SYNCEV SUPPORTS NEW 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. “The news is a positive step forward in encouraging the electrification of the UK,” comments Cris Chapman, Managing Director for SyncEV.

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% 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, which pioneered the first EV chargers, said he was delighted with the news. He added: “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.

“SyncEV has always been at the forefront of the EV industry and is continuing to innovate EV charger technology to be more sustainable and support the UK on its journey to net zero by 2050.”

Packed with smart technology, SyncEV charging stations are small, customisable, and easy to install. They are compatible with all electric and hybrid plug-in vehicles and can charge faster than a conventional electrical socket, providing enough power for cars, vans and school buses in combination with the UK power grid.

“Choosing SyncEV chargers for your educational institution means you are safe in the knowledge that all chargers are fitted by a registered installer, come with fixed setup and comprehensive support, as well as a three-year warranty for peace of mind,” said Cris. “Our smart EV charging technology means that our chargers are connected to the internet so the devices can be updated with new firmware and software as new technologies are released into the market. 

“It factors in the ability to utilise renewable energy sources, integrate with times of use and economy tariffs, and can also balance the power demand with your building supply, ensuring you can charge quickly and safely without interrupting normal building use.”

SyncEV chargers are available to purchase from local electrical wholesalers.
