Arsenal and green energy supplier Octopus Energy Group have installed three chargers have been installed in the fan parking zone at the Emirates stadium in north London, offering 100% renewable electricity to EV drivers during games. The chargers can charge 14 kWh during a standard football match – the equivalent of a two hour drive after a game.
Mike Lloyd, Sustainability and Logistics Manager at Arsenal said: “From a practical point of view, the installation of the chargers is very important to ensure we cater for our fans as EVs become more widely used. As a Premier League football club with a huge global following, it’s also crucial that we use our platform to promote green practices, inspire our communities and push each other towards a more sustainable future. This is just the beginning and hopefully as the numbers of electric vehicles on the roads increase, we can match that with the facilities here at Emirates Stadium.”
