Electric cars might be futuristic, but they are already here, and in use. Across the UK, the sales of electric and hybrid cars have risen exponentially, and this is set to continue throughout 2024. But when it comes to electric cars, the lack of chargers is one of the biggest sticking points for potential purchasers. There is, as with most things, an uneven spread of public charging points across the country, with some places offering more than enough, while other cities only able to offer one or two options. That’s why charging points in the workplace can be a great idea. So what are the advantages of workplace EV charging points? And what will you need to consider?
