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 charger 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.
