Chargemaster has announced that its EV charging network will use 100% renewable electricity from 1st August.
The company, which runs the POLAR and Charge Your Car networks, supplied more than 500,000 kWh of electricity in the first half of 2017 and has confirmed that electricity consumed by its networks will be certified and matched to energy generated by renewable sources.
With more than 40,000 EV drivers using over 5,600 POLAR and Charge Your Car points across the UK, the move will see more than 40% of the country’s charge points using renewable energy through Chargemaster.
David Martell, Chief Executive of Chargemaster said: “Switching POLAR, the UK’s largest EV charging network, to renewable energy is great news for EV drivers in the UK.
“It reduces the overall emissions of electric motoring, removing the upstream footprint of electricity generation in the same way as drivers have eliminated their tailpipe emissions.”
