InCharge in the UK

Vattenfall currently operates an electric vehicle charging network in the UK and this has been acquired by Statkraft, who intend to continue powering the charging points with 100% renewable energy from its own portfolio.

Statkraft, via its 100% owned subsidiary Gronn Kontakt UK Ltd, will take on the current InCharge staff in the UK and will manage, operate and maintain the charging stations.

Tomas Björnsson, Head of E-mobility at Vattenfall said,

“Vattenfall is taking stock and changing its focus to ensure that its transport offer in the UK is fit for purpose. We will do our utmost to ensure that customers experience limited disruption at this time. Statkraft are a good fit for our current electric vehicle business in the UK. They intend to continue to power the charging points with 100% renewable energy, which fits well with our purpose to enable fossil free living within one generation.”

“Vattenfall continues with its international electric vehicle charging growth and aims to make electric driving the new norm in North-western Europe. Exiting the UK market with our electric vehicle charging offer does not impact our continued growth in the markets we are active in, but rather allows for further focus.”

“Vattenfall has invested over £3.5bn in UK renewable generation and we will continue to invest in developing its core UK renewable power generation, heating, B2B sales and distribution businesses. With this, we hope to play a valuable role in supporting the UK government’s commitment to reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
