About Be.EV

The Be.EV EV charging network is expanding at pace across Greater Manchester and the north of England in order to make charging simple, reliable and effortless.

The company works closely with the communities in which it operates and was appointed by TfGM in 2019 to grow and maintain the city-region’s publicly owned EV charging network. This included a major upgrade of the existing network, as well as the delivery of additional public and private funded chargers. The company’s mission is to give all drivers what they want: more chargers, in more places that they can access more easily and more cost-effectively.

The company is actively working with ambitious developers and local authorities across the UK to build a network of over 1,000 chargers across the North of England. This will include developing exciting Be.EV Green Oasis Hubs.

Backed and powered by Octopus Energy Generation, all Be.EV chargers are powered by 100% Renewable energy, sourced from the UK.
