Award winning InstaVolt, the UK’s largest rapid EV charging network, is gearing up for a new phase of growth to deliver on its commitment to install 11,000 ultra rapid chargers in the UK and Ireland.

InstaVolt will also install 5,000 chargers across Spain and Portugal and more than 300 in Iceland, with the aim of being the benchmark for reliable, contactless EV charging across the world,

Looking to the future, the company today announced that Chief Executive Adrian Keen is stepping down after more than seven years at the helm. In that time Keen has overseen InstaVolt secure its unrivalled position in the industry.

InstaVolt chairman Adrian Pike said. “I would like to thank Adrian for his commitment and hard work over many years, which has delivered a pipeline of more than 16,000 chargers to fulfil its goal to be the largest CPO in Europe. He leaves his post with InstaVolt in great shape having just installed a record number of rapid chargers in the first quarter of 2024.”

“Going forward Adrian will remain with us as a senior advisor, which will not only ensure continuity, but he will also be bringing his considerable experience to the development of our international operation.”

To take InstaVolt through the next phase of sustained growth, the board has appointed Delvin Lane as the new CEO.

Lane, who has spent 26 years in senior management roles in the energy service and energy efficiency sectors joins the changepoint operator from eEnergy Group plc where he was the Managing Director of Energy Management.

During a highly successful seven-year term at eEnergy, Lane managed a tremendous period of growth which saw the original business Utility Team, which he joined as CEO in 2016, grow from a small energy operator to the fifth largest in the UK. Along the way, Lane led two buy outs, first to eEnergy in 2021 and, secondly, in January 2024, when he sold it out of eEnergy to DCC plc.

Speaking of his new role at InstaVolt, Lane said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the market leader at this exciting time in the company’s growth.”

Adrian Pike said: “Delvin brings with him vast experience of the energy sector. Combined with his track record of delivering high growth for companies, this will prove invaluable as InstaVolt embarks on its next chapter of expansion in home and international markets.”

Anna Sundell, who sits on the InstaVolt board as Director representing majority shareholder EQT, said: “I am delighted to welcome Delvin to InstaVolt as the new CEO. He is an excellent addition to the senior management team, and I look forward to working alongside him on InstaVolt’s journey of growth and commercial excellence.”
