With 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions coming from transport, it is no surprise to see Government policies shifting to support the take-up of electric vehicles.
Probably the greatest hurdle to overcome to see a mass take-up of electric vehicles relates to charging. With charging times of six hours plus it is no longer a matter of popping into a filling station.
Many people will be able to charge their vehicles at home but with over 25% of the population having no off-street parking, they will look to their workplace to charge. Indeed, some people will be influenced in terms of their choice of employer by the availability of EV charging. In addition, people will need to charge ‘on the go’, including your visitors. Workplace charging is a critical part of the move to electric vehicles.
