A NEW trade body for the electric vehicle (EV) charging industry has been launched called ChargeUK.
The association represents 18 of the largest EV charge point installers and at its launch (28 April) revealed investment plans up to 2030 worth £6bn.
The members said they would install tens of thousands of new chargers this year, with the aim of doubling the size of the network through 2023 and assuaging fears of drivers worried about the switch to EVs and lack of public charge points.
ChargeUK said it would work collaboratively with government and other stakeholders to break down barriers and shape the policies and regulation needed to enable transition to an electric future.
The 18 founding members of ChargeUK are:
- BP Pulse,
- Connected Kerb,
- Pod Point,
- PoGo Charge,
- Shell Recharge, and
- Raw Charging.
