One year to go for UK EV chargepoint grants
The countdown clock is ticking on UK Government grants for Electric Vehicle (EV) chargepoint installations.

Businesses, landlords, flat owners, renters and households who park on the street have, from Sunday, one year left to claim the hundreds of pounds available for each chargepoint installed. Most of the financial incentives still available from the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) will close on 31 March 2025.

The schemes were designed  to encourage EV adoption now that the purchase grants for electric cars are long gone (although the Plug-in Van and Truck Grant runs until 31 March 2025 with purchase discounts for individuals and organisations).

The grants with one year to run are:

The Workplace Charging Scheme: offers businesses, charities and public sector employers up to £350 per charging socket, for up to 40 sockets in total across each applicant’s site or sites. Click for details
