“Millions of people in the UK are expected to switch to electric cars over the next decade. However, the UK’s public charging infrastructure is fragmented, difficult to access and can be a major barrier to ownership for those who don’t have a private charger.
“Ofgem’s investment to expand the UK’s public charging network is a positive step towards removing one of the biggest hurdles to electric vehicle ownership.
“To ensure electric vehicles are an option for all consumers, the public charging infrastructure must be overhauled to offer universal access to all networks, making it much simpler and easier to use than it is today.”
