Two-tier criteria
Points awarded if the combined authority has over 60 public chargers per 100,000 residents.

Further points awarded if the combined authority has over 434 chargers per 100,000 residents.


This question is marked using the UK Government's data on publicly available EV chargers within the combined authorities area. This includes all publicly available EV chargers, rather than just council owned or installed, as combined authorities provide funding and support for public EV charger in their area.

We have chosen the two tier criteria to challenge combined authorities. 60 public chargers per 100,000 residents has been achieved by a significant number of areas but many have also not yet reached this level.

The higher level of 434 chargers is based on the UK Government's 2030 target for 300,000 public EV chargers. To achieve the same format we divided (300,000 by the Office for National Statistics 2030 projected population 69.2 million) and multiplied this figure by 100,000. Rounding to the nearest EV charger gave us 434 chargers per 100,000 residents.

Marked using Zap Maps - https://www.zap-map.com/ - publicly available data on EV chargers, which is available using the UK Government - https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/electric-vehicle-charging-device-statistics-july-2022. Please note, we will use the most recent available data in the 2023 scoring process.
