Osprey partners with Marston's.
Marston’s Inns and Taverns partners with Osprey Charging to become first UK pub chain to roll out rapid EV chargers
Marston’s Inns and Taverns, the UK’s leading independent and pub retailing business, today unveils a partnership with rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging network Osprey Charging to become the UK’s first pub company to roll out rapid chargers across sites nationwide.
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.
Our goal is to become the UK’s most environmentally efficient pub business. By partnering with innovative and customer-focused organisations like Osprey Charging, we’ll continue to hold ourselves and the sector to the highest possible environmental standards.
Andy Kershaw, Head of Facilities Management and Projects, Marston’s
Marston’s Inns and Taverns, which has an estate of over 1,600 pubs across the UK, makes the announcement off the back of industry-first environmental initiatives, including recently achieving its zero-waste-to-landfill goal, two years ahead of schedule.
Osprey Charging’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).
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.
Patrick Sherriff, Business Development Director, Osprey Charging
The announcement follows closely behind another high-profile partnership, which sees Osprey Charging’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 Osprey Charging to grow its network to 1500 rapid chargers by 2021, following significant investment from Investec.
