By 2030, on-street charge point operator char.gy plans to have installed a total of 100,000 on-street chargers.
The London-based charge point operator (CPO) has installed just under 1,000 charge points from January to March of this year, which accounts for one in three of all new public UK charge points installed in the quarter.
char.gy, which is a live Zap-Pay partner, is also continuing to increase its geographical reach, having installed its first chargers in East Lothian in Scotland last month.
Moreover, the operator has also appointed a new CEO, John Lewis, to lead the company through its next phase of growth.
"I am incredibly excited to be joining the talented and driven team at char.gy at such a crucial and transformative time,” said Lewis.
“Char.gy is built on the ambition of bringing accessible and convenient charging options to every driver in the UK.
“On this trajectory, we are facilitating electric vehicle adoption and spearheading the energy transition.
“The potential impact of our mission is enormous - I am looking forward to both driving the business towards its goals and partnering with local authorities to make lower emissions a reality.”
In his new role as CEO, Lewis will leverage his extensive knowledge of large-scale infrastructure projects to assist local authorities in England progress towards their carbon net zero goals.
"I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished so far, from ramping up our installation pace to extending on-street charging to more individuals who lack driveways, to introducing our 'Night Saver' tariff that equates the cost of on-street charging with domestic rates overnight,” said Richard Stobart, founder of char.gy.
“As we gear up for the next stage of our expansion, I am delighted to welcome John as our new CEO, to lead our business towards its ambitious goals."
