“The UK electric vehicle (EV) charging market is at a crossroads, with multiple businesses offering diverse charging solutions and many new entrants to the market. Strategic challenges lie ahead for energy providers as the electric vehicle revolution continues to gather pace.”Richard Shearer, Managing Director
The UK Government’s ambition is to end the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2040. By 2030, there could be between 8-11 million hybrid or electric cars on the UK’s roads, and over 25 million hybrid or electric cars by 2040. With battery life and performance measures improving, adoption rates are increasing and alongside this needs to come a convenient and affordable charging infrastructure.
With an increasing number of EV drivers requiring publicly accessible charge points to top up or recharge, the roll out of an EV charging infrastructure needs to be strategic and planned. Approximately one third of UK households cannot install a home charge point due to not having a driveway or garage; ultimately this will be a limit on adoption. We can help charge point operators (CPOs) when it comes to installing large-scale EV charging infrastructure.
Green Frog Connect can provide a full turn solution installation service for EV chargers. We can design and install the electrical connection. Our civils and electrical engineers can also install the charge points, providing a hassle-free, turnkey solution including any street works required.
We will install nationwide, working on all scales: From Low Voltage (LV) connections for EV chargers at the workplace, supermarkets or leisure chains through to High Voltage substations for rapid chargers and supercharging stations.

The Green Frog Connect process
1. Following an initial consultation, clients send through a site layout and any existing grid connection offer.
2. We will review within an appropriate and agreed timescale and issue a site specific quotation for services requested; our quotation can either be a simple budget quote, or we can include some high level design work if more detail is required at this stage.
3. Once you have reviewed and accepted our quotation, we’ll sign contracts before commencing any work.
4. We’ll proceed with design and subsequent construction works in line with the project programme agreed.
5. Once the project is completed and commissioned, we’ll hand it over to you to run.
6. We can assist with O&M services through the project lifecycle and even with decommissioning once your site is no longer required.
