With businesses under pressure to convert to electric as one of the means of lowering their carbon footprint, there is no doubt that there is still a requirement for a hugely improved infrastructure to support the move to electric.
With the sale of emission vehicles now to be phased out from 2035, a 5 year extension from the original planned date. The government has now (December 2023) announced a 12 month extension of funding through the EV Infrastructure Grant, with funding now due to come to an end on 31st March 2025.
Summary of the EV Infrastructure Grant:
An EV infrastructure grant gives you money off the cost of wider building and installation work that’s needed to install multiple charge point sockets. The work can be for sockets you want to install now and in the future. For example, an EV infrastructure grant can cover things like wiring and posts. You can get up to £15,000 or 75% off the cost of the work. The amount depends on how many parking spaces the work covers. You can receive up to 5 grants across 5 different sites, so that is upto £75,000 worth of funding.
The grant is for UK registered companies employing less than 249 people, to check your eligibility please visit the government website
