Site Type


The Severn Valley Railway is driving towards a net zero future in partnering with econetiQ. The site has seen the delivery of an initial two 22kW charging units, with future-proofing provisions in place to increase charging capacity as the public ownership of EVs increases.  Severn Valley Railway are also assessing, with econetiQ, EV charging across their railway stations in the West Midlands.

The Kidderminster railway museum and Kidderminster train station are located next to each other, each providing multiple amenities for the public. The building for Kidderminster train station was built in the mid-1980s, as a recreation of a 1900s GWR station, and the Kidderminster railway museum was built in 1878, housed in an original warehouse. In the area, you can purchase refreshments from the Valley Suite, visit the King & Castle Pub for a hot meal or alcoholic beverage, and browse the gift shop to take home a souvenir. A short 10-minute walk would take you to the Museum of Carpet, to learn facts about how the town was once known as the first carpet capital of the world.

Severn Valley Railway was looking for a straightforward solution that would provide accessible EV charging facilities for visitors and commuters whilst contributing toward net zero. They were keen for an opportunity to generate risk-free revenue, and additionally, to future-proof the car park to enable the installation of additional chargers in line with the increasing uptake of EVs.

econetiQ achieved each of these goals for Severn Valley Railway. The charger is visible on Zapmap, Google Maps, A Better Routeplanner, ChargeTrip, Here Maps, Shell Recharge, and more. This allows drivers to view not only charge point locations, but details such as status, network, availability, accepted pay, and connector type.

When drivers arrive at Kidderminster, they are in for a quick and easy charging experience. Multiple eMobility Service Provider (EMSP) charge cards are accepted as payment at this charging site, including Paua, Allstar, and Octopus Electric Universe. Opening payment ability to a wide network of charge cards improves the charging experience for the driver.

econetiq funded the design, installation, set up and operation of Severn Valley Railways charging solution; therefore, enabling the enjoyment of the benefits of the chargers without any financial risk or exposure. econetiQ continues to support Severn Valley Railway as the demand for electric vehicle chargers grows over time.
