UK: London train stations plug in to electric cars

Two of London’s busiest train stations are to become EV friendly with the installation of eight charging points between them. Euston station will gain five dual socket GE DuraStation pedestal AC while Victoria will gain three, each providing 32amp Type 2, mode 3 fast charging for electric cars.

London Euston station Installed by ChargePoint Services Ltd, all the charging stations are GPRS networked and RFID compliant with the Source London and Plugged in Places (PiP) schemes, and are monitored and managed via ChargePoint’s back office system, CPMS.

Network Rail says the installation of the points at its stations are part of its on-going sustainability strategy, which aims to make commuting via the rail network the greenest way to travel.

Liz Ratcliffe, Account Manager for car parking at Network Rail, said: “Rail is already one of the greenest forms of travel and our strategy aims to make it greener still. Providing charge points for electric vehicles at our car parks will be a boost for rail users who have already chosen to use environmentally cleaner vehicles for their journey to and from the station. Enabling our users to recharge their electric vehicles at the station car park facilitates their choice to use environmentally cleaner vehicles throughout their commute, not just for the train part of the journey, but door-to-door.”
