GRIDSERVE Partner Network launched to share net-zero knowledge
GRIDSERVE has launched The GRIDSERVE Partner Network to open up the company’s ‘Sun-To-Wheel Ecosystem’ – comprising hybrid solar & battery farms, electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, and electric vehicle solutions – to partners interested in accelerating net zero transport initiatives.
The plans, announced to international sustainable energy leaders today as GRIDSERVE speaks at COP26, aim to speed up the global rollout of world-class EV charging infrastructure powered by net zero carbon sustainable energy.
Toddington Harper, Founder and CEO of GRIDSERVE, said: “GRIDSERVE’s mission is to help deliver sustainable energy on the scale needed to move the needle on climate change. In the UK we are delivering this vision at an extraordinary pace, building a Sun-to-Wheel ecosystem of hybrid solar & battery farms, high-power EV chargers, and electric vehicle leasing solutions supported by customer experience technology that is decarbonising the UK’s transport system and giving drivers everywhere the confidence to go electric sooner than anyone could have imagined only a few years ago.
“However, to be serious about addressing the climate crisis, we need to think and act on a global scale. That’s why today, at COP26, we are launching the GRIDSERVE Partner Network to share our knowledge, expertise and experience from delivering and operating the leading charging network in the UK, to help like-minded partners to also rapidly deliver the best possible EV charging networks at scale across the world.”
GRIDSERVE also builds and operates hybrid solar & battery farms, which generate close to 100 million kWh’s of zero carbon energy each year, and also provide net zero carbon energy to GRIDSERVE’s charging network, which serves 85% of the UK’s motorway network as well as towns and cities across the UK.
GRIDSERVE opened the world’s first Electric Forecourt® in December 2020 in Braintree and plans to open several more in the next 12 months, starting with Norwich, Gatwick, Gateshead, and Uckfield.
Toddington Harper added: “Everything we have achieved in the UK has required us to overcome massive complexities and challenges – experience we’ve spent years developing. It’s now time to share those learnings with partners across the world and accelerate the shift to net zero transport. Our Partner Network allows us to do just that, enabling others to capitalise on our market leading EV charging solutions within their own networks and geographies.”
