Energy UK welcomes EV charge point funding

Welcoming today’s Government announcement of £500m investment in green technologies, including electric vehicle charge points, Energy UK’s chief executive, Lawrence Slade said:

Bringing down the cost of electric vehicles (EVs) and improving the charging infrastructure will be essential to the mass take-up of EVs and meeting the 2050 net-zero target. We welcome today’s announcement to invest in rapid charging points, which demonstrates Government’s commitment to decarbonising road transport.

“As argued in our Future of Energy report, a coordinated approach to infrastructure roll-out will be key to unlocking private sector investment and building a UK-wide charging network that gives consumers the confidence to make the switch to EVs."
