The electric vehicle (EV) population is growing at a rapid pace; more than 760,000 people have taken the green initiative and opted for an electric car. They’re one of the most important factors in the Government’s race to achieve net zero by 2050, but there are certain aspects that are lacking. From EV home chargers to more destination charging stations, there are ways in which we can improve.
Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can deploy cutting-edge battery storage technology chargers to destinations and events across the country. We pay particular attention to off the grid locations where connecting to the charging infrastructure is either impossible or too expensive. These locations can easily be left behind in the EV surge, so we aim to provide charging solutions to help them stay connected.
Including Home Chargers in New Builds
Although most new builds now come with built-in home charging points, some are choosing to forego this important piece of equipment. 62% of EV drivers do most of their charging at home, due to the lack of charging points installed across the country. Therefore, we need to ensure that all properties have an EV home charger installed in order to meet the Government’s targets.
Our portable chargers are perfect for homes that aren’t connected to the grid, allowing them to charge their cars without travelling long distances to find a charging point. The cost of charging at home feeds into your electricity bill, which is still cheaper than driving an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle, but our chargers can help you cut the cost in more ways than one.
More Portable Charging
Although there are now more charging stations in the country than petrol stations (you can check for your nearest charger with the help of Zap Map), these are in major towns and cities. More remote locations such as the Scottish Highlands and the Lake District are being left in the dark. Music festivals that take place in the middle of fields are also missing a trick with no charging points, as they can attract more custom.
Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can provide destination and event charging to locations across the country. We can help solve the EV home chargers conundrum by providing power to off the grid locations, as well as supporting the existing infrastructure too.

The Emergence of Rapid Chargers
Fast chargers are the most common EV chargers in the UK right now, but rapid chargers are quickly making their mark. They can charge an electric car up to 80% full in less than an hour, making them the more ideal chargers if you’re looking to charge mid journey. You’ll often find them in big cities and at motorway service stations to aid in long journeys.
Our battery storage chargers can help increase the amount of people driving an electric vehicle. By helping those in more remote locations, we can encourage the entire country to go green, decreasing their range anxiety and providing more incentives.
