Pod Point Open Charge Network Statistics

We believe travel shouldn’t damage the earth. That’s why we're building one of the UK’s largest public EV charging networks to make it easy for drivers to adopt zero emissions transport.

Plug-in vehicle sales are surging with over 1,640,241 registered so far on UK roads. All of these drivers need to charge when they are out and about. That’s why we’re adding new charging locations to the Open Charge network on a daily basis.

The charts below reflect the growth of Pod Point’s public charging stations across the UK. This includes the total number of Open Charge charging stations, connectors by speed and the carbon emissions saved over the last 3 years.

Open Charge charging stations over the last year

The graph above shows the total number of Open Charge public charging stations by quarter.

Charging connectors by charging speed (rapids, fast and slow)

The graph above shows the breakdown of total connectors by Slow, Fast, Rapid chargers for the last year. From June 2016-17 we have installed 4 rapids, 210 fast and 19 slow charging stations. This continues to be added to daily.

Carbon Offset

Since July 2014 we have offset 3983tCO2e, that is a total of 8.389,781 kWh of electricity which passed through our network.

To put it into perspective 3983tCO2e is roughly equivalent to:

  • 792 economy return flights London to Sydney
  • 2450 economy return flights London to New York
  • 13.5 million miles driven by an average diesel car

The graph above shows the breakdown of CO2 emissions saved over the last 3 years.
