Since 1 July 2021, this represents a 31% increase in the number of public devices, or 7,637. While the number of rapid devices also increased by 31% with an additional 1,423.

As the uptake of EV's in the UK continues to grow, more public chargepoints will be needed across the country. A recent survey from Shell Recharge Solutions, found that almost half of EV drivers want to see improved chargepoint availability.
