Alfa Power is delighted to announce that they have been awarded the award for “Best EV Charge Point Operator 2019” from SME News.

The company, who celebrate their 2nd anniversary in November 2019, launched the UK’s first public 60kW charger in 2018. At that time, theirs was the fastest charger open to the public. A few months later Alfa broke their own record by launching the UK’s first 100kW charger, unmatched by any other operator. This charger received an upgrade about a month later to bring it to 120kW, breaking another record which stood for well over a year.

SME News’ “Best EV Charge point operator 2019”, is a new award for 2019, and Alfa Power fought off stiff competition to win.

Firas Al Fadhili, Head of Group Alfa said: “Being at the forefront of the EV charging industry over the last 2 years has put us in the driving seat for innovation, breaking down what people perceived to be possible with the 60kW and the 100kW chargers. We are an EV charge point operator set up by EV drivers for EV drivers which we believe gives us a competitive edge.”

Over the next few months the company will start to roll out a cutting-edge 25kW DC wallbox. In tests, the wallbox showed little to no drop off in charge rate, and only came out 7 minutes slower to charge a car fully than a 50kW rapid.

“Alfa Power will continue to push the boundaries of the industry and provide widespread solutions to help more drivers to make the EV switch,” continued Firas. “Watch this space for continued exciting innovations!”

SME news has been awarding small and medium enterprises for the last 4 years. The accolade for “Best Charge Point Operator 2019” was part of the Energy and Power awards, the first year this has been run.
