This would be fantastic if it is true. In order to encourage people to make the investment and change to an EV, we have to make it as easy as possible for people to charge up, especially as a huge proportion of people do not have their own off street parking at home and aren't eligible for a home charging system.
I was in Amsterdam at the weekend and their charging infrastructure was great, there were charging points next to all of the canals, even the very small ones. It did get me thinking though, that in a country where there are more bicycles than cars, when will we transition to more electric bikes. I rediscovered my love for cycling whilst in Amsterdam and would love to cycle to work more. If electric bikes and associated charging infrastructure were more readily available, I bet plenty more people would cycle to work on an electric bike knowing you wouldn't need to shower on arrival! This would certainly aid in our transition towards low emission transport.
Reports have emerged of a possible workplace charging grant to incentivise wider use of electric vehicles (EVs) by businesses around the UK, sparking confusion from the charging point sector. David Martell, chief executive of charging point manufacturers Chargemaster and Charging Solutions, has been quoted by car news specialist Auto Express and fleet news outlet Business car claiming that he had been told to expect a grant subsidy scheme in the coming weeks.
