Reading Football Club has activated eight ultra-rapid EV chargers from InstaVolt at its Select Car Leasing Stadium.

The ultra-rapid EV charging hub, which is located near to the ground just off the M4 motorway, is switched on and ready to use, serving EV drivers travelling between the South West and London.

It provides drivers with charging speeds of up to 160kW, meaning drivers can top up quickly before continuing their journey.

InstaVolt’s chargers are powered using 100% renewable energy, take contactless payment, and require no subscription.

The company plans to have a network of 10,000 rapid chargers by 2030.

Tim Kilpatrick, Head of Commercial, at Reading FC, said: “Working with InstaVolt, the UK’s leading EV rapid charger provider, is one of a number of exciting innovations we are involved in as we aim to increase our commitment to improving the environment.

“We know there is work to be done to become more sustainable, to play our part and to lead the way when it comes to setting the right example and making practical, positive differences to the way we operate.

“We take our responsibilities as a football club very seriously and I believe we can make an important contribution to making all our lives more sustainable.”

Adrian Keen, InstaVolt’s CEO, said: “Football clubs are central to the communities they serve, and we’re thrilled at being able to provide the Royals with eight ultra-rapid chargers that can be used by the public.

“With class-leading reliability of more than 99.9% and eight chargers on-site EV drivers can be confident that when they arrive at the Select Car Leasing Stadium, they’ll find an easy-to-use charger, with nearby driver amenities.”
