Working, in partnership, towards an electric future
In 2009, Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, published the Electric Vehicle Delivery Plan for London with the aim of making London the electric vehicle capital of Europe.
The aspiration is to have
- 100,000 electric vehicles on the road as soon as possible
- A network of publicly accessible charge points across London
The ultimate aim is for every Londoner to be within one mile of an EV charge point.
Transport for London is working with private and public partners to make this possible.
On 26 May 2011 the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, launched the Source London charge point network.
The publicly accessible charge points are located at supermarkets, on the street, London Underground car parks and car parks all over London. Customers can register with Source London, pay an annual fee and receive a card in the post which will unlock any of the Source London charge points to charge the vehicle at no additional cost (parking charges may apply).
