London boroughs are set to deliver another 2,630 charging points in the next financial year - an increase of over 300% - according to a new survey.

The survey by London Councils found the boroughs have already installed 644 charging points since January 2017 and are planning on installing at least another 2,630 by 2018/19.

The charging points installed include a mixture of slow (3kwh, mainly lamp columns), fast (7-22kwh) and rapid (50kwh+) charging solutions.

Cllr Julian Bell, chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee, said: ‘These figures highlight our commitment to delivering environmentally friendly transport solutions by growing electric vehicle charging infrastructure for our residents.

‘London boroughs are engaging with their communities and developing solutions tailored to local needs. It is essential we continue to do so and take people with us. London Councils will continue to work with our partners in delivering a modern and environmentally sustainable capital city for the future.’
