Electric vehicle charging installations
Whether you’re an architect, developer or business owner, electrical vehicle charging installations can provide you with an opportunity to meet your environmental targets.
The UK has a commitment for almost all cars and vans to be zero emission by 2050. The Government is already trying to encourage electrical vehicles with a delivery plan in London, stating that all new developments with five parking spaces or more must equip 20% of those spaces with electric car charging points.
A report from the Department of Transport identified that recharging and lack of charger availability was seen as a deterring factor in the purchasing of electric vehicles. However, with support from the Government for electric vehicles, you now have the opportunity to introduce electric vehicle installations to your building and reduce your energy consumption.
OLEV, the office for low emission vehicles, is now providing government support in the form of:
- Electric Vehicle Home charge Scheme
- Approved Charge point Model List
- Grants for the wider public estate plus residential on-street
- Mandatory EV car park spaces Investment incentives
- £40m Infrastructure Investment in Nottingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes and London
- EV Purchase incentives
- Vehicle tax incentive only for zero emission vehicles
Electric Vehicles are a great opportunity for your business to help demonstrate your environmental credentials to clients and shareholders. They are also cheaper to run than petrol, and allow employees to make substantial savings on tax. For your business, the charge units themselves are inexpensive to run and require very little servicing.
