GRIDSERVE Electric Highway charging sessions triple following multimillion-pound upgrade works

In the year since GRIDSERVE acquired the Electric Highway, the number of charging sessions has tripled while the energy supply has quadrupled.

The average charge time on the network has also decreased, with this in line with the faster charging installed by GRIDSERVE, which began upgrading the network in March 2021.

Reliability on the network has also improved over the past year, with the network now having 99% uptime and a goal of raising this further.

Additionally, the electric vehicle (EV) charging network said that accessibility has improved, with contactless payment now ubiquitous across the network, having been previously unavailable at legacy chargers.

Each Electric Super Hub also includes at least one extra-wide accessible charging bay for every 6 EV charging spaces, while all 3 connection types (CCS, CHAdeMO and Type 2 for AC) are available across the network.

    GRIDSERVE need to do more, particularly on the M25 N, S, & W to improve charging here. The EV charging industry are not providing enough public rapid charging hubs on this key motorway. We need 10 to 20 large hubs here for current use, let alone future needs. The current provision is a disgrace to the EV industry (Tesla excepted) and will only hamper EV take up.
