ChargePoint Services & Motor Fuel Group Expanding Nationwide Rapid Charger Network
17 January 2017 – ChargePoint Services and Motor Fuel Group (MFG), the UK’s most ambitious partnership for providing widespread electric vehicle charging across UK forecourts, has been gaining momentum with their roll-out of Rapid Chargers across the GeniePoint Network. With over 14 new state-of-the-art tri-connector rapid chargers already installed providing easy to use, reliable charging at MFG forecourts, driver usage is rising. With a further 20 being built in January, 25 programmed to follow in February and a total of 60 expected by the end of the first quarter 2018, the partnership will provide the biggest non-motorway rapid charger facility in the country.
Situated on MFG’s 439 forecourts across the UK, the chargers provide very fast(50kW), easy to use electric vehicle charging at a convenient location where drivers can take a break, purchase refreshments and resume their journey without lengthy delays or detours. Connected to ChargePoint Services’ GeniePoint Network, the chargers are constantly monitored for maximum uptime ensuring they are always available and ready to charge.
Alex Bamberg, managing director, ChargePoint Services, said. “Our GeniePoint Network is the fastest growing reliable Rapid Charger network in the UK. From commuters to taxi-drivers, fleet operators and independent owners, at key forecourt locations ChargePoint Services & MFG are providing a new critical service supporting the change to electric transport for Government initiatives, manufacturer product direction and consumer demand.”
Jeremy Clarke, MFG’s chief operating officer, said: “Our forecourt development programme includes the installation of some 200 EV charging points by the end of 2018. The programme is now building up momentum and we look forward to giving our customers increased access to this important new fuel.”
