EA energises MFG’s first all-EV charging station

Motor Fuel Group (MFG), the market leading independent forecourt operator, has opened their first all-EV charging station in Stretford, Manchester – with support from us.

The site has been transformed from a car wash and comprises eight 150kW ultra-fast charging points, enabling battery recharge in 20-40 minutes.  

We’ve developed a common connections specification for electric vehicle (EV) charging networks, enabling operators like MFG to build their countrywide presence more efficiently. As an Independent Network Distribution Operator, we provide technical and legal expertise alongside asset values to help advance progress on Britain’s nationwide EV charging infrastructure.

By the end of 2021, we will have partnered with MFG on 30 EV charging sites, with 100s more planned as part of their dual fuel strategy to harmonise traditional fuel services with EV charging.   

Alan Hutton, Strategic Network Planning Director at MFG, commented: “Opening our first all-EV charging station is a significant milestone for MFG, as we electrify our network across the UK.

“We’ve built a strong commercial partnership with EA, founded on a fast response and ‘can-do’ attitude. As we roll out our dual-fuel strategy, they continue to play a key role in helping MFG electrify our locations which already serve millions of customers every week.”

Symon Gray, Head of Networks at EA, added: “Electric vehicle ownership is on a rapid upward curve, reflecting both consumer demand for lower carbon technologies and growing confidence in charging network availability resulting from investment in services by leading operators such as MFG.

“We’re delighted to be playing our part in creating a more sustainable approach to private mobility.”
