More electric vehicle charging points in Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire County Council has published its strategy for Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, including the provision of more charging points.

They say “The strategy sets out a plan to provide more chargepoints so residents and businesses will be able to recharge their electric vehicles conveniently and appropriately in the future. It’s forecast that by 2030, a minimum of 3,000 public chargepoints will be needed in the county, a six-fold increase on current levels. Around half of these are anticipated to be provided in locations such as workplaces, supermarkets and forecourts, with public authorities providing the rest” – mostly in existing public car parks.
