eEnergy to install 50,000 workplace EV chargers

eEnergy has unveiled plans to install 50,000 workplace chargers in the UK by 2030, focusing on public sector locations such as schools and universities.

The digital energy services company has signed an exclusive agreement with EO Charging, which delivers EV charging solutions.

The two companies aim to install 2,000 chargers within the first 12 months of the contract.

No upfront cost

eEnergy’s ‘eCharge’ service enables clients to install EV charging without upfront capital expenditure, with customers financing the investment through longer-term, fully serviced performance contracts.

Customers will also be able to monetise their EV charging facilities by making them available to local communities or providing charging in place of parking fees.

Harvey Sinclair, CEO, eEnergy said: “Ensuring everyone has access to reliable charging, especially for those who cannot plug in at home, poses considerable challenges. Like many employers, schools face a growing demand for EV chargers just as energy costs reach record highs. Our ambitious rollout will make life easier for teachers and other drivers by offering an affordable and accessible alternative.  

“By pairing workplace chargers with energy-saving technologies and clean energy procurement, everything from lighting to commuting can be powered using 100% fossil-free energy, cutting energy costs, and creating new revenue opportunities for the public sector.”

He added that the company expects to install up to 20 chargers per workplace car park, with customers able to choose 7 kW, 11 kW or 22 kW chargers.

Public sector EVs

Charlie Jardine, Founder and CEO, EO Charging, said the partnership with eEnergy will ensure the public sector can adopt net zero infrastructure at scale, making EVs accessible to more people.

“Together we have built a compelling solution for those who are looking to install EV chargers as part of their broader net zero strategy,” he said.
