For electric vehicles, charging at home usually occurs off-street in garages and driveways, a convenient and efficient option. However, in many parts of the UK off-street parking is unavailable to many residents.
By installing chargepoints on-street or in public car parks, residents without off-street parking can enjoy the convenience and value of charging their electric vehicles at home. As more residents use electric vehicles, communities will benefit from improved air quality and lower their carbon footprint.
The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) announced the continuation of the On-street Residential Chargepoint Scheme (ORCS), to increase the availability of plug-in vehicle charging infrastructure for residents who do not have access to off-street parking.

In addition to the continuation of ORCS, OZEV have announced the launch of the Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) pilot fund, which aims to further support the roll-out of electric vehicle charging infrastructure across England via large-scale, ambitious and commercially sustainable projects that use significant private sector investment.
