Digital service powers growth of the UK’s residential network of EV chargepoints

Client: The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles
Region: United Kingdom
Sector: Public Sector/Automotive

Capgemini supports the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles to refresh and simplify access to grants to extend EV chargepoint infrastructure to more homes

Client Challenge:

The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles wanted to digitise and automate the grant application process that is accelerating the growth of the UK’s electric vehicle charging network.


Following detailed investigation and analysis of user needs, the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles partnered with Capgemini to implement a cloud-based web portal that provides a single access point and data repository for all grant applications.


• Fast, accurate assessment of grant eligibility
• Greater efficiency in processing applications and awarding grants
• Increased speed of payments to applicants and installers
• Reduced grant application administration costs
• Accelerated government chargepoint programme roll out

“Charging often starts at home, with most UK motorists having access to off-street parking. As an EV driver myself, I know that home-charging not only provides access to cheaper electricity prices, but also means my car is charged each morning and ready for the day ahead.”
