Q-Park investing millions of pounds in new UK and Ireland charging points

Q-Park has teamed up with EB Charging to install 600 electric vehicle (EV) chargers across 80 sites in the UK and Ireland as part of a £3 million investment in the rollout of charging points across its estate of parking facilities.

Installations are due to commence in July 2022 and will include the modernisation of the existing charging infrastructure with the latest hardware.

As part of the agreement, EB Charging will be responsible for the installation of the EV charging hardware and the management of the charging provision, including a 24/7 customer support service to Q-Park customers who park and charge. 

Adam Bidder, managing director of Q-Park UK and Ireland, said: “The world is changing and we’re happy to contribute with our portfolio and operations to the new environment we are in. We already lead the way on electric vehicle charging in the private parking sector, even so we undertook a lengthy consultation process to ensure that we found the correct strategic partner to add value to our existing parking and charging proposition.”

The addition of these chargers adds to Q-Park’s existing network of more than 250 city centre charging points. 

In addition to the public EV charging points, Q-Park has Mobility Hubs which include the provision of rapid fleet charging solutions, such as those in the Q-Park Park Lane Mobility Hub in London.

Alex Calnan, managing director of EB Charging, added: “We are delighted to reach this historic agreement with Q-Park UK and Ireland. This ambitious project delivers substantial benefits to Q-Park's customers and accelerates the electric charging points as the demand for charging increases. Both EB Charging and Blink look forward to working closely with the team at Q-Park, and together, help clean the air that we breathe as we provide for more electric vehicles.”  

EB Charging, which was recently acquired by global EV charging infrastructure company Blink Charging, works with local authorities and businesses to create new EV charging infrastructure.

On completion of this deployment programme, Q-Park said discussions will start on future phases and stated it is “eager to remain at the forefront of electric charging in the parking market”.
