ubitricity has announced that it has successfully installed more than 7,000 EV charge points in the UK.
This milestone comes off the back of a number of recent contract awards including the Cities of Westminster and Liverpool, North Lincolnshire and West Suffolk.
These developments are all part of a wider effort to bring more publicly available EV charging to the millions of UK drivers without private parking and to help local authorities establish accessible charging networks quickly and efficiently using existing infrastructure.
ubitricity, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell, and an electric vehicle charge point operator based in London, Berlin, and Paris, is one of the leading providers of innovative charging solutions for electric vehicles. Over the past six years, ubitricity has helped enable the transition to Evs in the UK by converting existing lampposts into charging points for electric vehicles in residential areas. ubitricity is also deploying fast and rapid charging points for councils and local authorities in easily accessible areas such as council car parks and leisure centres.
“The UK EV market has seen rapid growth, and the provision of convenient and accessible charging is a key component in enabling the shift away from internal combustion engine vehicles,” said Toby Butler, Managing Director at ubitricity.
“As the UK’s largest public EV charge point operator, we’re proud of our role in helping ensure that EV owners can drive with confidence, knowing that a convenient, reliable charge will be close at hand. With more than 7,000 charge points now live, and our recent string of high-profile contract wins, we are proud to support local authorities’ roll out of EV charging infrastructure and assist them in meeting their goals to reduce emissions and improve their carbon footprint”.
ubitricity will also support local authorities with financing, through various funding schemes, to install more on-street chargers in towns and cities across the UK.
