EV Infrastructure Grant for Staff and Fleets

With electric fleet solutions becoming increasingly important, the EV Infrastructure grant for staff and fleets grant allows businesses to plan ahead by creating infrastructure that can accommodate ChargePoint’s as their fleet grows.

What Is The EV Infrastructure grant for staff and fleets?

The EV infrastructure grant for staff and fleets assists businesses in implementing EV charging infrastructure for their staff and fleets. Unlike the Workplace Charging Scheme, this grant provides financial support for both the infrastructure required for ChargePoint’s as well as the installation of the ChargePoint’s themselves. 

The grant covers up to 75% of the cost of installing the infrastructure needed for chargepoints to operate and for future chargepoints to be installed, as well as the cost of any chargepoints installed with a limit of £15,000 per grant.

What is considered EV Charging Infrastructure?

Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure refers to the network of components and facilities that enable electric vehicles to recharge their batteries. This infrastructure includes various elements that support the charging process for electric vehicles, making it possible for EV owners to conveniently and efficiently power up their vehicles.

Some key components of EV charging infrastructure include:

Charging Stations: These are the physical locations where EVs connect to a power source to charge their batteries. Charging stations come in various types, including Level 1, Level 2, and DC fast chargers

Power Supply: EV charging infrastructure requires a reliable source of electricity, often supplied by the local power grid. Adequate electrical infrastructure is essential to support charging station operation

Charging Cables and Connectors: Charging stations are equipped with compatible cables and connectors that allow EVs to connect to the station and transfer electricity to the vehicle’s battery

Network Connectivity: Many charging stations are equipped with network connectivity, allowing users to find and access them through mobile apps, websites, or RFID cards

Location and Accessibility: Charging infrastructure should be strategically located, including in urban areas, along highways, and in parking facilities to make EV charging accessible to a wide range of users

Payment Systems: Charging stations often require payment for the electricity consumed. Payment methods may include credit cards, mobile apps, subscription services, or prepaid cards
