The EV Network (EVN) and bp pulse are to expand provision of ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across the UK.

 They have signed an agreement to roll out ‘hubs’ of between six and 12 chargers, as well as next-generation ‘e-forecourts’ with up to 24 ultra-fast chargers (300KW), with onsite solar PV and battery storage systems. EVN received £50m investment from SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust, which has first refusal to provide an additional £150m for EVN to develop a further 400 EV charging sites. Construction is expected to start immediately, and a number of sites should be operational by the end of 2021.
