The growth of electric vehicles in the UK has been rapid and is expected to double in the next 5 years and beyond
Whilst most electric vehicles are sold for personal users, business tax efficiencies and the growth of ‘green’ credentials are encouraging many companies to move towards electric company cars, electric fleet vehicles and offering EV charging points on their premises.
Whilst the growth of EV cars is significant, the installation of electric vehicle charging points in the UK motorway/transport network are lagging way behind sales. So many businesses, offices, retail parks, holiday lets, and those with larger EV fleets are installing EV Charging Points in their car parks to help fill the gap for their own EV vehicles, or those of their employees or customers. Our EV Charging service includes:
• Maintenance – software support, maintenance, and repairs
When it comes to installations, you have a number of commercial charge point options: 3.6kW, 7kW and 22kW. We also recommend the installation of secure RFID points, which allow you to control who has access, when they can charge, and whether they incur a charge. You can monitor your charging usage and costs online, or via your secure app:
• Track your charging costs and every kWh used
• Track overall usage for your account and by individual user
• Download itemised reports with average usage report weekly/monthly/yearly
• Monitor dwelling time for drivers
• 24-hour monitoring
Where you choose to monetise your commercial EV charging point, you can take payment and report on total revenue generated. Some of the benefits of offering workplace Electric Vehicle charging points are explained below
Improve employee satisfaction by offering a solution to their charging needs for both plug-in hybrid and full electric vehicles whilst they are at the office.

New Revenue Streams
With predictions of most cars registering in the UK by 2030 being electric, it is always worth considering monetising your Workplace EV Charging Point and adding a new revenue stream to your business. By registering your EV Charging Point on the Nationwide charge points, you can attract UK EV drivers as customers.
Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS)
The ‘OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme’ is a government grant for businesses provided by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).
Also known as the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS), the grant enables any business to receive a £350 grant, per socket, to install EV charging infrastructure at workplaces for staff and fleet vehicle use.
The grant is awarded to businesses; however, it is claimed by your OZEV-approved installation company and can be used for a maximum of 40 electric charging points. That’s a potential of £14,000 funding! To qualify for the EVHS scheme, you must:
• Be a registered business, charity, or public authority
• Have off street parking
• Outline a business need for electric vehicle charge points
• Apply for a digital voucher to be given to your OZEV-approved installer
