Zest appointed to NHS Framework for EV infrastructure

Zest, one of the UK’s fastest growing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging networks and a certified B Corporation has been named as an approved supplier on the NHS Sustainable Transport and Infrastructure Framework Agreement for electric vehicle charging solutions.

Launched in November 2023, this NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) framework agreement provides a quick, simple, and compliant procurement route to market for sustainable Transport and Infrastructure solutions for the NHS and the wider public sector. The experience, expertise and quality commitment of suppliers is assessed during the tender evaluation, with performance and user satisfaction monitored on an ongoing basis.

Leeds-based Zest provides and operates EV charging infrastructure for the commercial real estate sector and for local authorities across the country. The company has secured a place on Lot 5 of the framework – Electric vehicle charging solutions – which covers the planning and implementation of EV charging solutions and infrastructure, including the supply, installation, maintenance and back-office systems, grid upgrades, induction, solar panel/PV, and battery storage. It also includes the option of consultancy for the EV charging infrastructure fund.

Today, Zest is delivering ground-breaking public sector EV projects, working with Hackney to provide the densest charging network in the UK, and with Transport for London to provide comprehensive rapid charging on the TfL road network. The company is also engaged with NHS trusts, primary healthcare groups and provides fleet services for blue-light services.

Robin Heap, Zest CEO commented: “More than any other organisation in the UK, the NHS has the potential to lead the transition to EV by harnessing the sheer abundance of its car parks and fleets. This framework enables Zest to support the NHS and wider public sector in lowering their carbon output, improving local air quality and helping to make the EV transition easier for everyone.”
