Electric Vehicle Charging in Education

The Workplace Charging Scheme launched by the Office of Zero Emission Vehicles in 2022 has been extended to schools, academies, colleges and universities. This means organisations are now eligible for up to 75% off the installation of new charge points on their premises, with state-funded education institutions able to claim up to £2,500 per socket, up from £350 previously available, for up to 40 charge points.

Electric Vehicle Charging in Education brings you experts from across the EV and education sector to support you to establish a successful charge point  infrastructure and find out what it can mean for staff, parents, students, and visitors.

Supported by the British Educational Suppliers Association and sponsored by E.ON, the webinar is free to attend for professionals in education.
