Vattenfall currently operates an electric vehicle charging network in the UK and this has been acquired by Statkraft, who intends to continue powering the charging points with 100 per cent renewable energy from its own portfolio.

Statkraft, via its 100 per cent owned subsidiary, Gronn Kontakt UK, will take on the current electric vehicle charging network staff in the UK and will manage, operate and maintain the charging stations.

Over the coming months, Vattenfall will work with Statkraft to transfer the assets on a case by case basis to ensure there is no disruption to customers.

In addition, Statkraft will look to grow the existing network working with existing and new customers and provide an offering of both rapid and fast chargers for UK drivers.
