Showcasing Success: The Story of Reserve & Charge

A standout feature in the magazine is the success story of Reserve & Charge, which exemplifies the innovative spirit and experience of being part of the Surrey Research Park community.

Reserve & Charge, formerly Accelogress, has developed a smart reservation platform for electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, addressing the critical issue of “charging uncertainty” in the UK. With their platform, EV users can now reserve charging points at specific times and locations, significantly enhancing the reliability and accessibility of EV charging infrastructure.

The growth of Reserve & Charge at Surrey Research Park was boosted by an initial grant from Innovate UK, followed by an impressive £165,000 in angel investment. Looking ahead, the company plans to pilot its project in 2024, with ambitions to secure further early-stage investment and seed funding to expand its services.
