London specific information and support
- London’s 2030 electric vehicle infrastructure strategy published by TfL in December 2021 sets out what is needed to ensure enough EV infrastructure is in London by 2030, and proposed how TfL will work with the wider public sector and private sector to achieve this
- London Councils partnered with the London Office for Technology and Innovation (LOTI) and the GLA to create a dashboard of charge point usage data to understand trends and patterns of usage to inform future delivery in 2020. The dashboard is available to London borough and TfL officers only. Please contact [email protected] for access.
