ubitricity successfully installs 5000 EV charge points across UK
Operating in the UK for over five years, ubitricity has contributed to the switch to e-mobility in the UK by converting existing lamp posts into charging points for electric vehicles in residential areas, as part of its mission to install 50,000 electric vehicle charge points in the UK by 2025.
Now, with over 5000 public EV charge points, ubitricity operates the largest public charging network in the country.
The installation milestone comes alongside the appointment of Managing Director Toby Butler and Poppy Mills as Commercial and Strategy Director, as ubitricity prepares for rapid growth in the next year.
Toby Butler joined ubitricity as Managing Director of the UK in January 2022. Before this role, he held several management positions and most recently was focused on leading the growth of EV charging infrastructure and services as the General Manager E-Mobility Europe at Shell.
Poppy Mills was appointed as Commercial and Strategy Director in January 2022. Leading ubitricity’s acquisition by Shell in 2021, with a background in strategic investments and acquisitions in the future of mobility space, Poppy is an expert in renewables and energy solutions.
Toby Butler said: “ubitricity has a crucial role to play in the move to electric vehicles in the UK, which is a major step in achieving the low carbon transition and delivering the UK’s commitment to Net Zero by 2050.”
Poppy Mills said: “We are thrilled to be helping local councils create and execute sustainability strategies. With the UK looking to ban conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans from sale in the UK from 2030, it is essential that they prepare by investing in a vast e-mobility network.”
