EV Charging Points in the United Kingdom

Share on :




Chargemaster, the UK’s largest provider of electric vehicle charging points, has installed its 10,000th public and commercial unit, marking a significant milestone in the company’s five year history.

The charging point has been installed on behalf of Leicester City Council as part of a group of new units at the Enderby and Meynells Gorse Park and Ride sites through the Plugged in Midlands electric vehicle infrastructure scheme, supported by the government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles.

The council has partnered with Chargemaster to provide the charging points, which allow EV owners to leave their vehicles charging during the day while they are at work or visiting the area, with the Park and Ride services providing the transport into the city centre.

Founder and chief executive, David Martell said: “We’re very pleased to be celebrating the installation of our 10,000th public charging point, an indication of all our hard work and investment over the last five years. We’re also equally thrilled to be working with Leicester City Council to provide the city’s Park and Ride facilities with a network of reliable charging posts.


“We already work with over 50 local authorities in the UK and we have been selected by a wide range of both public and private sector customers as the cost-effective and safe choice for electric vehicle charging. Through offering a turnkey service – right through from helping specify the type of unit, surveying the best location, installation of the charging point and if required ongoing operation of the units – Chargemaster provides a complete service for both councils and many other organisations such as hotels and supermarkets”

Chris Randall, Transport Strategy Officer at Leicester City Council said: “As a forward-looking local authority, we are delighted to be working with Chargemaster, which is leading the charge on electric vehicle infrastructure and is making the UK a leader in this field.”

There are eight Chargemaster charging points located in the Park and Ride car parks, with four at Enderby Park and Ride in Leicester Lane and four at Meynells Gorse Park and Ride in Ratby Lane.

Chargemaster designs and develops its own advanced charging technology at its hi-tech production facility based in Luton. The company is now producing over 1,200 charging units a month for supply not only in the UK but to more than 8 countries all over Europe.
