Fastned, Tesla and Pivot Power to build superhub in Oxford

Fast charging company Fastned, Oxford City Council, Pivot Power, Tesla and Wenea are to build and operate a fast charging 'Energy Superhub' with up to 14 fast chargers and 12 Tesla Supercharger stalls, for a combined number of 26 fast chargers.

The station will be powered by energy from the sun and wind, generated partly on-site by a solar canopy, and will be one of Europe's most powerful electric vehicle charging hubs, with up to 10MW of power available for future expansion. It is the first of a number of similar sites planned by Pivot Power across the UK.

“Energy Superhub Oxford is a great initiative by the City Council that supports us in working towards that goal. We need hundreds more and will therefore continue to engage with landowners and partners such as Pivot Power across the UK. Big stations are the only way to provide charging capacity to the exponentially growing number of EVs coming to our roads,” said Michiel Langezaal, CEO of Fastned.
