Good Energy partners with Engenie to accelerate EV charging

13.03.2020

100% clean power company, Good Energy, is today announcing a new partnership with nationwide EV charging network specialists Engenie.

An agreement was signed this month between the two companies to support new business opportunities in the fast‐moving electric vehicle market.

The UK’s charging network is being upgraded quickly and access is expanding. Zap‐Map data shows that the number of public charge point locations grew by 57% in 2019, standing at over 11,000. And National Grid estimates that there could be up to 11 million electric vehicles on UK roads by 2030, up from 265,000 plug‐in cars today.

Innovative companies, such as Engenie and Good Energy, have been quick to establish themselves in the growing sector. Engenie is a proven public charging network EV installer with a strong supply chain for DC rapid charging. The company is on target to install 2,000 rapid chargers in the UK by 2024, supported by a recent £35 million funding round.

Good Energy has a strong focus on fast AC charging with its new One Point service. The all‐in‐one service is currently being piloted across the country, targeting destination and workplace charging locations. The combination of these two specialist offerings will enable businesses, commercial landlords and local authorities to benefit from a blend of rapid DC charging and slower AC charging to match a mixture of parking durations and associated charging requirements, rather than adopting a one size fits all approach. The partnership will offer different funding and ownership options. The new agreement also establishes an offer for Good Energy customers to benefit from using Engenie’s public charging network at a discounted rate.

Good Energy’s CEO and Founder, Juliet Davenport, said: “More and more businesses are aware of the need to invest in clean transport. This new partnership means Good Energy can offer businesses a full range of EV charging needs, and, more importantly, is powered by 100% renewable power. Working with Engenie is the perfect complement to our own One Point service, and we are eager to get going.”

Ian Johnston, CEO of Engenie said: “We understand that there is no one‐size fits all approach and that different businesses require different types of charging infrastructure, riven by what their customers truly need. Our partnership with Good Energy will make it as convenient as possible for businesses, landlords and local authorities to realise the benefits of EVs and EV charging infrastructure and support the transition to a low carbon future.”
