Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, has announced today that the government will be giving an additional £2.5 million to support the on-street residential chargepoint scheme.
Launched in 2017, the scheme is designed to increased chargepoint infrastructure across the UK to make it more accessible, for those who don’t have access to off-street parking, to charge their electric vehicles.
However, the Transport Secretary is keen to step it up a gear and pump more funding into the scheme to meet demand and meet the net zero emissions target by 2050 in the UK.
