PoGo Charge accelerates ultra-rapid charging 

Electric vehicle (EV) charge point operator PoGo celebrated its first year with new partnerships and hires as well as 248 EV charging points in the previous quarter. 

The firm has grown its commercial and operations teams by 90% to 44 full time staff and announced partnerships with the deployment of more than 1,000 ultra-rapid charging points by the end of the year. 

It puts PoGo on track to building a network of 4,000 ultra-rapid charging points by 2027. 

A deal with LCP saw the firm install 658 ultra-rapid DC charging points at 89 strategic retail developments in the UK and a further contract with Kew Green Hotels to install 400 ultra-rapid charging points at 40 new EV charging hubs at hotel brands including Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, voco and Courtyard by Marriott.

It also became a Zapmap Live date partner and went live on the Octopus Electroverse, as well as Paua for fleet drivers. 

In addition, it has also become a ChargeSafe Certified partner, further solidifying its commitment to providing safe and reliable charging solutions.

Stuart Douglas, Managing Director of PoGo Charge, said: “The focus for 2024 will be on the continued expansion of the network, leveraging data insights from live sites to enhance our offering and further develop our site evaluation models,” he says.  

“We will also be further developing our energy partnerships and evolving a driver-focused strategy set to enhance the overall customer experience and set new benchmarks for accessibility.” 

Douglas added that skills and agility of the commercial and operations teams means they are now deploying EV charging faster than ever: 

He added: “We have an opportunity to deliver something really special in the next 12 months and beyond. We have already deployed 130 ultra-rapid EV charging points in the first two months of 2024,” he says, “which is a fantastic place from which to grow.”
