60,000 charge points needed in London by 2030, according to TfL

Transport for London (TfL) has published London’s 2030 Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy, outlining how the private and public sectors can do more to ensure the city is set up to support the growing number of EVs on the road. 

Building on the Delivery Plan launched in 2019, the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy has been developed based on input from a variety of stakeholders, including the Mayor’s EV Infrastructure Taskforce. The strategy claims that the number of EV charge points in London has increased by 85% since 2019, but 60,000 charge points could be needed across the Capital by 2030, including up to 4,000 rapids. 

It is expected that the majority of charge points will be provided by the private sector, although the strategy also calls for government funding to maintain consumer confidence and accelerate the switch the EVs.
