Virtus Energy Partners With Double Parking Systems 
14 May 2021

Virtus Energy has announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Double Parking Systems, to provide more convenient charging points for electric vehicles in the UK. 

Electric vehicles (EVs) are set to become a leading player in the automotive game throughout 2021 and beyond. It’s a market sector that will grow rapidly over the next decade, with a government-backed initiative to stop the production of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030. 

The size of the EV market in the UK increased dramatically in 2020 with a total of 108,250 vehicles sold – an180 per cent year on year rise. In 2019, EV sales made up around 1.6 per cent of total car purchases in the UK. That has now increased to 6.6 per cent of all vehicles sold, and the current momentum shows no sign of slowing down. 




More Charging Points Needed


More EV vehicles on the roads means more charging points are essential, and industry leaders Virtus Energy will make a significant impact thanks to their new partnership with Double Parking Systems. 

Double Parking Systems offer total parking solutions for commercial and residential projects and practical parking solutions for existing and new builds. Under the terms of the agreement, Virtus Energy will be an exclusive partner on all matters relating to the design, supply and installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. 

There are currently 7,000 parking spaces under management. Virtus Energy will supply and install electric vehicle charging points to Double Parking’s customers, and they will also become responsible for advising and supporting future customers in designing and implementing their requirements. 

As a nationwide EV charging infrastructure specialist that offers home, commercial and developer charging installation solutions, Virtus Energy makes the switch to electric easy, with end-to-end EV charging installation and support. 

Peter Varney, Chair of Virtus Energy, said: “This is an exciting new partnership, and with more and more developers needing to find innovative parking solutions on their developments, we believe what we have to offer is unrivalled in this sector”. 

David Warr, Chair of Double Parking Systems, added: “ This partnership offers our existing and future customers a ready-made solution to their electric vehicle infrastructure needs. We spoke to a number of companies in this space, and Virtus's forward-thinking approach made our final decision very easy."
