Ecotricity sells Electric Highway charging network

Ecotricity has sold its Electric Highway operation, the UK charging network for electric cars, to Gridserve.

Gridserve, in turn is a business that Hitachi is understood to be taking ownership of, will be ramping up investment in the Electric Highway with the replacement of all the existing chargers on the network with new technology and contactless payment.

Dale Vince OBE, founder of Ecotricity, said: “The Electric Highway needs a growth spurt, to make sure that it stays ahead of driver demand. For this the Electric Highway needs an owner with access to serious funding and real commitment to the cause.”
