How Can Commercial Businesses Benefit From Electric Vehicle Charging Points?

Updated: Feb 2, 2022

In the rapidly developing automotive sector, the popularity and demand for electric vehicles has never been higher. A recent report by Zap Map highlights how the number of EV charging sites now outnumber petrol stations in the UK for the first time, with the electric vehicle revolution showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.

With more and more of the UK population switching to electric, commercial vehicle charging points will provide a vital part of the UK’s national infrastructure. Below, we’ve listed out four key reasons installing electric vehicle charging points could be beneficial for your commercial business:

Showcase Sustainability

More and more consumers these days are concerned with sustainability and most of them believe that businesses have a responsibility to help protect the environment. Consumers also indicate that they are more likely to choose sustainable brands over those which do not have any sustainability credentials. By installing electric vehicle charging points, your business can demonstrate its commitment to acting sustainably and caring for the environment, whilst also positioning yourselves as being innovative and responsible.

Generate Revenue

The potential financial gains from installing EV charging points could be hugely beneficial for your commercial business. EV charging points on your commercial premises can be kept private or can be opened up for use by the public, which can deliver around-the-clock earnings for your business. Furthermore, customers that frequently use and appreciate your charging points are more likely to spend more time at your business premises and consequently are more likely to spend more money too.

Future Proof

In the run up to 2030, when the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles will be banned in the UK, the need to become future-proof is essential. If your commercial premises is used for parking by your employees or the public, installing EV charging points will allow for a better preparation for the rapid expansion of the EV market. You can mitigate any potential future pressures on your business that arise from your team’s or customers’ needs for EV charging points by getting ahead of the game now and planning your own EV charging point infrastructure. Whether you own a commercial office, retail outlet, hotel or supermarket – a large proportion of your visitors in the future will have a need for electric charging.


In the future, it’s certain that consumers will expect commercial businesses to provide EV charging point facilities. Many consumers prefer to travel in their car when they go shopping and they wouldn’t want to be caught out with a flat battery. This presents a fantastic opportunity for your business to differentiate from your competitors who do not currently provide any EV charging point facilities. This could help attract new customers from your competitors, if the consumer prefers the convenience of being able to charge while they’re shopping.
