Electric vehicle charging comes to Hackney!

Hackney recently launched the first publicly accessible electric vehicle charging point in Dalston.

The Council is committed to helping people to travel in more sustainable ways while also working to reduce transport-related emissions across the borough. This includes looking at ways to encourage the transition to electric vehicles from petrol/diesel engine vehicles amongst residents, businesses and the Council’s own fleet. The Council has begun a programme installing publicly accessible electric vehicle charging points across the borough with support from Transport for London and Department of Transport.

Further charging points will be installed around the borough during 2010/11, and the Council is currently assessing sites where demand is expected to be highest.

If you would like to suggest a location for a new electric vehicle charging point please let us know and we will pass on your request to officers. Would Stoke Newington Central benefit from a charging point?

More information about electric vehicles in Hackney is available online here.
