The Government is investing over £1.3 billion in accelerating the roll-out of charging infrastructure over the next four years, targeting support on rapid chargepoints on motorways and major roads, and installing more on-street chargepoints near homes and workplaces to make charging reliable and easy. Our grant schemes and the £400m Charging Infrastructure Investment Fund will see thousands more electric vehicle charge-points installed across the UK.

Budgets to support public and off-street electric vehicle charging infrastructure in each of the next three financial years have not yet been finalised. The Government’s forthcoming EV Infrastructure Strategy will define our vision for the continued roll-out of a world-leading charging infrastructure network across the UK.
