NatWest to install 600 electric vehicle (EV) chargers at UK sites
The banking group will work with EQUANS to install the high power GeniePoint electric vehicle (EV) chargers
EQUANS, the new brand for global energy company, ENGIE’s, services-led activities, has been appointed to provide NatWest with 600 electric vehicle chargers across its office locations in the UK. The company will supply, commission and operate the network of high power GeniePoint chargers.
NatWest has strategically selected locations where the demand is high and power is readily available. Through the partnership with EQUANS, colleagues and customers of the bank can benefit from the low energy price unit. The chargers will also support the company’s transition to 300 fleet EV’s.
Access to the charging points will be for staff, visitors, and customers at NatWest offices, using the EQUANS’ GeniePoint platform, which also powers one of the largest national EV networks, the GeniePoint network. EQUANS will install high specification Alfen Pro-Line 7.4kW dual chargers.
Belfast Donegall Square East will be the first NatWest location to receive the EV chargers in the coming weeks. This is great news for NatWest staff and customers. Let’s hope more banks follow suit and help to encourage motorists to transition to driving electric sooner.
Jerry Moloney, managing director for Equans’ Futures business in the UK & Ireland, said: “This partnership demonstrates a clear and strong commitment from NatWest on where they stand on the net zero transition.
“The only way we will convince a greater proportion of the population to consider electric vehicles is by giving them greater options and better access to chargers. This investment from NatWest does exactly that.
“We’re delighted to be offering NatWest customers, staff and visitors with access to our fast and reliable GeniePoint Network and look forward to progressing this partnership.”
Michael Lynch, climate solutions lead at NatWest, said: “At NatWest we are helping our staff decarbonise transport and achieve net zero commuting.
“Working in partnership with Equans to provide EV Chargepoints at key strategic office locations supports our staff in making that transition to electric vehicles and help reduce our carbon footprint.”
