Designated drivers with electric cars will soon be able to charge their vehicles at Marston’s pubs.

The pubco has entered a partnership with electric vehicle (EV) rapid charging network operator Engenie, which will see 400 chargers installed across the UK.

Renewable energy totally powers the chargers, which the pubco said would help reduce up to 4.8 tonnes of NOx (nitrogen oxides) pollution from UK roads annually.

Andy Kershaw, head of facilities management and projects said the group was working hard to be the country’s most environmentally efficient pub business.

He said: “All of our new-build pubs are already running at the highest eco-efficiency across the sector, so to be able to secure the partnership with Engenie has been incredible and through innovation has allowed us to continue driving the highest possible environmental standards.”

Environmental mission

Engenie business development director Patrick Sherriff added: “Our national network of rapid chargers is having a significant positive impact on local air quality; another feather in the cap of the already impressive long-terms environmental commitments at Marston’s.

“At the same time, our easy-to-use rapid EV charging points will put the customer at the centre of the EV transition.”

The Bakehouse pub in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, will be the first place to have the chargers, which will continue across all of the pubco's 200 sites until completion in 2020.

Electric charging points were introduced at several pubs owned by Fuller's​ and JW Lees​ this year.
