Places for London launches search for a new electric vehicle charging hub partner

Five sites across London will initially be offered to the joint venture, with the potential for more to be added in the future. Partnership will build on existing work by TfL to grow the capital’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure while also helping generate revenue for reinvestment into London’s transport network. Places for London – Transport for London’s (TfL) property company – has begun searching for a single joint venture (JV) partner to help it bring forward a number of new electric vehicle (EV) ultra-rapid charging hubs across its estate. The JV partnership, which will help support the Mayor of London’s commitment to achieve Net Zero carbon by 2030, aims to deliver new off-street charging hubs that will be able to simultaneously charge multiple vehicles. The sites will also help support placemaking in the local areas by including retail and welfare facilities on some of the larger sites where possible.

London leads the UK in the uptake of EVs, with 142,000 plug-in electric cars and vans already registered in the capital.* With almost 18,300 charge points to date, London currently has more than a third of all EV charging infrastructure across the UK, more than any other UK region.** Places for London is looking for a partner that has experience in the EV charging sector, such as designing and building EV charging hubs elsewhere in the UK and operating a portfolio of industry-leading charging points. It is open to interest from a consortium or a single entity.

Five locations have been identified as initial seed sites, with the potential to increase the number of sites available to the JV over time. Each site will deliver a minimum of six publicly accessible ultra-rapid charging bays, including at least one bay for those with accessibility needs, which will allow drivers to charge their vehicles in approximately half an hour. The five initial locations – and the anticipated number of bays - are:

Hanger Lane - a vacant site off the North Circular - 20 bays
Canning Town – a roadside location off the A13 - 8 bays
Car park next to Hatton Cross Tube station – a dedicated area within the car park - 6 bays
Tottenham Hale – a former car park that is used currently as a worksite - 6 bays
Hillingdon Circus – an area next to Hillingdon Tube station – 9 bays
By creating a long-term JV partnership, this opportunity will enable Places for London to directly shape the design and delivery of the hubs while generating long-term revenue, which can then be reinvested back into the transport network – further encouraging a shift to more sustainable forms of transport.
