EV charging company Connected Kerb has announced plans to install 190,000 new public on-street EV chargers by 2030.
It says this will follow agreements for 10,000 chargers to be installed in 2021 alone, most of which will be in West Sussex and Kent, with the West Sussex tender believed to be the largest of its type with a UK local authority.
Deals for a further 30,000 chargers are expected by the end of next year, by which time 5,500 chargers should be installed.
Connected Kerb chief executive officer Chris Pateman-Jones said: "Knowing you can arrive at virtually any location, at any time, in any vehicle and cheaply charge your battery without inconvenience or faff is the reality we have to deliver to create an EV society.
"Our rollout of public chargers - one of the most ambitious the UK has ever seen - encapsulates that future, helping individuals and businesses to confidently make the switch to electric, reducing their carbon footprint and cutting air pollution."
