ChargeUK publishes new research on accelerating the rollout of charge points



ChargeUK publishes new research report: ‘ACCELERATING THE INSTALLATION OF PUBLIC CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE’


ChargeUK, the voice of the UK’s EV charging industry, has today set out a series of steps to further accelerate the installation of public EV charging infrastructure.


Ian Johnston, chair of ChargeUK said:


“Our members are already putting charge points in the ground at record pace and will spend £6 billion before 2030 on ensuring the UK has the right charging solutions in the right place.


“But we want to go further and faster to make the UK the best place in the world to drive and charge an EV.


“We welcome steps the government has already committed to including pledges to improve connectivity and streamline planning. We firmly believe that ‘Accelerating the Rollout of Public Charge Points’ provides a framework for all stakeholders to work together to achieve our common goal – giving drivers the confidence they need to go electric and put the UK at the forefront of this exciting transition.”


The report puts forward 13 solutions that ChargeUK members believe would boost their work to install the right charging solutions in the right place even more quickly.

The solutions come under four areas of focus -

  1. Accelerating grid connections

  2. Improving public funding and procurement

  3. Simplifying planning, permits and consultations

  4. Improving the commercial viability of sites

The ‘ACCELERATING THE INSTALLATION OF PUBLIC CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE’ report can be found here.
