Network operator ChargePoint is expanding into the European market by partnering with InstaVolt to deploy over 200 ChargePoint rapid charge systems in the UK.
ChargePoint’s Express Plus solutions will be installed by InstaVolt close to popular routes across the UK, enabling drivers to charge their vehicles during long journeys.
“InstaVolt has raised millions to install a DC rapid charge network countrywide across the UK,” said ChargePoint VP Simon Lonsdale. “InstaVolt is well positioned to help expand EV charging in the UK.”
Express Plus is a modular charging platform designed to scale as demand grows.
“We own, install and maintain rapid charging units all over the country, giving landowners the opportunity to earn a rental income by housing them, and giving EV drivers access to the fastest charging available,” said Tim Payne, CEO at InstaVolt. “ChargePoint’s charging units are future-proofed so the units can be configured to meet the precise requirements of any site and can be scaled incrementally as demand for higher-rate charging increases. This is particularly important as EV manufacturers begin to bring out new models with increased battery capacity.”
