EB Charging joins Allstar’s EV charging network

Allstar Business Solutions has partnered with EB Charging to add an additional 200 electric vehicle (EV) charging points to the Allstar One Electric Network.

The partnership will begin with 59 charge points, before the rest of EB’s network is added over the coming months as it is upgraded to accept the Allstar One Electric Card.

EB is working with more than 50 local authority, NHS and commercial partners, to improve infrastructure for the EV market and enable fleet operators to adopt the technology with greater ease.

By joining Allstar Business Solutions’ network, the company says it will be able to provide greater access to compatible charging points.

Paul Holland (pictured), managing director of UK Fuel at Fleetcor UK, said: “It is clear that UK fleet operators are eager to incorporate even more EV into their businesses. They just need a better infrastructure to support the transition. Collaborations, such as our partnership with EB Charging, will help make this a reality by offering greater access to charging points through our Allstar One Electric card.”

The latest EV statistics show there are more than 455,000 plug-in models on UK roads, however Allstar SME customers see a lack of infrastructure as a critical barrier to integrating alternative fuel vehicles into their operations.

Dan O’Hara, CEO at EB Charging, added: “Our main target is to reduce the UK’s collective carbon footprint and improve air quality by helping people move from petrol and diesel to electric vehicles and more sustainable energy. This switch is made so much easier by improving access and the availability of electric charging points.”

“This switch to electrification for fleets is also crucial in meeting these targets and today’s partnership with Allstar Business Solutions is an exciting next step on this journey. Our joint goal of improving access to charging points will help drive our shared success and make the EV driving experience easier and more cost-effective.”
