the award-winning manufacturing factory, Clenergy EV’s new area will become a centre of excellence in Wales, both for testing exciting new technologies and for EV drivers themselves. Plans are already underway for the installation of multiple charging stations which will be available for staff use later in 2023.
Sharing UK TEC’s goal of providing greener technological solutions, Clenergy EV has established itself as one of the leading net-zero software companies within Wales. It is a trusted partner to 150 organisations across the UK and has already saved over 2000 tonnes of CO2 emissions in 2022 for both members of the public and large-scale organisations.
Sony UK Technology Centre Director of Professional Services, Gerald Kelly, said: “We are thrilled to be a part of this fantastic milestone for Clenergy EV. We pride ourselves on working closely with like-minded businesses, and we are extremely proud to have them as part of our Business Incubation Centre.
