Devon County Council has been awarded more than £7m of Government funding to support the delivery of thousands of new, publicly accessible, Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points across Devon over the next few years.

A key barrier to the uptake of EVs in Devon is the availability of suitable charging infrastructure, particularly in remote and rural areas. To address this, we want to support the delivery of 2,000 more charging points by 2030, with a particular focus on residential streets in rural and remote areas with electric grid constraints, where higher uptakes of EVs are forecast and communities without or with limited access to off-street parking.

The scheme is set to begin in 2025 and will significantly expand on an already growing network of on and off-street EV charging points in Devon. Read more here.
