GRIDSERVE advocates sustainable charging at EV Magazine LIVE
EV charging is going to be a hot topic in 2023. In fact, it already is.
Increasing levels of EV adoption mean that demand for charging solutions are increasing, which caused havoc among drivers over the Christmas period—further exacerbating the need for a network of public charging services.
What would this look like? Ideally, EV drivers would be able to take longer trips across the country, either for work or to enjoy a break, and know that there are ample charging stations along their route, that those charging stations will be available, and that they won’t be left strapped for ways to utilise charging time.
This very much describes what GRIDSERVE Sustainable Energy Limited is doing across the UK—creating the Electric Highway blueprint that will allow EVs to roam freely across the country. There’s also one more crucial word to include when discussing GRIDSERVE’s story—sustainability.
Founded by Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE, the company is backing all of its EV infrastructure with sustainable energy, which ensures that drivers are truly managing their emissions.
Educating the next generation of EV drivers
GRIDSERVE’s Electric Forecourts are now setting the standard for what can be offered to customers, and how businesses can support overall adoption of EVs. After spending some time with the firm’s Chief Vehicle Officer, Sam Clarke, we found why it’s so important for the company to educate consumers to bring them around to a truly necessary lifestyle shift.
One of the insights we gained—and perhaps one that will be shared at EV Magazine LIVE—is around the mindset and lifestyle shift. GRIDSERVE’s Electric Forecourts echo the idea of opportunity charging, which means drivers can use charging times to multitask while they go for coffee, open their laptops to work, or complete a small weekly shop.
This is something that will become the norm; a shift that will change the habits of consumers to allow them to charge their cars while carrying out their daily tasks, instead of making dedicated stops or trips to fill up with fuel.
This is just one of the many benefits offered by GRIDSERVE. The other is a leasing service that doubles as public relations for EVs. Offering a variety of cars to choose from, GRIDSERVE is committed to finding drivers the right electrified car model for their needs while also showing them ropes when it comes to charging their car, understanding the tariffs for EV charging, and making sure that they are able to optimise their lifestyle with the car.
GRIDSERVE takes to the stage at EV Magazine LIVE
On the 2nd February 2023, we’ll be going live with EV Magazine LIVE, in the evening, at the London Transport Museum.
Presenting to an exclusive audience and a virtual showcase of EV industry authorities, Sam Clarke will discuss some of the key things that we’ve learned about GRIDSERVE and the model it has adopted to ensure that customers thrive, sustainability, with all-electric motor cars.
“We want to make sure that every electron that flows through any vehicle, anywhere, is a sustainable electron. It’s net zero. We need to facilitate the charging infrastructure or charging sessions that our customers are asking for, so we are also mindful of energy prices, and the market as well,” says Clarke.
“While we generate energy, we also consume it, but we have to make sure that whatever we are consuming from the market or generating ourselves is net zero at all times.”
