National Trust signs with RAW Charging to install EV charging bays

The National Trust has contracted with RAW Charging to install electric vehicle charging for visitors. Over the next three years, RAW will install EV charging at suitable sites across the Trust’s portfolio in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. RAW will invest up to £12 million in the rollout.
Each location will be equipped with a number of charging bays. Most chargers will be AC destination chargers allowing visitors to charge for half a day or more. However, DC rapid charging hubs will be made available at a small number of National Trust places where the visit time is shorter than standard, or if the location is convenient for drivers to charge during a short break from longer journeys. Once complete, the rollout is expected to be one of RAW’s largest, investing up to £12 million in the project.
RAW said, “As we see more EVs on the roads ahead of the transition, the UK will become more reliant on destination charging”. It has recently launched charging facilities at the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York, Crown Point Shopping Park in Leeds and has announced plans for a new ChargeYard in Oxford as part of a sponsorship with Oxford City Football Club. It is working with Greene King to install EV Charging across its sites.
