ScottishPower and St Austell Brewery have teamed up to boost charge point provision in the South West of England by approximately 60%, by installing rapid and ultra-rapid chargers across the region.

Charge points will be installed in the car parks of St Austell Brewery’s 160 pubs across the South West. 

“We have a proud history of innovation so working with ScottishPower to install electric car chargers was a great way to prepare our pubs for an electric future," said Paul Hine, Supply Chain Director, St Austell Brewery.

"For us, going greener makes good business sense. We know that investing in this green tech will help us reduce our carbon footprint and thanks to ScottishPower we have been able to do this at scale. 

"We’re proud to be providing charging points for our local communities and creating an ‘electric tourist trail’ for anybody visiting our sites and this beautiful part of the country. What better excuse to visit the pub for a well-deserved break and a spot of lunch?”

Committed to achieving net zero emissions across its operations by 2040, the company has already upgraded its company car fleet and installed EV chargers for employees driving hybrid or electric vehicles across all its head offices.

“Since the beginning of our partnership, the team at St Austell Brewery always had clear goals of wanting to bring something special to their business and the local community in the South West," said Andrew Mouat, Head of Smart Mobility at ScottishPower.

“At ScottishPower, we want to help businesses integrate green tech into their operations to allow their customers to live a more sustainable lifestyle while creating a new revenue stream. We help business leaders find the best chargers for their carparks, manage and cover the cost of installation, and service the units for the term of the contract.”
