London EVCP network doubles in size
The number of electric vehicle charge points (EVCPs) in London has doubled to more than 500 in the last 12 months.
Alex Williams, director of city planning for Transport for London, said to Electrical Review, “Rapid charging points will play a key part in decarbonising transport and the shift to cleaner vehicles. To help drivers make the switch from older, more polluting vehicles to electric, they need the confidence that plugging in will be convenient and hassle-free.”
However, data from energy services firm Centrica showed that overall, UK councils do not plan to install enough EVCPs to meet demand by 2030, when the sale of new internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles will be banned.
