UK’s largest EV public charging hub takes shape

22 February 2022

Oxford will soon be home to the UK’s largest public EV charging hub, helping more of the city’s residents, businesses and visitors to make the switch to cleaner, more sustainable transport.

Work is progressing at Redbridge Park & Ride, to the south west of the city, to connect the site to National Grid’s high voltage electricity transmission network and install an initial 40 fast to ultra-rapid chargers. With up to 10MW of power available, the site will have the capacity to scale up and meet the need for EV charging in the area over the coming decades.

The charging hub is due to open in Spring 2022 with:

  • 10 x Fastned chargers (up to 300kW)
  • 12 x Tesla chargers (250kW)
  • 18 x Wenea Energy chargers (7-22 kW)

With Oxford set to introduce the UK’s first Zero Emission Zone from February 2022, the site will support the city’s aims to reduce toxic air pollution levels, tackle the climate emergency, and improve the health of residents, workers and visitors in Oxford and beyond.
