The opening of a Gridserve compact electric forecourt has more than doubled the number of high-powered chargers in the region.
The new charging hub, supplied by 100% renewable energy, hosts 36 electric vehicle (EV) chargers, including 22 high-power chargers with up to 350kW of power, capable of adding up to 100 miles of range in only five minutes.
The Norwich site forms part of Gridserve’s £1 billion UK-wide investment being rolled out into its charging infrastructure network and is designed to deliver the best possible charging experience.
Toddington Harper, CEO of Gridserve, said: “Norwich Electric Forecourt showcases a brand-new design, where we have been able to provide both charging and a great customer experience in a smaller footprint than our first site at Braintree.
“By elevating the facilities above the chargers, we make the best use of the space available and are able to deliver a great EV experience without compromise, even when space is at a premium and sites are more constrained.”
The Norwich Electric Forecourt, says Gridserve, more than doubles the number of high-powered chargers in the region.
Gridserve continues to accelerate its rollout plans with additional electric forecourts now in progress, including one at Gatwick Airport.
Several additional electric forecourts also have planning permission including Uckfield, Gateshead, Plymouth and Stevenage with more than 30 additional sites also under development as part of the company’s commitment to deliver more than 100 electric forecourts.
