The £75 million rollout will see over 150 high-powered EV charging hubs open across the UK over the next four years, revolutionizing the UK's EV charging infrastructure. Each hub will host up to 12 Kempower rapid chargers, totaling 1,500 units nationwide, and will be the first facilities in the UK to host multiple high-power Kempower chargers on a single site.

Kempower has been selected by Osprey Charging to provide fast charging technology at over 150 high-powered EV charging hubs that will open across the UK by 2025. A total of 1,500 of the company's 150KW rapid chargers will be installed across the sites, which will be located on strategic A-roads and adjacent to motorways.
Charging anxiety - the fear of hard to use, unreliable or unavailable charging infrastructure - is a major concern for EV drivers and a crucial barrier to greater EV adoption. Osprey's new multi-charger, power-optimizing hubs will address this challenge by ensuring that drivers can easily and quickly charge without having to wait for a charger to be available.
Osprey's hubs will be located near well-known retailers and popular amenities, including Costa Coffee, Lidl, Aldi, Pizza Hut, KFC and Curry's PC World, allowing drivers to use facilities while charging their EV. Each Kempower rapid charger is capable of adding 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
