EVC, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charge points and infrastructure, has joined forces with CTEK to meet the rising demand for EV charging in the UK.

CTEK will support EVC on a new programme involving the installation of free EV charge points to the residential and commercial sector.

CTEK Energy and Facilities global director Cecilia Routledge said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with EVC on this exciting project.

“We have a proven track for the successful delivery of EVSE products and solutions in markets across Europe, and together with EVC, we are looking forward to bringing our expertise to this ground-breaking approach to EV charging.

“The award of this contract is a real testament to the quality and reliability of our products and our expertise in this field.”

Backed by renewable energy investment group Oasthouse Ventures, EVC plans to install nearly 100,000 EV charge points across the UK, enabling strategic EV charging access to all sectors for free.

Under the five-year partnership, CTEK will supply EV charging equipment, scalable load balancing solutions and associated EV management software to EVC.

CTEK explained that its solution is centred around its Chargestorm Connected wallbox and is equipped with its Nanogrid load-balancing solution.

EVC managing director Nick Ballamy said: “We were impressed with CTEK’s unrivalled expertise in EV charging, and their commitment to helping us roll out this ground-breaking new approach to EV charging.

“With CTEK, we know we are getting a tried and tested solution that will deliver cutting edge, quality products that are safe and easy to use. The CTEK team has been delivering EV charging solutions for over ten years and we are confident that this partnership will help to significantly grow our programme.”
