Cambridge firm eVcentres has confirmed three locations in England and Scotland to become electric vehicle charging centres.
According to Zap Map, planning permission is expected to be passed early next year, with development to start in the summer of 2018.
At the moment the locations remain unknown.
The sites will have up to 20 rapid chargers and will run off 100 per cent renewable energy.
Any EV driver will be allowed to use the charging hubs, and locations will also provide a number of facilities, from coffee shops to gyms, to be used while vehicles are charging.
Richard Gordon, eVcentres CEO, said: “This is a very exciting moment not only in the evolution of the company, but also in the evolution of the UK’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
“Sceptics have always said the national grid will be the limiting factor in the uptake of electric vehicles, but utilising renewable energy such as solar and wind, combined with battery storage, will allow our centres to be uniquely off-grid but still able to rapid charge up to 20 vehicles at a time using 100 per cent renewable energy from new solar farms, specifically developed for our centres. It’s a real game-changer.”
