Businesses and households warned clock is ticking on these EV charger grants

There is now less than a year left for businesses, landlords and private households to claim a number of grants for EV chargers.

Several incentives offering up to £2,500 towards installation costs are due to expire at the end of March 2025, meaning those eligible now have fewer than 12 months to apply.

In recent years the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) has launched a series of grant programmes to encourage EV adoption. While the purchase grant on new private vehicles is no longer in place, others aimed at businesses, landlords, flat owners, renters and households who park on the street have been introduced.

However, several of these are due to expire on 31 March, 2025, including:

The Workplace Charging Scheme

This offers businesses, charities and public sector employers up to £350 per charging socket, for up to 40 sockets in total across each applicant’s site or sites. Click for details

Daniel Forsberg, marketing manager EVSE at chargepoint manufacturer CTEK, said: “There is just one year left to access these OZEV grants, which are crucial in making EV charging infrastructure more accessible and its installation more affordable.

“Applying for these grants involves partnering with OZEV-approved installers, and in some cases directly with OZEV, to ensure adherence to program standards and streamlining applications for individuals and businesses alike.

“Our UK team of experts are on hand to help installers and their customers with technical and operational advice and information. Whether you are a business aiming to green your operations or a homeowner or landlord eager to contribute to environmental sustainability, OZEV grants and CTEK’s technology offer a solid foundation towards achieving your environmental goals.”
