Utility EDF acquires EV charging company Pod Point

Low-carbon energy provider EDF has acquired Pod Point, an EV charging company. Pod Point has rolled out 62,000 charging points in the UK and 6,600 in Norway.

The acquisition follows EDF’s acquisition last year of Pivot Power, which specializes in grid-scale batteries and provides high-voltage power for EV charge points.

Simone Rossi, UK CEO of EDF, said, “With the addition of charge points, we can help our customers to reduce their carbon footprints and benefit from lower fuel costs by going electric. The additional electricity demand from EVs will require urgent investment in low-carbon generation from renewables and nuclear.”
