UK Government commits to £50 M to help businesses install charging points

by Feb 18, 2021

The government of the UK has announced an investment of 50 million pounds to expand its EV charging network and increase the number of charge points in homes and workplaces. The funding will be made available to small businesses, homeowners and people living in rented accommodations and will provide up to £350 per domestic charging point. This essentially marks the expansion of the government’s EV Home charge Scheme (EVHS) , which previously only included homeowners and has now incorporated leaseholders and rented living, and the EV Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS), which now also includes small businesses and charities to help them install charging points for staff and clients. The investment as a whole aims to expedite UK’s transition to net zero emissions by 2050 and materialize their aim to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030. Link to the news:
