Benefits of workplace EV charging

What are the benefits of workplace EV charging?

According to a recent YouGov survey commissioned by Monta, over 52% of surveyed electric vehicle drivers didn’t have access to a charge point at their place of work.

But did you know that there are significant benefits for both employees and businesses by investing in workplace EV charging points?

Keep reading to learn about the benefits of workplace electric vehicle chargers.

1. Futureproof your workplace

There are approximately 1,000,000 battery-electric cars in the UK, and there’s no sign of EV uptake slowing down. Add the looming ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars in 2035 into the mix, and it’s evident that electric vehicle charging infrastructure at the workplace will soon become the norm.

If you take advantage of the opportunities for EV charging available now, not only will you be prepared for the future, but you’ll reap significant benefits now by staying ahead of the curve and positioning yourself as an innovative, socially responsible business.

You’ll win favour from visitors that have gone electric, too – whether clients, potential investors or otherwise – if you can accommodate EV drivers in 2024, especially if charging is free.

2. Improve employee retention 

With rising living costs in the UK, your employees will be looking for ways to save on expenses. And if you invest in workplace electric vehicle infrastructure and allow free or subsidised charging sessions, you’ll boost morale and productivity while simultaneously encouraging in-office working from the cheaper travelling costs.

Not only that, but providing EV charging facilities at work offers more convenience for employees. Some staff members may not have access to a home charger and will rely on the public charging network. By providing workplace charging infrastructure, you can increase accessibility and decrease any lingering range anxiety. This, in turn, will increase loyalty and add more value to your business’ benefits package.

3. Attract new talent 

The introduction of workplace EV charging infrastructure may aid in attracting and expanding your talent pool, including electric vehicle drivers and more environmentally conscious applicants.

In fact, new research shows that Gen Z workers opt for businesses with real sustainability plans in place, with a third of Gen Z workers rejecting job offers based on a company’s green record. Ensure you don’t miss out on up-and-coming talent by investing in workplace EV charging facilities.

4. Signal sustainability initiatives

Transport is the biggest polluter in the UK, and so by installing EV charging facilities, you can reduce your company’s carbon footprint while simultaneously signalling to the public and employees that you are implementing green initiatives. Not only does this action promote your business’s reputation, but it also encourages your staff to make the switch to electric.

Additionally, with access to advanced backend analytics via your smart workplace EV charger, you can further monitor your electricity usage and take additional action to decrease your company’s carbon emissions.

Or, if you want to go the extra mile, you could invest in a solar-compatible workplace EV charging solution. So, as long as you have a solar PV system, stakeholders can charge with more renewable solar energy.

5. Financial incentives


Reduce costs

If your fleet is electric, you’ll already be garnering multiple benefits, such as reduced emissions and no road tax. But an additional advantage is that you can reduce running costs by charging your fleet at your workplace instead of utilising expensive public EV chargers. 

Further savings can come from utilising smart feature functions, such as charge scheduling (where you can set your fleet to charge during off-peak hours when there is cheaper, greener electricity), which can further maximise your cost savings.

Generate revenue

You can make additional revenue by billing visitors and/or employees when they charge their electric vehicles. And, with more complex backend office systems such as FUUSE, you can set different tariffs for different users.

Furthermore, you could even open up your EV charging facilities to nearby public EV drivers and charge a premium for them to charge at your offices. Not only do you can make revenue from this expansion, but you are simultaneously increasing brand awareness, especially if you put your workplace on EV charging maps, such as Zap-Map.

Grant funding

The cost of investing in electric vehicle charging infrastructure can often be a barrier to EV adoption, whether you’re part of the commercial or domestic market. But did you know there are thousands of pounds worth of government grant funding available for offices and workplaces? 

1. The Workplace Charging Scheme 

Up to £14,000 of government funding is available towards the purchase and installation of electric vehicle chargers with the Workplace Charging Scheme. The voucher-based scheme is limited to £350 per socket up to 40 sockets.

Any registered business, charity or public sector organisation can apply so long as they meet the eligibility criteria

The deadline for final applications is March 2024, so make sure to take advantage of the WCS grant while you still can.


2. The EV Infrastructure Grant for Staff and Fleets

A further £15,000 is available with the EV infrastructure grant for staff and fleets. This substantial grant aid can be used towards investing in EV charging infrastructure now or preparing your business for EV chargers in the future.

Small to medium-sized businesses can claim the EV infrastructure grant so long as they have a car park and no more than 249 employees. Moreover, the company must be registered at Companies House or VAT registered with HMRC. 

The EV infrastructure grant and the workplace charging scheme can be used together, meaning up to nearly £30,000 of government funding is available for workplaces to invest in EV charging facilities.

This package covers the majority of homes in the UK. Before we undertake your installation we will carry out a digital survey to check that nothing has been missed. After reviewing the survey results some additional work may be required in order to complete your installation safely and to the required standards. If this is the case, we will contact you well before the installation date and advise the cost of any required work. You can then continue with your installation, or alternatively we will refund you in full if you do not want to proceed.

Included in our standard installation is :
• Fitting of a single phase charge point to a brick or plaster wall or other suitable permanent structure
• Up to 10 metres of cable, run and neatly clipped to the wall between the electricity supply meter / distribution board and the charge point.
• Routing of the cable through a drilled hole in a wall up to 500mm (20 inches) thick if this is needed.
• The fitting and testing of electrical connections and protections required for the charge point.
• An additional three way consumer unit, if required
• Installation of a Type A RCBO in an RCBO enclosure
• Up to 3 metres of plastic trunking to conceal interior wiring.
• An O-pen earth protection device if the charge point requires it. (This is NOT an earth rod)
• Up to 4 hours of labour from your installer to complete the work.
• Electrical testing of the whole installation.
• Handover and setup of the charge point and any app that may be needed.

Not included in our standard installation (additional work) :
• Where the installation requires additional cabling over and above the amount you have told us about.
• Upgrade/replacement of the main incoming supply fuse where the local DNO (eg Northern Powergrid) would need to attend site.
• If the charge point is to be mounted on a post/pedestal rather than an existing wall and where you have not selected a post as an extra cost option in your order.
• Installation of a charge point to a three phase supply.
• Where gas and water mains bonding (earthing) is not in place at your property. If this is not in place, additional work would be required before installation of the charge point.
• Any groundwork that has not been selected during the order process.

A Surge Protection Device is not included in our standard installation. 

What else you need to know :
• On the day of installation, please ensure that the area around your consumer unit (fuse box), incoming electricity supply meter and proposed charge point location (including where the cable is expected to be run) is clear and free of obstructions.
• We will need your WiFi password as part of the installation process in order to connect your charge point to the internet. Please have this available for the installer. Details will not be kept.
• The charge point must be on your own designated off road parking.
• The charger will be fixed in line with current guidelines at a height where it cannot be hit by a vehicle.
• Our installers are not able to enter loft spaces; lift floorboards or flooring; take apart any furniture of work above a height of 2m. If you anticipate that any of this may be required, then please contact us and we can discuss in more detail and provide you with a quotation.
• Should there be extreme weather conditions our installers may not be able to continue with you installation if it is not safe to do so (for example flooding). They will always do their best to complete the work where they can.
