According to the Department for Transport’s Electric Vehicle Device Statistics: January 2021 report, there were 20,775 public electric vehicle charging devices available in the UK, with 75 public charging points in South Gloucestershire, 42 in Cotswold, 39 in Stroud, 35 in Gloucester, 32 in Cheltenham and 16 in the Forest of Dean.
So, with the 2030 ban on the sale of conventional petrol and diesel cars in the UK looming over the horizon, it would appear that it will require a herculean effort to make the shift to all electric.
Of course, this isn’t something we or you can tackle alone, but in this blog, we look at how we can help you to play your part in the UK becoming cleaner and greener.

Home EV charging
If you are thinking of making the switch to electric, you’re going to need a home charging system. Or maybe you’ve made the switch and your home charging system isn’t doing what it needs to.

From Bentley to BMW, Tesla to Toyota and Vauxhall to Volvo, the Wallpod:EV Homesmart is compatible with all EV/PHEV models and includes a free three year warranty.
Workplace EV charging
Installing EV charging points at the workplace has lots of benefits, from encouraging cleaner and greener transport, by supporting your employees’ transition to driving an electric vehicle, to a potential revenue generating opportunity, by offering visitors a pay-to-charge service.
We have access to Rolec’s entire product range; why not enquire today about EV charging at your workplace? Our engineers can talk you through everything you need to know on a no obligation basis.
EV charging, any time, any place
As well as home and workplace charging, we can also provide public power-points. If you’re a local authority, or you provide a service in the public sector, we offer cost effective solutions which can ‘future-proof’ your destination, making it accessible and attractive to all.
EV charging grant funding
Did you know that under the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) you may be entitled to grant funding for your EV charging solution?
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) provides grant funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing electric vehicle charge points at home and the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charge-points, for eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations.
The Rolec systems that we install are all grant fundable.
