EV charging industry group ChargeUK has launched a new report setting out how to accelerate the installation of public EV charging infrastructure.
The Accelerating the Rollout of Public Charging Infrastructure report puts forward 13 solutions for its members to boost charging under four broad areas: accelerating grid connections, improving public funding, simplifying planning, and improving the commercial viability of sites.
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 Charging Infrastructure’ 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.”
