What are the benefits of installing car charging points for businesses?

Potential benefits to employees 

The prompt growth in electric vehicle ownership requires a synchronised growth in charging infrastructures and some of these new electric vehicle owners could potentially be your employees and co-workers.

Owning an electric vehicle leads to a significant reduction in personal fuel and other running costs. By installing EVCPs (electric vehicle charging points), this helps to support your employees, plus you could consider using EVCPs (electric vehicle charging points) as an added benefit by offering them free or cheap electricity at work in order to charge their vehicle.

EVCPs also helps to drive the uptake of electric vehicles that you have added to your fleet. By making an electric vehicle a viable option for your employees to drive, they will benefit through a significantly lower rate of benefit in kind tax and personal fuel costs.

Energie Solutions are on hand to advise you on the best way forward for your business. Call us today for an informal chat about your requirements.

Benefits for your customers 

Furthermore to your employees, many new electric vehicle owners may also be your customers. Special car park spaces have already been created by all types of organisations in order to attract more custom. For example, hospitals, supermarkets, railway stations and motorway service stations.

Installing an EVCP can therefore become an additional benefit for customers and other visitors, which can help to attract more custom and potentially make you the obvious choice over a local competitor. Remember, when you make the EVCPs available for use by the public, they can potentially be displayed on vehicles’ satnavs and on online charging point maps, pinpointing your organisation as a place where electric vehicle drivers can enjoy the benefits of charging up, while they visit you. Putting your business on the map, literally.

 

Adding electric vehicles to your fleet and matching this with the required EVCPs at your premises will help your organisation to both achieve any published CSR goals (Corporate and Social Responsibility) and meet the criteria laid down by ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme), which companies of a certain size have to comply with.

Installing EVCPs also provides a great opportunity to make a public statement about your organisation, in order to increase awareness of your organisation’s environmental credentials, through encouraging the use of electric vehicles. Furthermore, providing EVCPs are of a clear benefit to employees, so again this can add to your reputation by demonstrating how you are aiming to look after both the environment and your work force.

Financial Incentives:

At home: 

If you are, or are about to become, the owner or primary user of a new or second hand plug-in electric or hybrid vehicle, you may be eligible for a Government grant to help you buy your vehicle charge point. You may be able to receive up to 75% off the total cost of the charge point and its installation.

This grant is currently only available to domestic electric vehicle owners, or primary users of a company vehicle. It is not available to commercial or public sector organisations, intending to install vehicle charge points for their employees or customers. The Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme is designed to help electric vehicle drivers reduce the upfront cost of the purchase and installation of a dedicated charge point at their home. It is administered by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), which is a UK Government body that is part of the Department of Transport.

Why do I need a charge point at home? 

You will need to recharge your vehicle when it is not in use (typically overnight), so you need to have access to a garage, drive or other off-street parking area.

For Businesses: 

Local Sustainable Transport Funding (LSTF) is one of the few Government funds that is available to the private sector as well as the public sector, which can be used to provide free or nearly free charging points to a business. The Government set aside £600 million for local authority sustainable transport measures in 2012 up to 2016. Of those local authorities that won funding, some included funding for charge points. Please contact us to review the list of all successful authorities to see whether there is funding available to have charge points installed at your business.

For Charging Infrastructure:

The good news is that the availability of places to charge electric vehicles is only going to grow going forward. The UK Government announced in January 2015, that it has committed £1bn to support electric vehicles (also known as Ultra Low Emission Vehicles) over the 2015-2020 period! Local councils have been invited to bid for this funding, so if your council makes a successful bid you can look forward to seeing an accelerated deployment of charge points near you.

The various grant schemes are administered by The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), which is a UK Government body that is part of the Department of Transport.

So, if you are looking to provide electric car charging points at home or at your business, get in touch with Energie Solutions today. We will be very happy to discuss your requirements and advise you as to what grants you may be entitled to and the best way to move forward.
