Could a new package of government funding remove one of the biggest barriers to mass take-up of electric vehicles (EVs) in the UK?
A new blog post by Andy Weltch looks at the recent annoucement of a £381 million Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) fund and £15 million for the On-Street Residential Charging Scheme (ORCS), which aims to deliver tens of thousands of new chargers across the country.
