UK Power Networks fast-tracks EV charging at petrol stations

UK Power Networks (UKPN) has partnered with independent forecourt operator, Motor Fuel Group (MFG) to fast-track the installation of electric vehicle (EV) chargers in petrol stations.

The new EV chargepoints will be distributed amongst some of MFG’s 900 sites in addition to the eight newly installed ultra-fast 150kW chargepoints at the company’s Catford site in South East London.

Ed Chadwick Til, director at MFG commented: “Our EV hub in Catford provides eight 150kW chargers. Whilst getting EV drivers back on the road quickly, it will be crucial in giving motorists the confidence to switch to zero carbon fuels. Thanks to UK Power Networks’ great work and the Green Recovery programme, MFG is able to build hubs like this quickly and ahead of the curve.”

This project is part of UKPN’s Green Recovery programme, which aims to support the UK’s transition to net zero by investing £66 million in low carbon energy projects.
