Government announces EV workplace charging grant

Fri 4th November 2016
Chargemaster, the UK’s premier supplier of electric vehicle (EV) chargers, welcomes the government announcement today of a £600 grant supporting the installation of dual charging points at workplaces.“This is great news for companies that have adopted EVs into their fleets, or wish to provide charging facilities for visitors,” commented David Martell, Chief Executive of Chargemaster. “There are now more than 80,000 electric vehicles on British roads – many of those are owned and run by businesses.

This new £600 grant from government will allow more companies to install charging points at workplace locations for a fraction of the cost. Chargemaster operates the UK’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network. Its public POLAR charging infrastructure has more than 5,000 chargers across the UK, and the company has installed over 30,000 homecharger units.
Martell continued, “So far, we have installed over 30,000 home charging points over the last four years. I think that this new government support will stimulate the demand from companies and help them adopt ultra-low emission vehicles with charging facilities at the workplace.”Chargemaster designs and manufacturers its charging points in the UK as well as having a nationwide installation team. Its products are recommended by all major car manufacturers, including Mitsubishi, BMW, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Tesla, amongst others.Media contacts
