Unlocking tomorrow's commute: Unveiling the potential of the Workplace Charging Scheme

Posted by Harrison Thomas on 21st Aug 2023

A closer look at the Workplace Charging Scheme

The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is an initiative by the UK government that aims to encourage widespread adoption of electric vehicles in the workplace. This scheme provides financial incentives to eligible businesses and organisations to install EV charging infrastructure on their premises. By providing more accessible for employees and visitors, the scheme aims to speed up the adoption of electric vehicles while contributing to a greener and more sustainable future.

Why should your workplace embrace the WCS?

Financial incentives:

The WCS offers significant financial incentives to eligible workplaces. Under this scheme, you can receive a discount up to £350 per charging point, covering the installation of up to 40 charging points on your property. This financial support significantly reduces the initial investment, making it a cost-effective way to bolster your EV charging infrastructure. At evec, our goal is to make electric vehicle adoption easy for everyone: that's why we are proud to offer the UK's most affordable charger , approved by OZEV. If you pair this grant with our charger, you can make the most out of your investment.

Encouraging sustainable commuting:

The Workplace Charging Scheme offers businesses and organisations a unique opportunity to propel their journey towards Net Zero and achieve their sustainable goals, including Environmental, Social, and Governance ( ESG) targets. The WCS also supports your workplace to play an active role in reducing carbon emissions . By providing convenient EV charging options, you encourage employees to adopt eco-friendly commuting choices, contributing to cleaner air and a healthier environment. By engaging in the scheme before 31 st March, 2024, and establishing EV charging infrastructure, your company not only creates a cleaner environment but also advances its sustainability agenda.
