NewMotion, a leading European provider of charging solutions for EVs, has announced a partnership with Char.gy, an on-street charge point operator, adding electric vehicle charge points to its growing UK public roaming network.
450 connections have been added, a number that is expected to more than double in the coming months as Char.gy expand its network.
Char.gy makes use of existing electric infrastructure on public streets to install charge points on lampposts and satellite bollards, providing a solution for customers without private charge points.
NewMotion has recently bolstered its UK presence with partnerships with Aldi, Mazda and Alphabet and several roaming agreements.
Alan McCleave, UK General Manager of NewMotion, says: “We are pleased to welcome Char.gy as a roaming partner as we work together to offer even more public charging options for our customers across the UK. A seamless network of charge points is vital for existing and prospective EV drivers. Through roaming partnerships such as this one with Char.gy we help create easy access to the ever growing public charging network for plug-in drivers.”
Richard Stobart, CEO, Char.gy, adds: “Char.gy is delighted to be collaborating with NewMotion to make more charge points available to more people. E-mobility depends on access to easy and practical infrastructure, whether it is conveniently located charge points or a single roaming network accessible via one charge card or subscription, and we are happy for all customers to charge easily.”
A member of the Shell group, NewMotion provides access to over 155,000 charging points across 35 countries.
