Guidance for applicants, installers and manufacturers


Things to know

The Government has set up a fully funded department - The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles, known as OZEV - to deliver the Electric Vehicle Charge Point (EVCP) infrastructure scheme throughout the UK. This department is also responsible for administering the OZEV grant scheme which has been created by the Government to help it meet its net zero commitments. The OZEV scheme offers qualifying applicants a £350 grant towards the costs of installing an Electric Vehicle Charge Point. Grant applications can be made by private home owners through the Electric Vehicle Home Scheme (EVHS) portal or businesses can use the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) portal.

Things to consider

If your requirements are for commercial premises, such as charge points for an office, factory, gym or place of worship, to name just a few, certain criteria need to be considered before making any application. Firstly, how many do you need? You can claim a grant for up to 40 EV charge points under the WCS scheme. You do not need to actually have any Electric Vehicles in your fleet, or even own one, as the main aim of the scheme is to provide EVCP facilities to visitors and staff and to encourage the use of electric or hybrid vehicles. You must, however, have dedicated parking spaces for each charge point. Costs for EVCP installations vary according to mounting type which can be wall or free standing, speed of charge, existing electrical supply and the charge point management requirements.

There are also some technical considerations, which an accredited installer will be able to advise you on, including what charge speed to choose. Standard charge speeds range from 3.6KW up to 22KW but where a car is charging for most of the day 7.4KW is usually sufficient as this will trickle charge the vehicle in about 8 hours. Where a visitor may be on site for only 2 to 3 hours or perhaps at an EV repair garage which needs faster charging, 11KW to 22KW chargepoints might be needed as they are 1.5 to 3 times faster than a 7.4KW charge, however these do need a three phase AC supply. It is worth noting too that not all cars will accept an 11-22KW AC charge, but costs are only for the actual KWH’s that are taken.

The HLD-EV process

Our process starts by carrying out an on-site survey to fully assess the feasibility and suitability of your EVCP requirements.

Survey outcomes

  • Existing supply checks
    Full checks of existing electricity supply and spare capacity.
  • Charge point advice
    Impartial guidance based on our experience and expertise on the different types of charge points available and what is best suited for your site.
  • Location advice
    Ascertaining the optimal position of your charge points in relation to your existing electricity infrastructure to ensure the most cost effective solution.
  • Consultancy
    Demonstrate how you can recover costs from users and/or monetise your charge points.

    Please note that If you claim the OZEV grant you cannot charge for profit for the first 3 years. You can only recover your electricity and administration costs.
  • Discussion
    Finally, we are always happy to discuss any questions about your proposed electric vehicle charge point installation.

Things to know

Most domestic EV charging units supply a charging output of between 3KW-7.4KW single phase. This can be increased up to 22KW if your property has a three-phase supply. There is a £ 350 per socket Government OZEV grant available to help mitigate the costs of installing a charge point at your home address. The criteria for his grant has recently changed (April 2022) and no longer applies to homeowners. This grant is only available to flat owner/occupiers and people living in rented properties. For further information please click on the government link.

Things to consider

Type 1 or 2?

Domestic charge points can be either wall or pedestal mounted. They can be provided with a Type 1 or type 2 EV socket outlet. Type 2 is the European standard and almost 95% of all EV & Hybrid vehicles come equipped to take a Type 2 charge plug.

Tethered or untethered?

Charge points can be equipped with the charging lead attached to the unit (tethered) Most tethered units come with charge leads of 5m/7.5m/10m options. Alternatively, they can be supplied just as a unit without the lead. This is called untethered or socketed and best suited if you are unsure of your vehicles socket type.

Wall mounted or Pedestal option?

Most home charge points are mounted on the external wall of a dwelling, or garage, and as close as is possible to either the meter cupboard or the consumer unit. Where this is not practical, or desired, you can have your EV charge point mounted on a pedestal in a more remote location of your property. In all circumstances, consideration must be given to good connectivity of the charge point to the “Cloud”, this is to enable full smart control of your charge point. Connectivity can be via WIFI, 4g or hard wired ethernet cabling.
