Public EV charge point provision is the classic chicken and egg dilemma. Greater availability of public charge points helps encourage drivers to switch to EVs. But the returns from power utilisation are not commercially attractive until EV ownership – and charge point – usage is high. Grant funding from Government is therefore central to supporting the provision of the UK’s public EV charging infrastructure, particularly in locations where EV usage is low. We have extensive practical experience in grant funding applications to support new charging infrastructure, with dozens of successful grant applications. Currently there are two significant government funding opportunities for public bodies, designed to cover part of the cost of charger installation.
