RAW Charging is to install and operate electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment for Aviva Investors at over 60 UK sites, with potential for a further 240.
These sites include retail, commercial and industrial assets in the Aviva Investors managed portfolio, with 21 charging points already installed at six sites. A further 16 sites are in the immediate 2021 pipeline, with each site to be equipped with a mix of AC fast chargers and DC rapid chargers where appropriate.
An additional 240 locations have been identified as having the potential for RAW-installed and managed chargers to be added over the medium term.
Ed Dixon, head of ESG, real assets, at Aviva Investors, said: “As we continue our journey towards reaching net zero across our Real Assets portfolio by 2040, providing a network of EV charging points futureproofs our assets and aligns with our ambition to lead in the creation of a better and more sustainable economy, whilst encouraging lower carbon behaviours.”
The new partnership follows RAW Charging acquiring Franklin EV earlier this month, taking on 128 EV charging ports currently owned and managed by Franklin, as well as a further 370 managed EV chargers.
The company has also previously signed a partnership with Greene King for the installation of chargers across 800 managed pubs and hotels, as well as a partnership with McArthurGlen for the installation of chargers at designer outlets across the UK and Europe.
