It has been brought to our attention on the day of the release (21 June 2018) that a local authority (Cornwall) has been omitted from the analysis. The department has the data and will be adding it in due course.
Experimental statistics on the usage of local authority rapid chargepoints from data from 26 local authorities in England in 2017. This included the typical amount of energy supplied, and typical plug-in duration per charging event.
In 2017, the:
- median average energy supplied per charging event was 8.9 kilowatts (kWh)
- median average plug-in duration per charging event was 30 minutes
The overall charging profile showed the:
- number of charging events rose from the early hours of the morning before reaching a peak at lunchtime
- frequency of charging events was more effected by time of day than day of the week
