RAW charging coming to National Trust sites across UK

British infrastructure provider RAW Charging has made a deal with the National Trust to install EV charging at heritage sites in England, Wales and Northern Ireland over the next three years. Once complete, RAW expects the rollout to be one of its most significant and worth £12 million.

Most chargers will be AC destination chargers, quite fittingly named. The National Trust manages sites of historical interest, such as estates, houses and gardens across the UK, to keep them open to the public.

While not mentioned in the press release, RAW signed as the first customer for ChargePoint’s latest AC column last autumn. The CP 6000 series allows various configurations through sockets, cable management, branding, display, or shuttering options. This will be important since RAW says it will work closely with National Trust to ensure the location and charger design “sympathetically integrates the infrastructure into its environment”.

Aside from the slow chargers, RAW Charging says it would also install “a small number” of DC charge points, particularly at National Trust places where visits may be shorter than standard or at locations convenient for drivers to charge during a short break from longer journeys.

The companies have yet to select specific sites.

Edward Wood, Head of Facilities Management at the National Trust, said: “We are committed to working for a healthier and more beautiful natural environment as the land and properties in our care face their biggest threat from climate change. Much of what we look after is rural, and reducing the carbon footprint of everyone who travels to our places will be critical to us being able to achieve our climate goals, including to be carbon net-zero by 2030.”
