Transport energy and environment statistics

Impact of transport on energy consumption and the environment, including electric vehicle charging, greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.

Latest electric vehicle charging device statistics

Experimental statistics on the number of publicly available electric vehicle charging devices and rapid charging devices in the UK, broken down by local authority. From April 2020, figures are updated and published quarterly.

Data are sourced from the electric vehicle and charging point platform Zap-Map.

An interactive map of this data is also available.

Data tables on the impact of transport on energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and pollution

These tables are published annually as part of Transport Statistics Great Britain. They cover a range of sources and topics relating to the impact of transport on the environment.

Archived data and past reports

3 earlier releases present statistics on observed usage and charging patterns for electric vehicle charging devices which were funded under various Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) schemes.

About transport energy and environment statistics

Statistics on electric vehicle charging infrastructure are sourced from information collected by the Department for Transport, supplemented by third-party data. These are official statistics.

Most of the data published in the ENV series data tables is compiled from sources originally published elsewhere, designed to highlight data related to transport. These tables form Chapter 3 of the annual Transport Statistics Great Britain publication. Most of these tables are sourced from National Statistics data.
