LCP partners with PoGo to boost ultra-rapid EV charging infrastructure

LCP, the national commercial property and investment company, part of M Core, has signed a partnership deal with PoGo to boost the number of electric vehicle (EV) charging points at its sites.

The deal will see PoGo, the recently launched ultra-rapid EV ChargePoint Operator (CPO), install some 329 ultra-rapid DC charging units (each with two connectors) at 89 strategic retail developments in England, Scotland and Wales across the LCP and Evolve managed portfolios.

Work is due to begin in Q1 2024 and is expected to take 18 months to complete. Central to each of the new installations will be the PoGo Touch – with a power range of 50-600kW. It also offers an impressive 32-inch touch screen to display tariff and payment instructions as well as providing a platform for local retailers to promote in-store discounts and other incentives.

Each of the installations will be fully funded by PoGo, helping to further accelerate the rollout of the UK’s EV charging infrastructure.

James Buchanan, Group Managing Director of LCP Group, said: “Over the past couple of years we have installed 78 rapid EV charging points in 36 of our locations but working with PoGo will enable us to quadruple our EV charging offer, means customers to our retail sites will have access to 329 safe and convenient chargers, providing a charging solution to 658 EV customers. It is a young company, but we are impressed with its ambitions and are confident PoGo will help us to meet our responsibilities.”

Stuart Douglas, Managing Director of PoGo, believes the deal with LCP will better support an electric future by providing ultra-rapid charging at key retail locations.

He said: “This agreement is a perfect example of two organisations coming together to deliver a shared ambition, getting the right infrastructure in the right place, to serve the right people.”
