How does your local authority fair when it comes to the new league table of EV Chargers published by the Government?
It may seem a little bit ruthless to name and shame but in my opinion, it really is a good idea to share this. If the government is looking to be carbon neutral by 2030, they need to produce figures to help Fleet Managers and business owners understand the implications for their drivers and businesses.
According to the table published last week, there are currently 15,116 charge points in the UK. There are an estimated 25 million charge points needed to meet demand in by 2030 (some way to go).
Some regions in this list really need to make it a priority. Whether they like it or not, the EV revolution is here and here to stay! The government are offering £5million in funding to support installations which is a good start, and double the amount previously on offer!
Companies like Pod Point, Insta Volt, Connected Kerb and BP Chargemaster are on the case and I am seeing more and more of their charge points on offer. Let's get the UK in the best place to be carbon zero by 2030. I'd love to see more EVs on the road. Local authorities... what are you waiting for! Install these charge points to help the EV revolution!
