A BP Chargemaster site in Hammersmith, West London, has been named as the country’s best place to charge an electric vehicle at the inaugural Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards.
Featuring four 150kW ultra-fast chargers as well as one 50kW rapid charger, the Hammersmith Flyover site is the only ultra-fast public charging hub in London, serving everyone from taxi drivers to Tesla owners.
Matteo de Renzi, CEO of BP Chargemaster, said: “We believe that BP Hammersmith Flyover is the most-visited public charging destination in the UK, recently charging an average of 115 vehicles each day with more than 2,000 kWh of energy.
“Ultra-fast charging is the new frontier of public charging, with even the latest generation of small electric cars offering 100kW charging speeds, and it is as important to private motorists without off-street parking, as it is to professional drivers with higher mileage requirements, such as taxi and private hire drivers.”
The Hammersmith Flyover site is BP’s UK flagship retail site, with 24-hour operation and facilities on a 4,000 square metre site including an M&S Simply Food store.
