Government doubles funding available for electric vehicle residential chargepoints


The government aims to help people choose greener forms of travel when the coronavirus restrictions are lifted, in a further push to encourage drivers to purchase an electric vehicle.


An extra £10million - double the current funding amount - is being committed to the on street residential chargepoint scheme which will allow local authorities to install up to 7,200 devices, making it more convenient to charge and own an electric vehicle.

Further efforts to encourage drivers to make the switch include the upcoming launch of a consultation which hopes to make charging electric vehicles just as easy as filling up a traditional petrol or diesel car.


It will explore measures such as requiring rapid charging points – which are fundamental for longer journeys - to offer contactless payment, improving transparency on pricing and giving drivers better access to information about the chargepoints available on their journey.
