New EV charging points in North London have been installed, thanks to an investment of £1.2m from the UK Power Networks Green Recovery programme.
The work has delivered 1.5MVA of extra power to EV charge points at Motor Fuel Group’s MFG Ambassador service station in Stoke Newington.
A total of eight new ultra-rapid 150kW EV Power chargers are now online at the facility on the key A10 route.
UK Power Networks is delivering £66million in investment across 85 sites as part of the Green Recovery programme, to fast-track low carbon energy projects that will help achieve the Government’s Ten Point Plan towards Net Zero by 2050.
This supports the transition to Net Zero carbon emissions and London Mayor, Sadiq Khan’s pathway for London to be Net Zero Carbon by 2030.
So far, the UK Power Networks team has energised four MFG forecourts under the Green Recovery programme.
Earlier this month, Cobham Services announced that it had upgraded its EV charging station, backed by a £3.8 million green recovery investment from UK Power Networks.
At Cobham, UK Power Networks has installed 5km of new 33,000-volt cabling as well as new equipment at a substation in Effingham.
Martin Symes, Motor Fuel Group EV director, said, “UK Power Networks proudly champions the EV sector in its journey towards empowering sustainable mobility.
“By fostering innovative connections using its Green Recovery scheme, they pave the way for a resilient and eco-friendly future.
“This in turn allows Motor Fuel Group the opportunity to continue its fast paced Ultra Rapid charging rollout across its nearly 900 locations throughout the UK.”
