Gridserve rolls-out new charging hubs

Four new electric charging hubs have been opened by Gridserve last month as the firm accelerates its roll-out of high power chargers.

The move, which follows more than 100 high power chargers being installed in 2022, will see the 350kW charge points located at some of the UK’s busiest highways. New sites include eight at Solstice Park on the A303, six on the M23 at Pease Pottage and a further 12 on the M4 Reading Westbound. Additionally, six chargers have been placed on the M40 Cherwell Valley to boost the network at this location.

The 32 new chargers means the total network from the firm is now 173 at 16 electric “super hubs” and two electric forecourts. There are now chargers at 169 locations, delivering 10 million miles of electric transportation capacity to EVs each month.

All of the company’s chargers feature both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, accept contactless payment and provide real-time status updates to a number of EV charging maps.

Toddington Harper, CEO of Gridserve, said: “We are thrilled to be building on the great progress we made in 2022 with four new Electric Super Hub locations opening in January alone.

“As the demand for electric vehicles and charging increases, it is vital we continue this pace to roll out the installation of High Power chargers to support EV drivers and those making the switch to electric. We look forward to continuing our vast expansion throughout the rest of 2023.”
