We’re Be.EV, a new electric vehicle charging infrastructure provider in Greater Manchester. We've been appointed by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) to expand and maintain the city-region’s publicly owned electric vehicle (EV) charging network. Our aim is to make Greater Manchester truly EV-friendly and sustainable.
We will be replacing the existing Greater Manchester Electric Vehicle (GMEV) chargers and installing many more. These chargers will form the Be.EV network which you'll be able to use very soon. The first phase of work is the upgrade of the existing network infrastructure of almost 120 fast chargers and the installation of 24 new rapid chargers.
The Be.EV charging network, when installed and fully operational, will move from a ‘free-as-you-charge’ to a ‘pay-as-you-charge’ system, powered by renewable energy.
We are very excited to be part of your sustainable journey, but for now, some practical information.
GMEV is changing
Starting on the 22nd June 2020, we will be replacing all GMEV charge points with new fast chargers. Some existing GMEV charging points will also be removed due to low use and technical issues. Please visit TfGM GMEV website for further information
We want to make this transition as hassle-free as possible for you. Therefore you will be able to continue charging for free while we replace the GMEV network.
How can I access both GMEV and Be.EV charging infrastructure during this transition period?
You can still access any existing GMEV chargers until they are closed down for upgrading using your GMEV RFID card. You will be able to use this card until the last of the legacy GMEV chargers is replaced.
You will be able to use any Be.EV charger using any RFID card, including the current GMEV RFID card if you have one, until we replace the last of the legacy GMEV chargers.
Do I need to register with Be.EV now?
Whether you are a GMEV user or not, you don't need to register with us yet. What we ask you is that you sign up to TfGM EV newsletter by clicking the link below so we can keep you updated during this transition period. We will also email you to let you know when do you need to register with us to receive your RFID card. Don't worry, we'll give you plenty of notice so you can register in time.
