Delivering electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the UK

This paper sets out the current state of play in the roll-out of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across the UK, including the policy drivers and challenges. It makes several recommendations and highlights areas for further consideration.

Specific recommendations include:

  • A review of the strategies and incentives for EV uptake and charging infrastructure in the UK is required to ensure appropriate alignment and the optimum use of available resources.
  • Ultra Low Emission Vehicles are only as 'clean' as the means of fuel generation. Stable and consistent policymaking are both critical for increasing renewable electricity and the storage technologies that will enable full system impact.
  • Government should work more closely with Distributed Network Operators to identify solutions to overcome slow delivery potentially holding up EV charging infrastructure roll-out. This should include exploring the potential for EV manufacturers themselves to provide greater supporting resource.
