How does the funding work?

Installing EV charge points is one of the key challenges for councils in the UK. Even with the generous grants from OZEV, many councils’ budgets are too stretched to cover the investment.

Time for some good news. As ubitricity is part of the Shell Group, we can match your council’s goals with the ability to implement.

Shell recently announced its ambition to install 50,000 on-street charge points by 2025. The company is backing up this ambition with an offer to cover the difference between the 75% contribution from OZEV and the remaining cost of the project.
