EV Centres UK is a Cambridge and London based business that is developing fully managed, multi-point, electric vehicle charging centres.
The business was founded by an experienced team of property professionals who are bringing their real estate and property development expertise to the rapidly expanding electric vehicle charging market.
Our charging centres are designed specifically with ev drivers in mind. Multiple charging points, pre-bookable via our app, ensure drivers are able to charge their vehicle when they want to. Other facilities include a coffee shop and meeting space with free wi-fi.
No sign-up or membership is required and customers can simply pay with 'touch-and-go', but register and our vehicle recognition and auto-payment system will make charging simple and convenient.
The buildings are timber-framed modular structures, based on a drive-thru design, that can be built to accommodate any site size. The Glulam timber construction is environmentally friendly and emits less C02 than conventional steel and concrete buildings.
What we do
Developing charging centres
First and foremost we are all about sourcing suitable sites and developing our ev centres to provide convenient, highly visible public charging centres across the UK.
Our centres can be sited in a range of locations and ideally these will be in or close to major towns and cities, along major trunk routes and be a minimum half an acre.
Former petrol stations or Little Chef type sites are ideal but we will consider any suitable location including retail parks, supermarkets, park & ride locations or even brown-field sites.
We are working with local authorities, land owners, commercial & residential property developers, property managers, retailers etc.
If you are a landowner, developer or agent with suitable sites, then please get in touch.
Coffee, food, work & relax
Our centres have a range of facilities for customers so their time can be comfortably and productively spent while their vehicle is charging.
These include a coffee shop/cafe, with drive-thru option, offering a range of food and drinks, work & meeting space with pre-bookable privacy pods, and there is free wi-fi throughout the centre.
On larger sites there will be additional facilities, perhaps a gym and other sporting activities, retail outlets and a whole variety of other uses.
No sign-up is required and customers can simply opt to pay using 'touch-and-go', but register for membership via our app and our auto-payment system will make charging simple and convenient, as well as offering a range of other member benefits.
State of the art charging
We are fully independent and work with a range of the leading charger manufacturers.
Our sites have the latest state-of-the-art charging technology to accommodate all users and vehicle types, from slower A/C charging for hybrids to Ultra-Rapid D/C charging for the latest full ev's and those who want to be back on the road again as quickly as possible.
We are working with local authorities and businesses to accommodate service vehicles, delivery vans and taxi fleets. Some of our larger sites will have electric vehicles for sale or rent, to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles among the business community.
We are looking for sites
As part of our planned roll-out of centres across the UK, we are actively looking to acquire suitable sites. Ideally these will be in or close to major towns and cities, along major trunk routes and will be minimum half an acre.
Former petrol stations or roadside Little Chef type sites are ideal but we will consider any suitable location including retail parks, supermarkets, park & ride locations or even brown-field sites.
Any landowners, developers or agents with suitable sites please contact our property team.
Consultancy & installation
Property development companies today have a legal requirement to make provision for ev charging and many businesses are looking to provide charging facilities, whether for public use or at a work place, but do not have the expertise to know exactly what is involved and to make a properly informed decision on what equipment to install.
We now provide a full consultancy service to help you understand the important issues and be able to make an fully informed decision to ensure you install the most appropriate infrastructure.
