In addition to En-Route charging infrastructure, ZEVI is also working with local authorities to develop the other elements of this national plan which will include destination and neighbourhood charging.
The National EV charging Network plan and associated funding initiatives will drive the delivery of public charging infrastructure in order to keep ahead of demand and deliver AFIR requirements for cars, LGVs and HGVs by 2025.
For en-Route charging, the draft plan includes guidance on the level and coverage needed for En-Route charging on the national road network. This including site locations, numbers of charge points and associated power and grid connections, as well as funding interventions and enabling measures to remove barriers and accelerate delivery.
