Good Energy becomes business EV charging infrastructure provider


Renewable power firm Good Energy has launched a business-to-business electric vehicles charging division called One Point.

Destination and workplace charging will become increasingly important as EV penetration increases. Good Energy, which earlier this year outlined plans to increase B2B market activity, said that presents an opportunity to businesses.

The company aims to deliver end-to-end services for firms seeking to switch fleets to EVs or install charging infrastructure for staff, customers or both.

As such, it has struck partnerships with RAW Infrastructure and SWARCO as installers, which Tim Wynn-Jones, head of energy solutions, said will deliver “gold standard” reliability.

He advised businesses considering charging infrastructure to move quickly to secure grid capacity – a key aspect of EV infrastructure – and to “get ahead of the competition.”

One Point’s first installation is at the Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall, where chargepoints use load balancing technology to reduce adding to grid constraints. The hotel’s chief executive, Will Ashworth, said it wanted to “get ahead of the curve” as EV chargers become “the next hygiene factor for hotels”.

Good Energy CEO, Juliet Davenport said bundling together chargers with clean power enables businesses to take another step towards net zero by helping to decarbonise transport.
