CORBY - EV CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE
BMS believe that each car should be able to support itself with instant energy exchanges, until such times as low-cost service facilities such as the proposed Bluebird™ Smart City 3.6 megawatt service station comes online.
The nearby track at Rockingham is a venue for EV racing.

Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are responsible for designing the EU investment strategies for the delivery of EU funding in England for 2014-2020.

What are LEPs?
LEPs are locally-owned partnerships between the public sector (local authorities) and private sector (businesses).
There are 39 LEP’s in England – see map - and they determine local economic priorities and undertake activities to promote economic growth and create local jobs.
LEPs come in different sizes and structures – some LEP’s have special interest groups, advisory panels, and the make-up of Boards differ in terms of public and private-sector and representatives from higher education/Universities.
What role do they have in EU funding?
Lord Heseltine’s report on growth made several recommendations on how the UK should pursue growth particularly around the mobilisation of the local economy including making the LEPs the principle delivery vehicle for the future of EU funding.
The government’s guidance sets out the information that should be included in the strategies and the criteria that will be used by Government to evaluate them.
The Local Enterprise Partnerships were asked to send their first draft of European Strategic and Investment Fund (ESIF) plans by 07 October 2013. Following government feedback, LEPs were asked to send their final ESIF plans for approval. The plans will be finalised by July 2014.
The map above shows where the first public charging points in and around Corby are to be located. See Project Devonshire, for a more comprehensive system, to include load leveling.
