Grant schemes for electric vehicle charging infrastructure

OZEV grant schemes for the installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure: guidance and application forms.

The government offers grants to support the wider use of electric and hybrid vehicles via the Office of Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).

EV chargepoint grant

The EV chargepoint grant provides funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing electric vehicle smart chargepoints at domestic properties across the UK. It replaced the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) on 1 April 2022.

Workplace Charging Scheme

Applicants can now use their business rate bill as evidence of eligibility for the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) instead of HMRC letters.

The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charge-points, for eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations.

Workplaces can apply for vouchers using the Workplace Charging Scheme application form below.
