Rapid EV charging network Engenie has announced a partnership with M7 Real Estate, that will see the company’s units installed at M7’s out-of-town retail sites in eight locations across the UK.
Powered by 100% renewable energy, the partnership is expected to save more than 2.5 tonnes of NOx from UK roads, according to Engenie’s calculations.
The announcement follows on from Engenie’s news that investment by Investec will see the network grow to 1,500 rapid chargers, installed by 2021.
The majority of the 16 rapid chargers are expected to be installed at M7 locations before Christmas this year, available for customers to charge while shopping.
Patrick Sherriff, Business Development Director at Engenie said: “Installing convenient, accessible and easy-to-use EV charging points across M7’s UK portfolio will put the customer at the heart of the EV transition.
“At the same time, the 100% renewable energy powering the chargers and the positive impact on local air quality fits with both M7 and Engenie’s long-term commitments to improving our environmental impact.”
John Murnaghan, Head of UK Real Estate at M7 said: “As the number of retail warehouse assets under our management continues to grow, so too has the demand from our customers for this technology.
“This partnership presents a compelling opportunity to help future proof our retail park portfolio as well as enhancing the performance of these assets and consumer choice on site.”
