Car using electric vehicle charger hit installation milestone of 2000 public EV charge points

Electric vehicle charging provider has announced that it has, today, installed its 2000th lamppost charger, with an upturn in the number of installations recently to meet the need of motorists.

With the installation in Southwark, the number of chargers installed in the last four weeks has risen to 500 to ensure that the needs of motorists who are unable to charge on their driveways or at their homes are met., a British owned and operated company, is responsible for the construction and development of its own charge points and software, allowing them to offer local councils the opportunity to make money that can be reinvested into other services. The company also offers charging solutions in urban, suburban and areas, helping to reduce potential regional charging inequalities.

Richard Stobart, Founder and CEO of, said:

“Our ambition is to deliver the most reliable near-home charging service at the lowest cost to both drivers and councils. We believe our approach is a solution to what we call the ‘Driveway Divide.’

“’Driveway Divide’ is the barrier that over 6.6 million UK homes face because they lack off-street parking and cannot charge at home. The UK Government forecasts that around 30% of the 10 million EVs expected in 2030 will need on-street charging meaning that as many as 490,000 on-street chargers will be required.

As EV sales continue to boom, the pact of installation of EV charge points needs to accelerate too. The installation of our 2000th public charge point – 500 of them in just four week – shows the vital role that lamppost charging can play in rapidly scaling up the UK’s EV charging infrastructure ”
