25 March 2024

Hampshire-based InstaVolt has activated two ultra-rapid EV chargers at N1 Reykholt Service Station near the historic Icelandic village of Reykholt.

They’re powered by 100 per cent renewable energy provided by the firm’s Icelandic partner HS Orka.

InstaVolt previously set up the country’s largest EV charging hub, installing 20 chargers at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel near Keflavik Airport, and late last year activated four chargers at Fridheimar Tomato Farm.

The company has plans for a further 300 installations in Iceland over the next two years, with an additional five sites expected by Spring 2024.

Adrian Pike, chairman of InstaVolt, said: “We’re making reliable and rapid EV charging more available throughout the country.

“This has been an excellent opportunity to help develop Iceland’s EV rapid charging infrastructure.

“It represents a significant investment by InstaVolt and has created a unique partnership where 100 per cent renewable energy will be powering Iceland’s electric vehicles.

“We look forward to continuing our rollout of rapid chargers across the country.”
