EV infrastructure: It’s a slow roll out
Local authorities are taking two and a half years to get Electric Vehicle (EV) charge points in the ground – meaning the nation is way behind the Government’s 2030 target of 300,000 charge points. So, what’s the hold-up and what can you do to accelerate this?
What’s holding things up?
At present, just 12% of the 300,000 charge points targeted by the Government have been installed. This slow pace is due to multiple factors:
Despite this, according to our Local Authority Insight Report, 31% of local authorities have no formal EV infrastructure plan in place, and 44% don’t expect to complete one in the next three years.
Public funding isn’t your only option
