How Rentable EV Chargers Can Make the EV Surge ‘Equal’

Recently, the UK car industry warned that the number of chargers currently deployed across the UK is currently not enough to keep up with the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road. There’s currently a “growing regional divide” in the provision of EV charge points, which is swaying opinion on EVs altogether. This divide comes down to a number of reasons, but the main one is the fact that the grid, in some areas, cannot support a fleet of chargers. Luckily, there are mobile EV charging solutions out there that can help.

Here at Elite EV Charge, we provide portable vehicle charging points for destination charging and event charging alike. We understand the demand for EV charging, but some locations are unable to provide an effective service due to a lack of access to the grid. In order to make the regional divide a bit more equal, we need to consider portable charging a lot more intently…

Provisions for Remote Locations

More off-grid locations such as the Scottish Highlands are going without a full range of EV charging stations. As you can see by the live map on Zap-Map, there are various places across the UK that are without a good number of EV charge points, which could be a reason as to why some people are still uncertain about opting for an EV. If we ever want to shrink the divide between locations with chargers and without, we need to consider rentable EV charging options. 

For the best charging experience possible, drivers want to know that their vehicle will get the charge it needs, and that there is a decent charger nearby.

Portable EV charging points can provide a fast charge, and can be deployed anywhere in the UK. If there is no stable connection to the grid, or it is impractical, EV drivers can rest assured that their vehicle is getting the charge it needs. Lots of locations don’t opt for EV charging because they don’t see it as an option. Rentable destination charging can not only encourage more people to drive an EV, but it will attract more tourists who drive one already.

How Mobile EV Chargers Can Benefit Events

In the UK, a third of households do not have a designated place to park and charge their car, which deters them from opting for a greener vehicle in the first place. Therefore, before moving house, they will look for chargers in the near vicinity for a quick charge, whether this is at their workplace or at shopping centres. But what can portable EV charge points bring to events? Many drivers may not wish to travel to an event if there is nowhere to charge, and installing grid chargers can be disruptive. Luckily, we have the solution.

Mobile EV chargers can be deployed at events, such as music festivals and sports games, to avoid installing grid chargers which may be highly impractical. Some events take place in remote areas such as fields and farms, so rentable EV charging stations could be the perfect solution. To find out more about our services, please visit us here.

Meeting the Demand

In recent years, there have been various campaigns and events taking place that have highlighted the damaging effects of climate change. From COP26 to the protests that have happened up and down the country, there has never been a more vital time to drive an electric vehicle. As the demand for EVs increases, so does the need for chargers. However, grid chargers can sometimes be a nuisance. They can cut out easily if there is a power cut, and they take a while to install, closing down roads on some occasions. By deploying portable chargers, we can meet the demand.

Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we care deeply about the planet and understand the need for everyone to start driving a smarter vehicle. We can deploy our portable EV charge points across the UK, providing an expert concierge service to keep them working optimally.
