London Borough of Newham to add 80 EV charging stations

The London Borough of Newham is adding 80 public electric vehicle charging stations with partners Allego and Alfen.

Allego, who secured the Transport for London (TfL) concession, will be responsible for installing and operating the charging stations.

Alfen will supply the smart EV charging stations themselves.

In the first phase of the program comprising in total 80 charge sockets, Allego will operate 40 smart Alfen Twin Dual Socket chargers.

The 22kW charging units will can charge cars and vans up to almost 100 miles of range per hour.

Alfen said these chargers also offer the flexibility to create smart charging hubs as the network grows.

This project, part of the Go Ultra Low City Scheme (GULCS), is a joint TfL, Greater London Authority (GLA) and boroughs project that aims to install over 1,500 publicly accessible EV charging points in London by the end of 2020.
