Hitachi Capital UK boosts GRIDSERVE by £10m grant: Hitachi Capital UK has contributed £10 million in GRIDSERVE Holdings Limited, the parent firm of GRIDSERVE Sustainable Energy Ltd, that not long age offered what is believed to be the UK’s first ultra-fast electric forecourt in Essex.
The team plan to work as a group to create infrastructure to speed up the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs).

Robert Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC, stated: “Our intention is to become a market leader for EV adoption and today’s announcement, along with our commitment that 20% of our assets will support sustainable business projects over the next five years, shows our determination to deliver on that promise.”
Toddington Harper, Chief Executive Officer of GRIDSERVE Sustainable Energy Ltd, said: “Having Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC as a shareholder in GRIDSERVE represents a major milestone and landmark moment in GRIDSERVE’s journey to deliver sustainable energy and move the needle on climate change.”
