Evyve, which has a growing network mainly based in the car park of Greene King pubs, is aiming to become the UK’s largest fast charging firm by 2030 after agreeing a deal for up to 10,000 charge points.
The British firm is owned by property regeneration firm Peel L&P, which owns a range of retail parks across the UK. Evyve has secured a supply achievement for DC fast charging manufacturer Tritium to become its ‘preferred technology partner’.
While the initial order is for 350 of Tritium’s fast chargers as part of a £25 million investment in the next two years, Evyve has said it plans to install 10,000 charging stations by 2030. These will be located at Peel-owned retail parks, Greene King pubs and hotels.
Evyve has so far installed 60 Tritium chargers, which include 75kW and 150kW units. Company boss James Moat said the firm was “focused on providing a seamless and reliable customer experience”, adding the Tritium deal would provide the firm “with the foundations to support the UK’s transition to electric vehicles today and 20 years from now”.
The news is the second big deal Tritium has secured in recent weeks. It recently agreed the largest deal in company history to supply BP with fast chargers for us in the UK, Europe, the US and Australia.
