Research finds over half of workplaces are still yet to offer Electric Vehicle charging

A recent YouGov survey revealed that over 52% of surveyed Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers did not have access to a charge point at their place of work. This means that when electric vehicle drivers are commuting to their office, they're having to charge at public EV charging stations, which can be expensive, or they're charging when they get home during peak hours. In order to reduce costs for EV drivers, workplace charging is necessary. By charging during working hours, drivers can charge at off peak times, in a convenient location, and drive home with a full battery.

One in five EV drivers primarily work from home, but it is believed many are put off working in the office by the lack of charging at work. The place of work should be seen as an extension of the home office where amenities are provided to make commutes more attractive.

The government aims to build more than 270,000 new public chargers by 2030 in order to keep up with anticipated demand following the announcement of the petrol and diesel ban and the increase in popularity of EV's.

A total of £1.6 billion has been put aside for the chargers. The aim is to support people without access to off-street charging and improve fast charging infrastructure for long journeys by increasing the number of public charging points from around 30,000 to 300,000. Once installed, the UK will have around five times as many chargers as it does fuel pumps.
