Our community vehicle charge points

We want to provide an EV charging infrastructure, which will power electric community car schemes with lower carbon emissions and lower cost.

“I had a successful charge up at Abergavenny both on my way to Green Man festival on Thursday, and then again on Monday on my way home.

Thanks for making the process so easy and for all the good work you are doing in improving the charging network in the area.”

– Charge point user, August 2019

With permission from our local councils, we have installed vehicle charge points at places we hope will encourage more business and tourism, to benefit the local economy.

The need to switch to cleaner transport is an important response to the climate emergency declarationsElectric Vehicles (EVs) are cheaper to run, less polluting and sales are increasing.

Works with other Apps

Our public charge points can be found on other apps – not just Charge Assist.

For the community

Money made from our chargers go to supporting local community organisations, being re-invested into new projects that benefit everyone.

Supporting EV drivers

We understand that not everyone can install a vehicle charge point at home. We want our EVCPs to be accessible for anyone needing to charge.

Fully Charged

In 2018, funding from the Vale of Usk LAG allowed Gwent Energy CIC to work closely with Monmouthshire County Council to install free vehicle charging units for twenty businesses in the Vale of Usk.

During the project, three points became clear:


Hotels and accommodation venues benefitted from offering the service particularly if they were near to trunk roads or large towns (E.g Newport).


Venues that advertised the service received more business.


Location of the EVCP (Electric Vehicle Charge Point) with good access to the charge point and near to main roads were used the most.
