Charging in public

When you take to the road, you no longer need to worry about whether you’ve got enough charge to reach your destination.

Information is power (in this case, electric power) – and there’s now a variety of sources and tools available to you, so you can plan longer journeys with confidence.

New charging points are introduced every day: it’s calculated there are now nearly 13,000 public charging locations in the UK, featuring over 20,000 devices and, within those, around 35,000 connectors. Just five years ago, the total number of connectors stood at just 10,000.

The Zap-Map app helps you to quickly locate charge devices across the country.

And the Polar network enables you to charge at over 7,000 points nationally for a monthly fee.
