ECOTRICITY & GRIDSERVE announce a new partnership to power up the electric highway

Fully Charged has brought us an ‘Exclusive Newsflash’ about ECOTRICITY & GRIDSERVE announcing a new partnership to power up the electric highway.

ECOTRICITY is partnering with GRIDSERVE and the transformation work has two elements, both of which are already underway. Firstly, all existing chargers will be replaced with new technology, doubling the capacity – offering all three connection types (CCS, CHAdeMO, and AC) and contactless payment. Secondly – a further 6 to 12 pumps of the all-new 350kW high power standard will be installed. Funding for the programme is being provided by Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC, also a shareholder in GRIDSERVE.
