ChargeUK launches as the voice of the EV charging industry
4th May 2023
ChargeUK has launched as the new trade association for the UK’s EV charging industry and ESB Energy is delighted to be a founding member of the organisation. The association is the voice of the UK’s EV charging industry and is committed to the transition to electric vehicles.
It brings together 18 of the largest companies installing the charge points needed to enable the UK’s switch to electric vehicles (EVs) and the realisation of Net Zero.
Between them the members of ChargeUK have announced they will invest over £6 billion installing and operating new EV charging infrastructure by 2030. They will install tens of thousands of new chargers this year, with the aim of doubling the size of the network through 2023.
As the sector continues to increase the availability of charging and to accelerate investment and delivery, ChargeUK will work collaboratively with government and other stakeholders to break down barriers and shape the policies and regulation needed to enable transition.
As EV take up accelerates, the charging industry operators that make up ChargeUK will have a vital role in helping the UK transition to Net Zero. The UK is among the world’s leading nations for EV infrastructure, offering a key advantage as the world works to achieve its climate goals.
John Byrne, Head of EV Solutions at ESB Energy said, ‘ESB Energy is delighted to be one of the founding members of ChargeUK and we look forward to supporting EV drivers to transition to electric vehicles and supporting the UK’s Net Zero future'
