Instavolt is a provider of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

Its objective is to deliver a premium charging infrastructure that supports the electrification of the transport system throughout the country. Headed by industry veterans with over 30 years experience in the UK’s energy efficiency sector, the company is one of the best supported companies of its kind in the UK and is backed by Zouk Capital, who have invested £12m in this round. Instavolt plans to introduce rapid charging points for electric vehicles across London and the UK with an aim to exceed 3,000 locations by 2021.

The 50kW rapid charging units can provide an 80% charge in around just 30 minutes and unlike many other providers, Instavolt operates an ‘open charger’ model, so anyone can use our charging points on a pay as you go basis. The service is designed to help maximise EV take-up and is supported by Government legislation and investment that is also working to drive the sustained growth of the sector.
