Welsh minister opens new Clenergy EV offices
Welsh Minister for the Economy, Vaughan Gething, has opened Clenergy EV’s new offices as the firm accelerates its growth.
The firm, which has been supporting EV charge point software since 2020, also invited representatives from Swansea Council, Carmarthenshire County Council, Vale of Glamorgan Council and the Dragon Charging Network to highlight the work across Wales on the EV ecosystem and local net-zero commitments.
Clenergy EV has grown rapidly in the past 3 years and now works with 150 organisations across the UK. More than 200,000 charge point transactions have been recorded on the Clenergy EV system to-date, the company claims, saving over 2,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions in the year 2022 for both members of the public and large scale organisations.
Situated in Sony UK Technology Centre’s Business Incubation Centre, the new offices will offer testing for testing for new technologies and EV drivers. The company raised £4m investment in their first round of funding to scale up its team and operational capacity, with a headcount of 25 staff – double the team of last year – it said.
Speaking at the opening, Gething said: “I’m delighted to have the honour to open Clenergy EV’s new offices and to learn about their exciting and innovative business. Electric vehicle charging infrastructure is critical to creating the greener Wales we all want to see and the Welsh Government is committed to this goal through our Net Zero Wales Plan.”
Will David, Clenergy EV CEO said: “We are grateful to Vaughan Gething for taking time to open our state-of-the-art offices and learn more about what we have already achieved at Clenergy EV.
“The electric vehicle revolution is happening in Wales, the UK and worldwide- and our smart charge point software and EV Driver app is enabling it for hundreds of organisations.”
