Electric Vehicle Charging
In 2013, we added a new and exciting element to our range of services, namely the installation of domestic and commercial Electric Vehicle charging points throughout the UK. We are at the forefront of this huge market working in conjunction with Europe’s largest manufacturer, supplier and installer of charging equipment, Chargemaster PLC.
Since 2013, GB and Chargemaster have successfully worked in partnership to install a large volume of both domestic and commercial charging points all over the UK as part of Chargemaster’s POLAR network.
In fact, the venture was so successful that in 2015 Chargemaster purchased GB and incorporated them into the Chargemaster Group.
Chargemaster’s POLAR network is the UK’s biggest public charging network. It links over 5,000 charging points, not limited to just Chargemaster units, giving EV drivers a convenient and reliable nationwide charging system.
Like the POLAR network, the electric vehicle industry in general has seen huge increases in popularity in the last 5 – 10 years with all the main manufacturers now offering an electric/hybrid range. It is estimated that by 2020 there could be over 250,000 EV drivers in the UK.
This is an exciting time for the EV sector and the alternative energy agenda in general.
