New research on the growth of the UK’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure has suggested the UK is currently on-track to meet government targets by 2030.
The website TransportandEnergy.com reports figures from DriveElectric revealing a growth rate of 30% in chargers in one year.
It says if the rate was replicated in future years, it would see the target of 300,000 EV chargers publicly available in the UK hit by 2030 – just over 10 times the amount currently available.
The statistics revealed destination charging was the most popular type across the UK with 17,179 such public charging devices by October 2022. These stations, often found in public car parks or shopping centres, make up 50% of current charging capacity.
