Go Ultra Low Oxford is a government-funded project which provides on-street electric car charging solutions for residents who are considering buying an electric vehicle or own an electric vehicle and need access to electric charging points to charge their vehicles but have no driveway.
Phase 1 of the project is completed with a mix of trial lamppost, bollard and gulley chargers. The report on this phase by the Oxford University Transport Studies Unit is available on the Transport Studies Unit website.
Phase 2, which will deploy up to 100 further chargers, was paused due to constraints arising from the challenging business model for AC on-street charging. To resolve these, the GULO team have embarked on the creation of an Oxford Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy to map out the required charging infrastructure to meet needs for those who visit, live, or work in Oxford and identify the best mechanisms to enable viable delivery methods. GULO Phase 2 will be one of the first projects to support delivery of the Strategy’s vision.

Why Go Ultra Low?
By 2027 more people could be buying electric cars than petrol or diesel; our project will help us prepare for the future.
Go Ultra Low Oxford will help make our city:
- Cleaner: We can help to reduce air pollution by making it easier for people to drive electric cars.
- Safer: Local people will have a safe way of charging electric cars without creating trip hazards by leaving wires across pavements
- For everyone: If you choose to drive electric in the future and don’t have a driveway, our chargers could help you!
