Charge point operator PoGo Charge has celebrated an amazing first year of growth and is well on its way to hitting its 2027 target of installing 7,000 charge points across the UK in its ambition of working with the UK’s foremost property investors, developers and property management businesses.

In the last three months alone, it has installed 248 charge points, following being awarded a major partnership agreement with LCP last year to install 658 ultra-rapid DC charging points at 89 strategic retail developments in England, Scotland and Wales.

PoGo provides en-route and destination charging across its network, and has been awarded a further contract with Kew Green Hotels to install 400 ultra-rapid charging points at 40 new EV charging hubs at hotel brands including Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, voco and Courtyard by Marriott. 

“The focus for 2024 will be on the continued expansion of the network, leveraging data insights from live sites to enhance our offering and further develop our site evaluation models,” said Stuart Douglas, Managing Director of PoGo Charge.

“We will also be further developing our energy partnerships and evolving a driver-focused strategy set to enhance the overall customer experience and set new benchmarks for accessibility.” 

PoGo also became a Zapmap Live data partner last year which means drivers using the Zapmap app and web map can view the live status and availability of PoGo charge points. 

Stuart says that the skills and agility of the commercial and operations teams means they are now deploying EV charging faster than ever:

“We have an opportunity to deliver something really special in the next 12 months and beyond,” he says. “We have already deployed 130 ultra-rapid EV charging points in the first two months of 2024, which is a fantastic place from which to grow.” 

PoGo has also become a ChargeSafe Certified partner, further solidifying its commitment to providing safe and reliable charging solutions and creating new sites that adhere to the high standards of safety and accessibility that give peace of mind to EV drivers.
