EV charging network InstaVolt has gone live with its 1,000th UK charger, part of the expansion of the Stroud Park charging hub location on the M40 near Banbury, Oxfordshire.
Responding to industry demand and in line with PAS1899 BSI standards for accessible charge points, the Stroud Park site features some fully accessible charging bays, as part of InstaVolt’s commitment to provide accessible charging at new site locations.
The new Stroud Park expansion will be open and available to the public next week, a year on from EQT Infrastructure’s acquisition of InstaVolt.
In the last year InstaVolt has grown its network by 45% and the company is on track to install 10,000 rapid chargers in the UK by 2032.
Its overseas expansion is also progressing with work commencing on its first public charging hub in Iceland – at the Aðaltorg Courtyard Marriott hotel situated at Keflavík Airport.
As well as continuing to develop sites with its corporate partners including Costa Coffee, McDonald’s and EH Booths supermarkets, InstaVolt is also developing several new hubs at strategically chosen locations across the country.
Adrian Keen, Chief Executive Officer at InstaVolt, said, “It’s a huge accomplishment to energise our 1,000th UK charger.
“Improving public charging infrastructure across the country is key for consumers to feel confident enough to make the switch to electric vehicles.
“Over the next ten years, we’ll continue to strive towards our goal of energising 10,000 rapid EV chargers by 2032, prioritising the hub model which will have reliability and accessibility at its core.”
