SyncEV Supports New Government Grant as Part of the Workplace Charging Scheme

Last month the UK Government announced changes for the Workplace Charging Scheme that will allow for more EV charging funding for schools and educational institutions.

New grants mean that state-funded schools, colleges, nurseries, and academies can now increase their EV charging facilities with up to 40 charging points covered in the scheme. The Department for Transport will be funding the scheme as part of the Workplace Charging Scheme, providing up to 75 per cent of the cost to buy and install chargepoints. Schools and state-funded educational facilities will be able to claim up to £2,500 per socket, when previously they were only allowed funds up to £350.

Cris Chapman, Managing Director for SyncEV, was delighted with the news and said: “This new grant from the Government for educational facilities is a step in the right direction. We should be encouraging the public sector to provide EV charging points for their staff, company, and the wider public so that more people can then feel confident in purchasing an electric vehicle, knowing the infrastructure is available for them.”

The new Workplace Charging Scheme Grant is currently running until 2025. Cris added: “The news of bigger grants mean we are expecting to see a significant increase in the purchase and installation of EV chargers, so now is a great time to get in contact with one of our dedicated sales managers to talk about stocking SyncEV.”
