We are here to help UK Companies effectively implement electric vehicle (EV) charging at their workplaces.
As the UK moves towards full EV adoption in 2030, around 40% of all car owners won’t be able to charge at home. Therefore, more and more employees will expect to charge during the day at work. To meet this need, we have highlighted the following problems that must be overcome:
There is a lack of understanding about how EV charging infrastructure is going to work
The UK Gov has mandated the shift to EVs by 2030 but there’s not enough advice for busy, hard-working UK companies about how to keep their businesses relevant over the coming years
The rapidly evolving EV industry can be confusing due to developing technology
For many businesses, these issues are causing uncertainty about how best to adapt to a future where employees are reliant on electric vehicles and their ability to charge conveniently.
With specialist knowledge as a commercial Charge Point Operator (CPO), EvieLife will help your business adapt early and be ready for 2030 and beyond.

There are currently very few workplaces that offer EV charging.
The number of workplaces with EV charging will grow in the next 8 years but most companies will begin considering EV charging after 2030. By this time, EV ownership will have risen dramatically, and they will be left with no choice but to adapt. Unfortunately, they will miss out on years of potential revenue and, depending on when they make the switch, it will determine how far behind the rest of the market they are.
We’re passionate about helping UK businesses take advantage of this new market and new technology. With our expertise we will help guide you from being uncertain, with little understanding of the benefits of EVs and EV charging, to a modern well-prepared, green focused UK business ready to take advantage in the years to come and well on into the 2030s.
Grants for Chargers
Business grants of up to £350 are available for each EV charger installation you complete, making this is the perfect time to get your infrastructure in place to meet future demand at your workplace. If you are planning to install a shared charger or you require a plan for a fleet of electric vehicles, we will come up with the perfect charging solution for your business.
Grants for Electric Vehicles
The government’s plug-in vehicle grant is designed to promote the uptake of electric vehicles in the UK. From 18 March 2021 the government will provide grants of up to £1,500 towards the cost of an eligible plug-in vehicle where it costs less than £32,000.
The plug-in vehicle grant applies at the time of purchase and is usually given as a discount off the purchase price of a vehicle. The vehicle must have an electric range of at least 70 miles. If plug-in hybrid, the vehicle must also have combined CO2 emissions of 50g/km or less. This means all major full battery electric vehicles (BEVs) qualify, but few PHEVs are eligible.
Grant for small vans is £2,500 (less than 2,500 kg gross vehicle weight) and for large vans £5,000 (between 2,500 kg and 3,500 kg gross vehicle weight).
