  • The UK’s rollout of electric car chargers has stalled so far this year, MailOnline can exclusively reveal, with the Government set to fall massively short of its target unless it ramps up monthly installations by a whopping 350 퍼센트.

    Just two months ago, the Department for Transport (DfT) set a new goal to increase the number of charging points more than ten times to 300,000 10 년 말까지.

    But that would require the introduction of almost 3,000 a month from June onwards — a huge five-fold increase on the current average monthly rate of 638.

    At that pace, 아니 10 would end up a staggering 240,000 short of its target with just 59,000 public electric chargers across Britain by the time a ban on sales of new 가솔린 and diesel vehicles comes into force in 2030.

    이 나라는 세간의 이목을 끄는 일련의 성추행 스캔들로 인해 흔들렸습니다., but MailOnline analysis lays bare how the rollout appears to be stagnating rather than growing.

    Between October 1 last year and January 1, 2022 there were a total of 2,448 electric car chargers installed, but in the first three months of this year that had slowed to 1,915.

    Despite the glaring figures, the Department for Transport (DfT) insisted its rollout was ‘accelerating’, citing data not yet published on its website that over 1,000 charge points had been installed in the last month.

    Though an increase on the quarterly monthly average, that is still way off the desired target rate, which would require a three-fold jump.

    Even at last month’s pace, the Government would end up 190,000 chargers short of its 2030 표적.

    According to data from the charging app Zap-Map, which is used by the DfT, the rate of electric charger installation had been steadily growing over most of the previous six quarters dating back to April 2020, when the rollout was badly hit by the first Covid lockdown.

    But the number of points installed from January 2022 to last month is even lower than the same quarter a year ago, part of which included a period when Britain was still under strict restrictions because of the pandemic.

    The new 2030 표적, which was set in March, came in the face of heavy criticism that the rollout of public infrastructure was too slow to match rapid growth in electric vehicle sales.

    있었다 420,000 pure-electric cars on UK roads at the end of February, according to the comparison website Next Green Car, 있는 동안 30,290 charging points across Britain, 그 중 5,494 were rapid chargers.

    MailOnline analysis also reveals that there is a growing North-South divide, with southerners having access to more than twice as many charging points.

    London and the south-east of England have better access to public chargers than poorer parts of the UK, although many electric car owners likely also rely on private chargers at their homes.

    Separate data shows one connection for every 30 electric cars in the South but one for every 50 in the North.

    The English capital is racing ahead in the deployment of the technology — with three times the number of chargers as the whole of Wales — while nowhere is experiencing a greater boom than the borough of Westminster, the home of Government.

    Local authority data shows London with a total of 10,020 electric chargers, dwarfing other big UK cities including Leeds (340), 리버풀 (175), 버밍엄 (248), 카디프 (84), 에든버러 (181) and Belfast (55).

    Westminster alone has 1,292 available to motorists, ten times as many as Manchester (112), 요크 (101), 레스터 (114) and Bristol (125).

    The figures have triggered a backlash among motoring groups and environmental campaigners, amid concerns that drivers will be reluctant to make the switch to plug-in cars if they believe there are not enough ways to top up quickly.

    THE NORTH-SOUTH DIVIDE OF ELECTRIC CAR CHARGERS

    MailOnline analysis reveals that there is a growing North-South divide, with southerners having access to more than twice as many charging points.

    Here is how the rollout has increased in the North, compared to the south of England (increase per 100,000 of population shown in brackets).

    The North includes both the north east and north west regions, while the South takes into account the total number of chargers per 100,000 of the population in the east of England, 런던, south east and south west.

    Boris Johnson wants people to scrap their gas-guzzling polluters in favour of greener electrical vehicles, but a lack of charging infrastructure has long dogged the Government and raised eyebrows about how realistic its targets really are.

    게다가, 다만 13 per cent of new public chargers installed so far this year have rapid or ultra-rapid connections, which can recharge cars in 30 ...에 45 의사록.

    The rapid versions are seen as crucial to overcoming motorists‘range anxiety’, which causes them to fear batteries will run out between charges and leave them stranded.

    It can take hours to recharge a battery with a standard powering point.

    The number of public chargers increased by 7,600 에 2021 to a total of 28,300 across the UK, figures on the Government’s website show, while that has now reached just over 30,000.

    하나, 뿐 1,276 rapid or ultra-rapid versions were installed last year, 보안관 사무실의 수색 및 구조 팀이 Sunrise Drive와 Old Oregon Trail 지역을 수색합니다. 5,200 at the start of January. 거의 300 more have since been installed to bring the latest official count on April 1 ...에 5,494.

    It comes as electric car ownership rocketed by nearly 590 per cent between 2019 과 2021, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

    비교하여, the number of standard chargers grew by just 70 per cent and rapid plug-in points by 82 per cent over that period.

    It means electric car ownership is outpacing the rollout of chargers by some margin.

    Ben Foulser, head of future mobility at analyst firm KPMG UK, said there was ‘no doubtthat the pace of the electric charger rollout would have to increase ‘to both cope with the demand of the coming years, and to convince others to transition to electric vehicles’.

    Ian Plummer, commercial director at Auto Trader, said the Government ‘has a lot of work to dobetween now and 2030 to hit its 300,000 표적.

    He told MailOnline that the current demand in affluent areas was drawing significant private investment and that more needed to be done to bring the number of charging points in the North closer to the South.

    Matt Finch, UK director of think tank Transport & 환경, also criticised the uneven distribution, saying ‘London has more charge points than Wales, 스코틀랜드, the North and the south west combined’.

