Surrey to add 10,000 public chargers by 2030

Connected Kerb and Surrey County Council have announced a commitment to deliver the 10,000 electric vehicle charge points across the county by 2030. 

The rollout, which is the largest deployment of chargers by a UK local authority, will see points installed at over 1,500 locations across streets and public car parks in Surrey to accelerate EV uptake in the area. 

The contract will release up to £60 million of investment from Connected Kerb, delivering over 5,000 fast charging points by 2027, including over 500 22kW quick AC charging points across the county.

Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said: “If one local authority can deliver such a significant boost to the UK’s charging network, just imagine what we could achieve by 2030 if every city, county, and combined authority was empowered to do the same.

“If local authorities are the door to a clean transport future, then charging networks like Connected Kerb are the key, providing the tools and expertise needed to unlock the transition at the pace and scale required to reach net zero. Although the Government’s estimate of 300,000 chargers by 2030 may feel ambitious, it’s eminently possible – and necessary – to achieve; this deal proves it.”

The partnership will see a rapid rollout of on-street charge points, with plans to install hundreds within the first year. The ambition is to make one in five of the EV charging bays accessible to drivers with disabilities, in recognition of the need to make EV adoption a practical reality for the 2.35 million blue badge holders on UK roads.

The points will include 7 and 22kW AC chargers
