Fuel station giant bets on EVs
UK fuel station operator Motor Fuel Group is set to invest £400 million in electric vehicle charge point (EVCP) installations at fuel stations across the UK.
The group will operate EV forecourts for a range of fuel station brands including Esso, BP and Shell.
Motor Fuel Group has committed to installing 3,000 EV chargers at around 500 sites nationwide by the end of 2030. The charge points should be capable of charging speeds of 150kW and 350kW.
William Bannister, CEO, the Motor Fuel Group, said to Electrical Review, “Our planned £400 million investment in this vital infrastructure will help keep UK motorists on the move, and our essential retail will support local communities and the economy. I am looking forward to engaging with the Government to ensure this investment best meets the national EV infrastructure requirement to help us all make a contribution to ensuring Britain meets its net zero target by 2050.”
