Addison Lee – one of London’s largest private transport providers – has partnered with JustPark to support drivers in the transition to electric by providing them with exclusive access to off-street charging points.

The partnership follows Addison Lee’s announcement last month that it will transition its standard fleet to fully electric by 2023, and gives drivers access to FleetCharge – a new charging solution from JustPark that provides off-street charging locations for fleet drivers.

For drivers who work with Addison Lee and do not have off-street parking available to them, JustPark will secure a parking location within a 5-minute walk of their home and install a conveniently placed charging unit. For those drivers who already have access to off-street parking, FleetCharge will be available to support the installation process at their homes.

The FleetCharge points will be installed by green energy tech pioneer Octopus Energy, and drivers who rent a JustPark parking space will be given exclusive use of the charger, powered by low cost, renewable electricity also provided by Octopus, while reducing the time spent searching for an available public charging point.

Addison Lee’s CEO, Liam Griffin, commented: ‘‘Following our pledge to electrify our fleet by 2023, we know how important it is to support our partner drivers with suitable charging solutions for their vehicles. That’s why we have chosen to partner with industry innovator, JustPark, as the first fleet to adopt its FleetCharge product.

“Many vehicle owners in London and UK cities lack access to off-street parking, and the adoption of electric vehicles will only succeed if drivers have access to a mix of charging options. We hope that our partnership with JustPark encourages businesses and consumers to take similar, innovative steps to help our city rapidly shift to EVs. We therefore welcome further co-operation between TfL, London boroughs, energy companies, charging providers and businesses as we work together to bolster London’s charging infrastructure at pace.”

Transport Minister, Trudy Harrison, said: "I am delighted to hear about this forward-thinking partnership, with Addison Lee leading the way by supporting its fleet drivers to make the all-important switch to cleaner vehicles.

“Since 2020, the Government has committed nearly £3.5bn to support the electric vehicle revolution and I hope this scheme encourages other businesses to follow in these footsteps as we work towards our net-zero targets.”

Anthony Eskinazi, Founder & CEO at JustPark, said: “We are delighted to help accelerate Addison Lee’s journey to becoming fully electrified, while helping to drastically reduce the fleet’s carbon impact and pollution in London. Our FleetCharge solution knocks down barriers to EV adoption and will enable and encourage more fleets to electrify faster than they ever thought possible, and this partnership is just the beginning.”
