Why Installing Commercial EV Charging Stations Makes Sense

Why Install EV Charging Points Now?

1. Exponential Growth in the EV Market

The electric vehicle market experienced significant growth in 2022, with over 1.1 million plug-in cars registered in the UK by the end of the year. 

This includes more than 365,000 plug-in hybrid and battery-electric cars, marking a 20% increase from the previous year. 

The trend continued into 2023, with 17,294 new registrations of battery-electric cars in January.

2. Future-Proofing Your Site

EVs are undoubtedly a part of our future, and the infrastructure to support them is crucial. By being an early adopter, commercial landowners can position themselves ahead of competitors in providing EV charging solutions. 

As more drivers switch to EVs in anticipation of the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles, EV charging stations will become increasingly popular.

Benefits of Commercial EV Charging for Landowners

1. Customer Attraction and Loyalty

Today’s customers seek convenience in all aspects of their lives, including EV charging. By offering EV charging facilities, you can attract EV drivers who are more likely to visit your site while they charge, increasing footfall. 

Additionally, drivers are more likely to return to a location that offers convenient charging, especially if rapid charging is available.

2. Support Electric Vehicle Adoption

 

Lack of confidence in the existing public charging infrastructure is a barrier to EV adoption, especially for those without home charging. Installing charge points can encourage hesitant drivers to reconsider EV ownership, potentially leading to a transition away from petrol and diesel vehicles.

3. Increased Dwell Time

EV drivers who charge at your site are likely to spend more time there, translating into increased spending on site amenities. This extended dwell time can positively impact your site’s revenue.

4. Improve Your Sustainable Footprint

Sustainability is a growing concern for both consumers and businesses. By offering EV charging powered by renewable energy sources, you not only reduce your carbon footprint but also appeal to environmentally conscious customers. A survey found that 54% of consumers shop sustainably, and 43% prefer sustainable brands.

5. Attract Employees and Customers

Promoting your sustainability efforts, including EV charging with renewable energy, can help you attract both customers and employees who value eco-friendly choices and responsible corporate practices.
