Vauxhall's Electric Streets of Britain Campaign
Electric Streets of Britain

Vauxhall is launching the Electric Streets of Britain campaign to support the 40% of households without off-street parking make the switch to electric. Working with charge point operators and local councils we aim to accelerate the installation of on-street residential charging right across the UK.

To do this we need your help. Whether you drive an electric vehicle today or would consider one in future, we want to hear from you. By completing this simple form, you can highlight the requirement for residential charging on your street. Using this data, we will build a nationwide map of where current and future demand exists. We will share this data with councils to help them make informed investment decisions.

The sale of new petrol and diesel cars, and vans, is set to end in the UK from 2030. This transition requires a charging network that is reliable and accessible to motorists across the country. The ability to charge at home is one of the key factors determining whether motorists make the switch to electric. We surveyed all UK councils to find out how prepared they are for this transition. The key findings are detailed below. By completing our simple survey you can help us work collaboratively with local councils and charge point operators to accelerate the adoption of this vital infrastructure.
How can you help us?

Vauxhall has launched a database which allows all motorists register an interest in having residential charge points installed on their street. Vauxhall will share this data with local councils and charging operators to ensure investment is focused in the right areas.

You don’t need to own an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle today to complete the form. We also want to hear from you, if you are considering making the switch in the future, this will help ensure the required infrastructure is ready & waiting for you!

What else are we doing?

Vauxhall have partnered with leading on-street-charging operators, Connected Kerb and SureCharge, to support our Electric Streets of Britain campaign.
These partners have access to funding from Vauxhall to support their efforts in educating your local council on the best way to quickly roll out this vital infrastructure.

The findings come from a Freedom of Information request submitted to 414 councils and local authorities across the UK. See how many on-street residential chargers are due to be installed in the next 12 months in your local area:

71.6% of UK councils have no published strategy for residential on-street charging

69% of local authorities have yet to install any on-street residential charge points 

19,105 - London will soon be home to that many on-street charge points – more than double across all other regions of the UK combined
