The retail and leisure destination Brent Cross has partnered with RAW Charging to install reliable, durable and affordable charging infrastructure at the North London location – 29 AC 22kW dual chargers have been installed which will allow 58 electric vehicles to charge simultaneously. 

As electric car registrations continue to rise, with 12,310 new registrations of battery-electric cars in February 2023, the new charging points will help meet the growing demand among EV drivers for destination charging.

“The launch of our charging facilities at Brent Cross is the latest part of our roll of charging infrastructure across London and will make the venue one of the largest EV charging hubs in the UK,” said Bruce Galliford, CEO at RAW Charging.

“Brent Cross is a superb location in the heart of the local community and has strong transport links to welcome EV drivers from all over London. Local residents and customers of the shopping centre can now make this their go-to charging destination whilst away from home.

“As we move closer towards the government ban on the production of all new petrol and diesel cars in 2030, it is the time for more drivers to embrace electric vehicles. Through partnerships like this, we are making clean motoring accessible, convenient and affordable to encourage more motorists to make the switch to an electric vehicle.”

Through partnerships like the one with Brent Cross Shopping Centre, RAW Charging’s goal is to pave the way towards a carbon net zero future by offering miles of charging through an easy and affordable solution.

“As electric vehicle ownership rises, drivers’ decisions on where to shop, dine and socialise will be more influenced by destinations, like Brent Cross, which offer charging points,” said Chris Barnes, General Manager Brent Cross.

“As well as supporting more sustainable modes of transport, this roll out will help deliver a valuable boost for our retailers, who will be well placed to serve this customer demographic in-store as their vehicles charge up.”

Brent Cross Shopping Centre is located on Prince Charles Drive in London and is open every day of the week.
