New EV chargepoints for Bannau Brycheiniog

Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons) has had 16 new electric vehicle charge-points installed.

The charge points are funded by BMW UK through its Recharge in Nature partnership with UK National Parks.

The partnership also sees the two organisations collaborate on nature restoration and community impact projects.
The new charge-points, which are now live, are split evenly between Bannau Brycheiniog National Park’s Visitor Centre in Libanus and Craig-y-Nos Country Park.
The new charge points in Bannau Brycheiniog come just one month after both of Yorkshire’s National Parks were able to install 18 new charge-points, thanks to the Recharge in Nature partnership.
Kevin Booker, IT systems and fleet manager at Bannau Brycheiniog National Park, who has four Guinness World Record titles for EV driving, said: “Over 4 million people visit Bannau Brycheiniog National Park each year, and we know around 93 per cent of visits to UK National Parks are done so by car. It’s our responsibility to ensure the conservation of our beautiful Bannau Brycheiniog National Park and so we’re delighted to be able support zero emission car journeys while driving here.”
Graham Biggs, Corporate Communications Director, BMW UK, said: “We’re so pleased to see this latest expansion of the EV charging network go live as part of our Recharge in Nature partnership. This means EV drivers can explore this outstanding National Park with greater confidence and with no driving emissions. We hope this new infrastructure will support visitors, as well as those living and working at Bannau Brycheiniog National Park.”
