EV charging services – businesses could be sitting on thousands of pounds of potential revenue

A new online calculator has launched to show businesses how they could create an additional revenue stream through EV charging services.

Created by clean energy solutions provider, egg, the calculator shows the potential revenue UK businesses could generate by providing electric vehicle charging stations for public use.

There are now over 1,000,000 fully electric cars on UK roads, along with a further 620,000 plug-in hybrids and demands for a better infrastructure to support members of the public continues to grow. Businesses can utilise outdoor areas or existing car parks to provide a much needed service in an underused space up to 24 hours a day and after an initial cost for installation which can be paid back, calculations from egg predict that having five chargers open to the public 24 hours a day could generate up to £800,000 in revenue in just one year and smaller spaces could see up to £300,000.

Mike Hallam, CEO of egg said: “Our EV calculator empowers business leaders to make informed decisions by clearly illustrating the financial and environmental benefits of integrating EV charging. Garden centres, cinema car parks, underused shopping centres and similar businesses could be sitting on thousands of pounds of potential revenue. Not only will an EVC facility encourage  footfall to the chargers, businesses could also see an increased interest in their core business as drivers look to spend time at the destination whilst their car charges.”  

Launched in 2022, Leeds-based business egg provides clean energy solutions to B2B and B2C customers in the form of electric vehicle chargers, solar panels and battery storage.
