About Pod Point

Pod Point are the UK’s leading provider of electric vehicle charging. The organisation have manufactured and sold over 40,000 charging points and developed one of the UK’s largest public networks, connecting electric vehicle drivers with hundreds of charging stations.

Through their network of home, workplace and public charging points they have already powered over 44 million miles of EV motoring.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Erik Fairbairn founded Pod Point in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. He saw the potential of electric vehicles as the next major mode of transportation and set himself the goal of wiring up the UK with charge points to facilitate the switch to electric vehicles from internal combustion engines.

With a passion for the environment, Pod Point believes that travel should not damage the earth, and have made it their mission to install a Pod Point in as many parking places as possible.
