£10m charging investment to boost electric vehicle uptake

The electric vehicle charging network continues to expand as it was announced today that the government is investing £10 million in charging infrastructure. £7.5m will be invested in workplace charging, making it easier than ever for employers to accommodate EV-owning employees, and the remaining £2.5m will go towards on-street residential chargepoints.

 

This investment is set to enhance motorists’ confidence in being able to charge their electric car (despite over 90% of charging taking place at home), and comes as monthly registrations figures reveal the ever-increasing popularity of EVs. More plug-in cars were registered from January to September this year than in the whole of 2015.

 

There are already over 11,000 public chargepoints in the UK. To find the one nearest to you, click here.
