The EVN, the UK’s pioneering EV charging station development company, has announced its plan to develop ultra-fast charging stations for electric cars across the UK.
The announcement was made at the UK’s Zero Emissions Vehicle Summit, which was headlined by Prime Minister Theresa May.
Leclanché is one of the world’s leading energy storage solutions providers and has been selected as EV Network’s (EVN) partner of choice for a UK based project.
EVN’s charging stations, which follow the existing “petrol station format,” will have charging stations country wide, offering car owners ultra-fast charging capabilities. The increased availability of fast charging stations will increase the rate of adoption of EV. Access to charging stations and the speed at which cars can be charged are at the heart of EV Network’s model.
Over the last 12 months, The EV Network has been securing prime locations across the UK and signing strategic partnerships with leading companies including leading EV charging station operators like ESB and Leclanché S.A. EVN is planning to replicate this model outside the UK from 2019.
