VoltShare Ltd, a leader in electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions tailored for the hospitality industry, is excited to announce the launch of a pilot EV charging program in partnership with Brakspear at their Egypt Mill venue in Nailsworth, near Stroud. This pilot marks the beginning of a potential wider rollout across Brakspear’s extensive portfolio of pubs and hospitality venues, contingent on the pilot's success.

The initiative reflects VoltShare’s commitment to advancing accessible destination charging solutions, especially in the pub sector. By equipping Egypt Mill with VoltShare’s innovative and user-friendly charging stations, the pilot program aims to enhance the visitor experience by offering convenient destination EV charging as part of their stay.

VoltShare’s unique approach means chargers are commissioned and available for guests to use within minutes, as unlike competitors, VoltShare chargers do not need months to register and set up on a back-office portal.

Sheng Liu, VoltShare’s CEO remarked, "We are thrilled to collaborate with Brakspear on this project, aligning our mission in empowering destination businesses with their renowned brand in the hospitality industry. We put our venues at the forefront, and this pilot at Egypt Mill exemplifies our mutual focus on sustainability and improving EV accessibility at pubs. We anticipate that the successful implementation here will lead to further adoption across the Brakspear estate."

The collaboration comes at a time when EV adoption is rapidly increasing in the UK, making access to convenient charging options a significant attraction for eco-conscious travellers. By integrating these facilities, Brakspear pubs can better cater to the needs of modern guests, while promoting low-emission travel as part of their wider commitment to environmental sustainability.

Meanwhile, VoltShare’s unique operating model reduces the complexity of rolling out EV chargers across multiple sites and allows property owners like Brakspear to earn the lion’s share of revenues from every customer charge.

Tony Lewis, Property Director at Brakspear, expressed support for the project, stating, "Partnering with VoltShare allows us to offer cutting-edge technology to our guests, enhancing their experience while underscoring our commitment to environmental stewardship. We are pleased to pilot this at Egypt Mill, a site that beautifully combines tradition with modern amenities."

The pilot program will be evaluated after three months to assess its impact on performance and revenue generation. A positive outcome will support plans to extend the installation of VoltShare’s charging stations across additional Brakspear locations.
