Why are lamppost charge points a crucial part of EV charging infrastructure?

Typically, electric vehicle users will access a variety of different charge points in their day to day driving, the types of chargers used differ depending on the situation the driver finds themselves in. For example, whilst travelling long distances, fast & rapid charging points may be favoured. However, research shows that at or near-home charging is the most desired charging location.

Eight million UK households and just under a quarter (24%) of households in England do not have access to off-street or private parking. With charge point accessibility being one of the largest barriers to EV adoption, ubitricity lamppost and bollard charge points provide a low power, low cost and near home charging option.
