Good Energy and EV charging network specialists Engenie have formed a partnership to support new business opportunities in the fast‐moving electric vehicle market.
Data from Zap‐Map, the app partly owned by Good Energy, shows that the number of public charge point locations grew by 57% in 2019 to top 11,000. And National Grid estimates that there could be up to 11 million electric vehicles on UK roads by 2030.
Engenie is on target to install 2,000 rapid chargers in the UK by 2024, supported by a recent £35 million funding round. Good Energy has a strong focus on fast AC charging with its new One Point service. The all‐in‐one service is currently being piloted across the country, targeting destination and workplace charging locations.
The two companies say combining these two offerings will enable businesses, commercial landlords and local authorities to benefit from a blend of rapid DC charging and slower AC charging to match a mixture of parking durations and associated charging requirements, rather than adopting a one size fits all approach. The partnership will offer different funding and ownership options. The new agreement also establishes an offer for Good Energy customers to benefit from using Engenie’s public charging network at a discounted rate.
