90% of households without off-street parking do not have access to public charging infrastructure within a 5 minute walk of their house*. However, on-street charging is an unavoidable part of the UK’s network of charging infrastructure and will be a key requirement for mass electric vehicle uptake (e.g. return to home fleets).
