If you cannot charge your EV at home this is a guide to arrange on-street parking via your local council.
On-Street Charging for Residents Introduction
1. W e have begun a period of change in the way we power our motor vehicles, a period which will provide hugely significant opportunities for the UK to grow its economy, and improve our environment. Our mission is that all new cars and vans in the UK will be effectively zero emission by 2040, with the UK at the forefront of their design, development and manufacture, making us one of the most attractive locations for zero emission vehicle-related inward investment in the world. Such vehicles will not only help to us achieve our carbon reduction targets, but tackle local air quality challenges and lower noise pollution too.
2. Our vision is to have one of the best electric vehicle infrastructure networks in the world. This means a network for current and prospective electric vehicle drivers that is affordable, reliable, accessible, and secure.
3. Local Authorities are invited to submit applications for the On-Street Residential Grant Scheme (referred to as “the Scheme” for the remainder of this document). The Scheme funding is aimed at increasing the availability of plugin vehicle charging infrastructure for those who do not have access to off-street parking. 4. The Scheme gives Local Authorities access to grant funding which can be used to part fund the procurement and installation of on-street electric vehicle chargepoint infrastructure, to meet residential needs, in line with the minimum technical specifications.
5. In October 2016, OLEV announced funding for Local Authorities, which will be allocated to successful eligible applications on a ‘first-come, first-s erved’ bas is and we encourage Local Authorities to take advantage of this funding while it is available to help prepare and support for the transition towards zero emission vehicles.
6. The latest version of the guidance (1.2) incorporates changes to the scheme based on the experience and learnings gained since the scheme has been in operation.
