After the acquisition of United States-based PowerFlex Systems in September, France’s EDF Group added another piece to its electric mobility jigsaw with the acquisition of British start-up Pivot Power. Specializing in electric vehicle (EV) storage and charging infrastructure, Pivot Power has a 2 GW portfolio of battery storage projects spread across more than 40 sites in the U.K. The first of those projects – in Kemsley in the southeastern English county of Kent and in Cowley, Oxfordshire – are set to be commissioned this year. Each project will house storage batteries with a total capacity of up to 50 MW to enable the installation of 100 fast charging stations for EVs, with the offer particularly suited to large shopping centers, logistics bases, bus depots and parking lots.
