Pain Points: EV charging in the UK - 2021 and beyond

By Guest - October 29, 2020

Using FoI requests to 379 UK local councils, and a survey of 1665 UK residents, our report paints a picture of the state of electric vehicle charging in the UK, showing how far it still has to go in order to reach the "boringly reliable" dependability required for mass-market adoption. Our research shows:

  • Councils lack funding to drive the EV revolution
  • Less than half the UK's councils received funding to deploy or maintain EV charging in the last year
  • Investment in EV charging is more than 4x higher in Scotland than in England, per capita
  • Regional disparity within England, with local authorities in the East planning only 1/14th of the number of installs next year vs. the London region, per capita 
  • More than 80% of potential EV customers have concerns about lack of charging, reliability of charging, and planning long journeys
