£10m Charging Investment to Boost Electric Vehicle Uptake

161014sourcewestchargingThe 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.
