Further information and support

The Government currently provides an online interactive map detailing the availability of public charging points as well as providing funding for councils to encourage electric vehicle take up through the Go Ultra Low Cities campaign.

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles provides significant subsidies to workplaces, homeowners and councils that are prepared to install electric vehicle charging infrastructure with up to 75 per cent of the capital costs funded through various schemes.

The Energy Savings Trust makes information available online about electric vehicles and charging.
