Are you ready for the EV revolution?
Improvements in technology, government incentives and low operating costs mean that electric vehicles (EVs) are an increasingly attractive option for drivers and businesses with fleets.
By 2030, it’s estimated that there will be 5.6 million EVs driving to work every day but with 40% of UK homes having no access to off-street parking, the question of where to charge these vehicles is looming large.
"76% of EV drivers are looking for more conveniently-located charging solutions."
At Centrica, we believe that workplace charge points will be essential to enabling e-mobility and have developed an intelligent EV charging service for businesses that is hassle-free, low cost, and fully managed. It’s a solution that is suitable for any sized business, from start-ups to blue chip corporates, and with 4,000 workplace installations under our belt, we believe we’re a natural partner to work with.
The electric vehicle revolution is coming. Is your business ready?
What you get...
Ownership of state-of-the-art equipment.
Installation by our experienced engineers.
Option to bill individual users for charging.
Full monthly reporting on electricity usage.
Ongoing care and maintenance at no extra cost.
Drivers will benefit from access to a self-service portal that gives total control over their EV charging needs, from managing their account and setting payment plans (assuming you don’t want them to charge for free), to planning tools that help to identify, reserve and navigate to their next charging point.
"25% of drivers will consider an EV next time they buy a car."
