Electric Vehicle Market

THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE MARKET IN THE UK IS GROWING, AND IT’S GROWING FAST

The UK Government has launched a strategy called Road to Zero, where it aims to enable a massive roll-out of the infrastructure to support the electric vehicle revolution. The ambitious plan, with £1.5 billion invested, provides electricians with a number of opportunities to deliver the following in the Road to Zero Strategy:
  • A push for chargepoints to be installed in newly built homes and new lamp posts, potentially providing a massive expansion of the plug-in network
  • The launch of a £400 million Charging Infrastructure Investment Fund to help accelerate the roll-out of the charging infrastructure
  • A new £40 million programme to develop and trial innovative, low cost wireless and on-street charging technology
  • Providing up to £500 for electric vehicle owners to fit a chargepoint in their home through the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme
  • Increase the value of grants available to workplaces for chargepoint installations
  • Extend the Plug-In Car and Van Grants at current rates, and in some form until at least 2020, allowing consumers to continue to make significant savings when purchasing a new electric vehicle
