National Grid plans electric car rapid charging power network on motorway sites

The Financial Times reported this week that the National Grid is considering plans to install rapid charging points for electric vehicles at 50 strategic motorway locations across the UK. The charge points would provide up to 350KW of power and would allow a driver to charge their car in five to 12 minutes, feeding directly from the electricity transmission network.

The strategic placement of the sites would mean that more than 90 per cent of EV drivers would be able to drive in any direction from any location in the UK and be within 50 miles of an ultra-rapid charger.
