Allego launches ultra-fast EV charging hub at MK Dons Stadium in Milton Keynes.

Stadium MK is now equipped with 6 ultra-fast Allego chargers for all types of electric vehicles, including accessible facilities for wheelchair users.

MILTON KEYNES, England - Allego, the leading European provider of EV-charging infrastructure, has announced the opening of its first ultra-fast EV charging hub in the UK, located at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes. The new charging hub, now fully operational and accessible, is equipped with three dual-socket 300kW chargers, totaling six ultra-fast charge points.

Stadium MK is a state-of-the-art sporting facility, boasting a capacity of 30,500 with two tiers, and meets UEFA’s Elite Stadium specifications. It is home to the MK Dons Football Club, DoubleTree by Hilton Milton Keynes, Marshall Arena, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, MK Dons Sport and Education Trust, and local radio station MKFM. In addition to association football, the stadium also hosts large sporting events, conventions, and concerts.

The new ultra-fast charging hub has been designed to be fully accessible to all users, including wheelchair users. The charging points are equipped with facilities such as lower payment screens and wider parking bays, ensuring easy use for everyone.

With its ultra-fast charging technology, the new hub enables EV owners to recharge their vehicles in no more than 10-15 minutes, providing a convenient and efficient option for visitors to the stadium, passing traffic, and local residents.

With one of Europe’s largest networks of nearly 40,000 public charge points, Allego caters to consumers, businesses, and urban infrastructures for all types and models of electric vehicles. Allego has a strong presence in the UK, having installed 48 on-street charge points in the London Borough of Hackney in 2022, and an additional 80 in the neighboring London Borough of Newham in 2021. In the last 18 months, Allego has rolled out a total of 128 new public charge points in London alone.

In the coming years, Allego plans to expand its network rapidly across the UK and Ireland, working closely with both private landowners and local authorities. The company is set to invest in ultra-fast EV charging infrastructure, and later this year, will open new ultra-fast EV charging hubs in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Paz Sharma, Managing Director Allego UK, said: Working with Stadium MK in delivering this initiative is a fundamental first step forward in our plans to expand our ultra-fast EV-charging network in the UK, and giving the public greater confidence that they can charge their electric vehicle when and where they need. The partnership also resonated well with Stadium MK and their ambition to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a more sustainable future for everyone.
