Leclanché inks supply deal with U.K.'s EV Network for batteries that buffer the effect of EV fast charging

September 28, 2018 | Case Study

The U.K., as part of a $1 billion wave of funding toward low-carbon transport, is working to deploy electric vehicle (EV) fast-chargers around the country. One of the benefiting companies of this funding is a relatively new U.K.-based startup that goes by the generic name of The EV Network. This company aims to deploy about 10 EV charging sites this year, 50 by 2020, and 200 by 2025. As part of this work, The EV Network has partnered with European battery supplier Leclanché, a relatively small player in the space that looks to differentiate itself via exceptional battery cycle life and safer battery chemistries. The EV Network's strategic approach is to emulate the current car-refueling model that consumers are used to, focused on inner-city locations with multiple charging stalls, including car parks as well as disused gas stations.
