The last few years have witnessed a huge surge in the demand for Electric Vehicles in the UK and sources predict that by 2030, 60% of all new vehicles sold will be "plug-in" models. This trend represents a significant opportunity for UK businesses.

Historically, charging stations for electric vehicles have been in or near prime locations, but as the market for EV's increases, so too does the need for charging stations at hyper-local level and business owners are beginning to recognise the multi-faceted benefits that EV charge point installation could bring to their businesses. 

Benefits to Businesses

Corporate Social Responsibility: The true implications of climate change are becoming increasingly clear, and environmental initiatives that aim to protect and preserve our world for future generations hold great significance to people, communities and businesses the world over. Organisations who install charging points make a physical demonstration of their commitment to sustainability and make a powerful impact on the employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders that visit their premises.

Employee Engagement & Attraction: Having access to workplace charging is a leading-edge benefit that sets organisations apart from competitors, playing a key role in both the attraction and retention of great people.

Incentives for Company Car Fleets: So far, almost 70% of plug-in hybrid cars purchased in the UK have been bought by company fleets. Falling purchase prices, environmental factors and tax incentives make EVs the logical choice for many company car fleets.

Early Adopter Benefits: Government grants are available for early adopters of car charging station installations. The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) reduces the purchase and installation cost of a new workplace charging station by up to 75% and businesses can claim for up to a maximum of 20 charging stations under the scheme. As the UK charging network expands, it’s unlikely these incentives will remain in place indefinitely.
