Talking solar on the podcast with EV News Daily
The popularity of podcasts continues to rise, with it said that almost a quarter of British adults will have listened to a podcast in the last month.* It’s a statistic that’s certainly true for the team at FlexiSolar – and that’s because we’ve been featured in our first one!
EV News Daily broadcasts a daily podcast about electric cars, hybrids and sustainable transport, but were also keen to look at everything needed to make EV become truly mainstream. In their special report entitled “How To Turn A Car Park Into A Power Station”, EV News Daily spoke to Business Development Director Adam Goves to get the low down on our recent announcement with Bentley Motors.
FlexiSolar are currently constructing a large scale commercial carport at Bentley’s Crewe manufacturing headquarters; which will be the UK’s largest when complete, at 2.7MW. We’ll be fixing 10,000 panels to frames which will shelter almost 1,400 car parking spaces at the site.
With electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure, battery energy storage and renewable energy being in the public mindset, the project news has led to significant interest across the sector and more widely. In the 8 minute podcast, Adam speaks to Martyn Lee to offer insights into the project, to highlight how forward thinking Bentley has been with this investment, and to reiterate the importance of battery storage and vehicle to grid technology.
