The move, which will see the installation of 400 rapid EV chargers, powered by 100% renewable energy and allowing up to three cars to charge at each site at any one time - will provide the building blocks for a nationwide network of rapid chargers.

Andy Kershaw, Head of Facilities Management and Projects, Marston's, said: “Our goal is to become the UK's most environmentally efficient pub business. By partnering with innovative and customer-focused organisations like Engenie, we'll continue to hold ourselves and the sector to the highest possible environmental standards.”

Engenie's rapid charging points are simple to use, require no membership or connection fee and operate with all contactless payment cards. Each 50kW charger is compatible with all EVs on the market today and provides an 80% charge in just 30-60min (depending on the battery).

Patrick Sherriff, Business Development Director, Engenie, said: “Our national network of rapid chargers is having a significant positive impact on local air quality; another feather in the cap of Marston's' already impressive long-term environmental commitments. At the same time, our easy-to-use rapid EV charging points will put the customer at the centre of the EV transition.”

The announcement follows closely behind another high-profile partnership, which sees Engenie's rapid chargers installed across M7 Real Estate's entire out-of-town retail warehouse portfolio. The two partnerships form part of a development plan involving a number of high profile partners that will enable Engenie to grow its network to 1500 rapid chargers by 2021, following significant investment from Investec.

Sherriff added: “Partnering with household names like Marston's to offer rapid EV charging is a huge boost to our ambition of building a UK-wide public rapid charging network. Marston's' pubs and restaurants are the ideal setting for our rapid chargers, giving drivers the convenience of charging their EV while they stop to eat, check emails or take a break from their journeys. At the same time contributing locally to cleaner air for their family customer base.”
