Fulcrum and ChargePoint Together for UK’s EV Ambitions


Fulcrum, the UK’s leading independent utility infrastructure and services provider, has partnered up with ChargePoint, the world’s leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, to support the Government’s ambitions to grow Britain’s network of EV charging stations. Both companies will deliver an end-to-end service for commercial and residential development customers, while expanding their capabilities.

Fulcrum will actively market its holistic EV infrastructure service, including the supply and installation of EV charging stations, with Fulcrum designing, installing and owning the necessary electrical infrastructure. In addition, the company will become a ChargePoint recommended infrastructure provider to support ChargePoint’s operations in the UK.

“We are at the beginning of what is a rapid expansion in the uptake of electric vehicles, with car manufacturers and governments across the world placing an emphasis on developing the technology and associated infrastructure,” said Martin Harrison, CEO of Fulcrum.

“The installation and management of EV charging points is a natural development for Fulcrum, building on our utility infrastructure expertise to enter this exciting new market that has the potential to change the face of transport. Thanks to our partnership with ChargePoint, Fulcrum will be at the forefront of this growing technology,” he continued.

The partnership will also help overcome the existing challenges of installing EV charging stations, such as dealing with multiple parties. ChargePoint’s decade of industry expertise, combined with Fulcrum’s capabilities and licence to own and adopt electrical infrastructure will also speed up the installation process.

“With more than a decade of experience in the electric vehicle space and a quickly expanding presence in Europe, we are excited to partner with a forward-thinking company like Fulcrum to help accelerate the adoption of EV’s in the UK and beyond,” said Christopher Burghardt, Managing Director for Europe, ChargePoint, Inc.

The electric vehicle market, and the associated supply chain, is expected to grow rapidly over the coming years as the UK Government and public continue to embrace the quickly developing technology. In the 2017 Budget, the Chancellor, Phillip Hammond, pledged to create a £400m fund for a national charging network and subsidies for vehicle purchases.
