Q-Park and Chargemaster boost Capital’s EV charging network
The Chargemaster Plc units enable charging to take place at up to twice the speed of standard charging and have been installed in Q-Park car parks located across London in 13 locations: Park Lane, Chinatown, Pimlico, Harley Street, Knightsbridge, St John’s Wood, Trafalgar, Queensway, Oxford Street, Soho, Abingdon, Butlers Wharf, and Burlington.
Source London scheme members will be able to charge an EV for free at any of these sites across London as long as normal parking charges are paid. Q-Park also offers up to 50% discount on parking to customers who purchase an EV Season Ticket.
The charging points are part of Mayor Boris Johnson’s Source London network, which is managed by Transport for London (TfL).
Nick Fairholme, TfL director of congestion charging and traffic enforcement, said: ‘The addition of these charge points to Source London will provide a significant boost to our target providing 1,300 charge points throughout the capital by 2013. By providing more charge points, we hope to encourage more people to drive electric vehicles, which will help deliver cleaner air for the capital and reduce carbon emissions.’
