Engie installs 20 smart chargers for Surrey new-build project

Engie has installed 20 smart chargers at a new build residential development in the Surrey commuter town of Virginia Water.

The project is an example of how charge point operators can collaborate with property developers to make sure electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities are factored into new build locations.

The 10 dual socket chargers, installed by Greenpoint Services, provide Luddington House residents with 7kW charging and are situated in dedicated parking bays at the residence.

Charlie Grumbridge, director at Greenpoint Services, said that with Virginia Water being so close to London, many residents use EVs to drive into the capital as they are exempt from the congestion charge.

Alex Bamberg, Engie EV Solutions managing director, said: “A significant proportion of charging of electric vehicles takes place at home, so providing charging infrastructure is key in encouraging consumers in their decision to purchase an electric vehicle and supporting the UK’s journey on its Road to Zero."

Bamberg said Engie is continuing to rollout public rapid EV charging, as well as private workplace, and private residential charging across the UK.
