Empowering our customers

At Surrey Research Park we are passionate about sustainability. We lead by example, empowering our customers to make a difference individually and as part of a collective and we’re always learning and innovating.

From solar powered EV charging, to sustainable buildings and nurturing green spaces, we’re embedding sustainability into our every day.

3ti, the team behind the UK’s largest solar car parks, has launched Papilio3, a pop-up mini solar car park at Surrey Technology Centre.

The unit provides up to 12 EV charge points, designed to expand EV infrastructure rapidly and provide an effective workplace charging experience for EV drivers.
