Source London

The charge point network for London

Source London logo

On the 26 May 2011 the Mayor Boris Johnson, launched the Source London charge point network.

Where would an EV charging point be most useful to you? Near the gym, tube, train car parks, the shops, on the street or near work?

Source London is a more convenient and highly accessible way of charging your vehicle whilst you’re going about your business be it work or play. Any vehicle that is licensed with the DVLA as a pure electric or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle can join the scheme. This includes motorbikes, cars, vans, trucks and scooters.

There will be a continued phased installation of 1,300 public charge points on residential streets and off-street locations, such as supermarkets, public car parks and at shopping and leisure centres in the Source London network. See the map for more details.

That’s the vision for EV drivers. You will no longer have to use different permits across the boroughs. You’ll have one access card across the whole city.

Transport for London is working with other partners across Greater London which will have twice as many points as there are petrol stations in London. Source London is the network that will bring together London's new and existing public charge points into one network. This will be run by Transport for London working in partnership with Siemens who are sponsoring Source London's entire back office function, saving hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Keep checking back on the latest charge points to be installed on the network.