    But he was optimistic that the Government could achieve its goal by 2030.

    Melanie Shufflebotham, co-founder and chief operating officer of Zap-Map, didn’t share quite as much confidence, but told MailOnline it ‘could be feasible’.

    She stressed that whether or not the target is met was less important than the types of charger available and where they are located.

    ‘What’s particularly good to see right now is the increase in rapid and ultra-rapid chargers, which are up 20 퍼센트와 74 per cent respectively versus a year ago,’ 그녀가 말했다.

    ‘These types of chargers are crucial for electric vehicle drivers doing long journeys and needing to charge en route.

    A spokesperson for the electric vehicle campaign group FairCharge said the latest figures were ‘disappointing’.

    ‘We hope this is just a short term blip and not a trend as it so important that the public charging infrastructure keeps pace with the incredible increase in demand for electric vehicles we are seeing,’ 그들은 MailOnline에 말했다.

    ‘The Government is right to set an ambitious target of 300,000 public charge points by 2030 — though we would have liked to see them put that target into law so that ministers are accountable for it.

    FairCharge also called the regional variation in charging provision an issue it was ‘campaigning to address’.

    ‘It’s a bit of a chicken and egg problem, but with demand for electric vehicles among consumers exceeding expectations, charging companies and local authorities should be going full steam ahead with building out more chargers, safe in the knowledge that the demand for these services will be there,’ 대변인 추가.

    A DfT spokesperson said: ‘Installation of charge points is accelerating, with more added in 2021 than any previous year, and we’re still on track to build a world-leading infrastructure.

    ‘To ensure that people can switch to electric vehicles – whether they live and drive in cities or villages, the north, 남쪽, east or west of the country – we are pledging at least £500m to boost local access to charge points.

    The department has previously said that £1.3billion will support the charge point rollout and drivers are ‘never more than 25 miles from a rapid charge point anywhere along England’s major A roads and motorways’.

    There was a 312 per cent increase in public charging devices between 2015 그리고 10월 2019, along with a 260 per cent jump in rapid points over the same period.

    ㅏ 47 per cent growth in total devices was also seen during the first nine months of 2019, although this dropped to 25 퍼센트 2020 — partly due to the various Covid lockdowns.

    There was a 37 per cent rise in 2021, but that has now dipped in the first three months of 2022.

    Although the Department of Transport could still pick up the pace during the rest of this year and beyond, it would require an unimaginable 350 per cent jump to hit its 2030 표적, equating to 2,903 new electric chargers every month or 8,709 a quarter.

    Ms Shufflebotham said: ‘300,000 is a big sounding number and we are seeing growth increase in charger installations, with April 2022 being a record month, so hitting it as a target could be feasible.

    그녀는 덧붙였다: ‘There are disparities in where chargers are located across the country, and the Government has announced funding for local authorities to address some of that.

    ‘We would also like another potential charging inequality addressed, between those with and without off-street parking for home charging, by bringing the VAT level on public charging down in line with people’s home electricity.

    ‘This would make running an electric vehicle even more affordable in comparison to petrol and diesel, get more people without driveways to consider electric, and encourage use of the public networks.

    Caterina Brandmayr, head of climate policy at Green Alliance, 말했다: ‘The UK has made good progress on rolling out charging infrastructure in recent years, but to ensure a rapid expansion over the next decade more needs to be done to support local authorities to install chargers, with interim targets and proper guidance and resources.

    An SMMT spokesperson said: ‘The Government’s electric vehicle infrastructure strategy points in the right direction, setting out a nationally co-ordinated, locally delivered plan which aims tobuild ahead of need”.

    '하나, to ensure that the plan keeps pace with ambition – and indeed, electric vehicle uptake – every stakeholder must play their part.

    ‘There must be binding targets on charge point rollout to match manufacturer commitments and obligations, to give drivers confidence they will be able to charge as easily as they would refuel, wherever they are.

    SHIFTING TO ELECTRIC CARS ‘WILL ADD TEN MILLION MORE VEHICLES TO BRITAIN’S ROADS BY 2050

    A wide-scale rollout of electric cars will add 10 million more vehicles to Britain’s roads by 2050 — taking the total to 40 백만, a report published last year warned.

    The shift to the environmentally-friendly vehicles, spearheaded by the 그의 클럽 매각 계획이 보류되었음을 의미합니다., will also lead to an 11 per cent rise in traffic between 2021 과 2050 — causing nightmarish levels of congestion, the authors claim.

    It will also lead to a 28 per cent increase in car ownership, rising from 34 million cars owned today to 43.6 백만 2050, 에 따르면 the report, published by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR).

    보리스 존슨‘s Government is currently pushing for the large scale adoption of fully electric vehicles in less than 10 연령’ 시각.

    It is banning sales of petrol and diesel cars from 2030, to help eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and achieve its net zero emissions target by 2050.

    But the report authors say there’s ‘no such thing as a zero-emissions vehiclebecause an electric vehicle fleet large enough to cater to UK drivers will require new roads and charging ports to be constructed.

    IPPR’s report argues that the Government needs to adopt a more balanced approach to future transport that also focuses on new walking and cycling routes, while encouraging use of public buses and trains.

    영국에서, installation of electric charging infrastructure like charging ports, or even some more ambitious projects like charge-as-you-drive, will be key to the transition to cleaner vehicles.

    As an example, 적어도 260,000 public chargers will be required by 2040 to support the government’s rollout, the report pointed out.
