Power by Britishvolt Ltd (in Administration) (“the Company”)

On 17 January 2023, the Company entered Administration and Dan Christopher Hurd, Joanne Honor Robinson and Alan Michael Hudson, partners of EY Parthenon, were appointed as Joint Administrators (“the Administrators”). The appointment was made by the directors in accordance with paragraph 22 of Schedule B1 to the Insolvency Act 1986.

No other entity in the BritishVolt group is in Administration.

On 26 February 2023, the Joint Administrators completed a sale of the majority of the business and assets of the Company to Recharge Production UK Limited (“the Purchaser”) for an undisclosed sum.

Further information and documents regarding the Administration will be uploaded to this website in due course. Queries specifically relating to the Administration should be emailed to pbvadministration@uk.ey.com


The remaining employees of the Company have been transferred to the Purchaser, in accordance with the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (“TUPE”)

In the event that you were an employee of the Company and you require any further information or assistance in relation to the Administration, please contact the Administrators by email at pbvemployees@uk.ey.com


It is anticipated that the creditors of the Company will not be repaid in full.

Given the above, it is expected that there will be no funds available for distribution to shareholders (and the Company’s shares have no value following the appointment of the Administrators).

I regret that no funds are available to maintain the register of members and it is not possible to register any transfers of shares or changes in shareholder details.


Please note that debts incurred by the Company before our appointment will claims against the Company. Any sums due to the Company arising after our appointment must be paid in full and without set-off against any debts incurred by the Company prior to our appointment.

If you wish to make a claim as a creditor, you may do so by requesting a Unique ID by sending an email to pbvadministration@uk.ey.com. Alternatively, you may complete and return the proof of debt claim form located in the 'Company Documents' section below and send it by email to pbvadministration@uk.ey.com, Please ensure that all documents in support of your claim are provided alongside your proof of debt claim form.
