EV Energy Taskforce: Encouraging Investment in Public EV Charging in the UK

1 October 2021

As awareness and excitement for electric vehicles grows, ‘charging anxiety’ has replaced range anxiety as a key barrier to EV adoption. Whilst this is partly down to a lack of consumer understanding and ‘misinformation’, there’s no doubt that further investment into the UK’s public charging infrastructure is required, if we’re to give motorists both the means and confidence to switch to electric and achieve our phase out targets.​

This new in-depth industry-wide study from the Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce explores the different business models currently used and expected within the charging market. It provides policy-makers with the information and analysis to make clear, bold decisions to help remove the barriers and offer the solutions and incentives necessary to encourage the sizeable investment required within this rapidly developing sector.
