Ecotricity’s Partnership With GRIDSERVE

TLT advised Ecotricity on its partnership with GRIDSERVE to drive development of the Electric Highway.

The Electric Highway was launched by Ecotricity in 2011 to enable early electric cars to drive the length and breadth of Britain. This new collaboration with GRIDSERVE will help transform electric vehicle charging facilities on Britain’s motorways and major roads through the use of new technology and rollout of additional high power chargers, and work is already underway.

GRIDSERVE has taken a 25 percent stake in the Electric Highway and also bring their front and back-office technology and expertise to the upgraded network, which will also have 247 support. Funding for the program is being provided by Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC, also a shareholder in GRIDSERVE.
