Unveiling the news earlier this month and working in partnership with Raw Charging and Drive Energi, the initial phase will see installation of EV chargers in 900 of Greene King’s managed pubs within the next 12 months.

The British government’s commitment to support growth of green, zero emission technologies includes ending the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans. Therefore, demand for EV charging points in places such as pubs and hotels is set to grow significantly.

“We’ve been working hard developing our sustainability plans as we continue to build a greener business,” said Greene King head of Estates, Tony Hodgson.

“With more people buying electric cars in a bid to be more environmentally friendly, we want to support our customers who come to dine or stay with us by offering electric charging ports in our pubs that are able to do so.”

The Churchill, in Royal Wootton Bassett, started the launch as the first Greene King pub with electric vehicle charging points, which were available for use from 3 August, 2020.

“This is a significant milestone for Drive Energi and we are proud to be working in partnership with Greene King on this exciting project as the UK’s EV charging sector will play major role in leading a green recovery post COVID-19,” added Drive Energi CEO, James Moat.

“With its clean air zones and expanding green infrastructure, the North West will be integral in the move to low carbon transport and driving the UK closer to achieving net-zero targets.

“We are committed to the roll-out of accessible public charging across the UK and drivers can expect to charge from over 300 Drive Energi locations by the end of 2021.”
