When Will the Government Consult on Mobile EV Charging Stations?

It has recently been announced that the Government will consult on the availability of public electric vehicle (EV) charging points in order to determine which areas are lacking a suitable charging network. Particular focus is being paid to destinations such as car parks and motorway service stations. The Government are making significant strides to ensure the future of EV’s but could more be done? Although the charging infrastructure is expanding, not all locations can support it, so mobile EV charging stations must be considered.

Electric car charging points are now much easier to find, with range anxiety decreasing significantly amongst EV drivers. Charging an electric car has never been easier, but as the Government work to introduce the £950 million Rapid Charger Fund, there are much cheaper alternatives that benefit remote locations.

Where Are the Most Popular Places to Deploy Chargers?

There are many different locations that can benefit from EV chargers, allowing drivers to top up their batteries to support their journeys ahead. Chargers are popular at motorway service stations, as they provide drivers with something to do whilst their car charges. They’re also becoming more popular at supermarket car parks and retail parks, as people are more likely to spend an extended amount of time there. Although discussions are taking place to install more chargers, some remote locations cannot support the infrastructure. For these areas, why aren’t battery storage chargers being considered?

Mobile chargers can be deployed anywhere in the country, providing charge to destinations and events where connecting to the grid is impossible or impractical. Our chargers here at Elite Vehicle Charging come with a complimentary concierge service, ensuring all chargers are working as optimally as possible. Annual events benefit from mobile EV charging stations, as they leave no legacy and can be rented for a set period of time. To find out more about our services, please visit us here.

Infrastructure Chargers vs. Battery Storage

The Government and local authorities prefer infrastructure chargers simply because they’re more permanent, which is a good idea for locations such as car parks and motorway service stations. They’re also a popular sight on roadsides. However, they can be quite disruptive when being installed, and may close the roads they’re being installed into. This is why battery storage chargers would be the most beneficial as a fleet of public charging points at music festivals and sporting events; they don’t leave a trace and can be taken away easily.

Battery storage chargers also won’t succumb to infrastructure issues such as power cuts, and maintenance won’t be disruptive. They can be checked routinely, and can even support the infrastructure. They can also help with decreasing range anxiety, as they can be deployed in more off-grid locations.
