Allstar Business Solutions has announced a new partnership with the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure provider, EB Charging.

EB Charging works with over 50 local authorities, NHS and commercial partners, aiming to improve infrastructure for the EV market and enable fleet operators to adopt the technology with greater ease.

By partnering with EB Charging, Allstar will add a further 261 charging sites and 282 charge points to the Allstar One Electric network.

According to Next Greencar, there are more than 215,000 pure-electric cars on UK roads and over 455,000 plug-in models, including plug-in hybrids (PHEVs).

However, research on Allstar Business Solutions’ customer base last year found that a third of fleet owners that participated in the research currently see a lack of infrastructure as a critical barrier to integrating alternatively fuelled vehicles into their operations.

‘The partnership will help address this issue with the expansion of the fuel network and will aid businesses as we work towards meeting the Government’s plans to ban sales of new petrol, diesel and some hybrid cars in the UK by 2030,’ an Allstar Business Solutions’ press release said.
