Electric Vehicle Charging Points
We’re now installing throughout the UK in this growing sector.
A growing market
With the ever-improving batteries and EV hardware resulting in notable increases in the real-world range of electric vehicles (EVs), there has been a steady increase in the number of electric and hybrid electric cars registered across the EU in recent years.
In particular, the number of hybrid electric-petrol cars in 2017 (1.5 million) was almost seven times the number recorded in 2013 (0.2 million).
Setting a mandatory CO2 target of 95g/km, and carbon emissions reduction targets set by the EU that will require CO2 from all new cars to be lowered 15% by 2025, and 37.5% by 2030 compared to 2021 levels – mean that the shift to EV production is inevitable.
This, in conjunction with quicker charging, often means there’s less justification for range anxiety.
Similarly, the UK’s charging infrastructure continues to expand and become more easily accessed.
Although there are over 13,000 public charging points in the UK – five times more than in 2011 – they’re still dramatically outnumbered by petrol stations.
However, that number is going to grow quickly, and it’ll be easier than ever to find them.
