What are the barriers to overcome and the opportunities on offer when building an electric vehicle (EV) hub?
Find out in this conversation between Mark Richards, Partner and EMEA Head, Energy, Environment and Infrastructure at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP), and Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging.
They talk about the project to launch Osprey’s Stratford EV hub, which opened ahead of schedule in December 2019 – the facility was Transport for London’s (TfL’s) first rapid charging hub in the city and each charger delivers 100 miles of driving range in just 35 minutes.
The installation is made up of six 50kW rapid chargers at HS1’s Stratford International Station – Osprey Charging, at the time of the project known as Engenie, launched the hub, while BCLP helped it to navigate the complex regulatory, financial, planning and real estate landscape.
Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging said: “We need these hubs today, we need many more of them in the city.”
