Box Energi says its planned EV fast charging network in the U.K. will be one of the largest single-country DC networks in the world, and that it will be supplied with 100% renewable energy. Drive Energi is a proposed new EV rapid charging network for the U.K., with a stated 2,500 locations planned to be installed by 2025. The network’s parent company, Box Energi Group Limited, says it will be a mix of public and private charging solutions, supplied with 100% renewable energy. However, no additional details on source generation was provided by the company. Box Energi announced yesterday that it signed a deal with EV DC fast charging manufacturer, Tritium, to be the sole supplier for the network. At least 100 sites are expected to be installed by the end of January 2020. The planned network for each site will have one to two Tritium Veefil-RT 50kW DC rapid chargers, which the company claims can allow drivers to add 60 miles of range in just 20 minutes.
