With the ban of sales of new petrol and diesel cars in the UK coming into place by 2030, there is an increasingly higher demand for venues to install a commercial EV charging station. There are currently more than 30,000 electric car charging stations in the UK, however it is estimated that there will be 7 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030.
Due to this, it has never been more important to make EV charging more accessible and convenient for those driving electric vehicles. With ‘range anxiety’ being a term knocking around, we have learned that people are most nervous about running out of charge mid-journey. If they know they can charge at home, the workplace or in other communal areas, we believe they are more likely to switch to an EV.
Workplace EV Charging
Imagine your employees could charge their car when they get to work, whilst they work. This will eliminate any concerns they may have about needing to find the nearest charger, or it will support those that may not be able to afford the expense of installing a charger at home. With businesses adopting a more sustainable stance, this is a great opportunity to encourage, and perhaps even incentivise your employees to switch to an electric vehicle. Check out the Workplace Charger Scheme for financial support with the installation.
Community EV Charging
Whilst there are plenty of communal car charging stations popping up around the UK, there’s opportunity to place them in more convenient locations e.g. whilst people shop, dine or enjoy entertainment (e.g. cinema). Not only does this provide added value to your customers, encouraging them to visit you, but it shows you are making an effort to be more sustainable as a company.
Residential EV Charging
Our website covers installing an EV charger at home. Not only is it the most convenient way to charge, you will also increase the value of your home. However, what about those that live in flats/apartments or those that rent? If you are a landlord or a building owner, now is a good time to consider installing a commercial EV charging point that can be accessed by your tenants. This can only make it more appealing going forward, putting you ahead of the competition.
