Londoners to get 22,500 car charging points by 2015

Recently at the Copenhagen climate summit the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson revealed plans for a comprehensive network of electric charge points in the capital, supporting the mainstream use of zero carbon-emission electric vehicles by 2015. The plan shows that Londoners will have access to 22,500 charge points at work, 500 on the street and 2,000 in public car parks.

The Mayor also announced that after detailed investigations to establish operational requirements, early next year the Greater London Authority will publish a detailed procurement framework to buy 1000 electric vehicles for the GLA group fleet by 2015

The estimated cost of the 25,000 charging points, conversion of the Greater London Authority fleet and other initiatives to kick-start London’s electric vehicle revolution is £60million.
