I just wanted to know if these stats included the work and home charging points or only public points?
Thanks a lot and good luck!
- June 13, 2014 at 1:31 pm #12028
The statistics reflect the charge points shown on Zap-Map Live. These are mostly public charging points with a few restricted access points. So, in answer to your question on the whole they do not include work and home charge points.
Thanks very much

HI there, why are the ‘zap stats’ orange box at the top – fast chargers – and not rapid or both?
- June 16, 2014 at 8:58 am #12079
Ben Lane (Zap-Map)Keymaster
The total UK Points includes all charger types – and the Rapid Stats include all the chargers (AC & DC) which are 43kW or faster.
We don’t yet give the stats for Fast points (7-22kW) only, but as you can see from the second chart above, the majority of non-Rapid points are now Fast.
Hope that answers your question…

Firstly can I say that this is a brilliant website, so well done all involved!
Just wondering about the Zap Stats box at the top of the page, the fourth box currently says “123 – Last 30 days” what exactly does this mean?
- December 3, 2014 at 4:29 pm #18302
Thanks very much we are glad that you are enjoying the site.
The stats in question refer to the amount of points added in the last 30 days. We update our database on a daily basis as the number UK charging points continue to grow, this includes both adding new points and updating existing ones. We use a number of sources to do this from the National Charge Point Registry to customer feedback.
Hope this helps.

Is there a way to show which chargers have gone live in the last 30 days? I’m always interested to know about new chargers.

Hi, is there a way of requesting a charge point to be installed in an area? I live in south Essex and if there were Rapid Chagers installed in Chelmsford, Basildon and Southend this would happy cover most EV drivers through the whole of Essex and probably bump up EV sales as there would be a great infrastructure. There are some points in Southend and Chelmsford which are Fast Chargers but non in Basildon. Do I have to contact Essex County Council about this or a Charge supplier such as Ecotricity?
Thanks for your time look forward to hearing from you.
- December 29, 2014 at 5:02 pm #18604
Thanks for getting in touch. I would suggest trying Essex County Council as they are generally the ones who are able to apply and receive government funding to install EV charging points. Siemens have just won several contracts with local councils to install rapid charging points across the UK, so it may also be worth talking to them to see if Essex is included?
Hope this helps

Congratulations on such an informative website guys. The stats are really positive news for EV owners. Great to see that companies can provide cables at up to 10m long too (no car swapping on the drive).
I wish there was a way to get ‘real time’ information on charge point serviceability whilst out in the car? I pick up a Nissan Leaf next week and I’m not sure its nav system is updated with which points are working and which ones are down. Zap Map does give an indication but I would love to know how historical the information is?
Keep up the great work!!
- March 25, 2015 at 8:10 am #20212
P.S When is an Android Zap Map app going to be released?
- March 26, 2015 at 11:31 am #20236
Glad you are enjoying the site. Android app due for release next week all going smoothly.
- March 26, 2015 at 11:49 am #20238
Getting the app ready especially for me was kind (and completely understandable)!! 😉

Thank you very much for these useful statistics – great website! 🙂
I was wondering if you know where I can find the number of charging points in London per speed of charging (standard, fast, rapid) ?
I can see the graph showing that there are 1,502 charging locations in London but is there any chance I can find a breakdown of this figure?
Also do you maybe know where I can find stats about the number of charging points per different socket type (e.g. ChaDeMo, CCS, Type2, etc.)?
Any thoughts would be really appreciated.

I was wondering if there was another website similar to this one where I could get the total number of DC Fast Charging stations in Europe or at least for Germany, France, Norway and Sweden.
Thank you for your help 🙂

i have a CYC card, £20 per year , a handy spare for shopping centers ect , if you visit there web site they have teamed up with, The new motion , they have an app for EV charging in Europe were you can use your CYC card, some are free but some do charge.
I really want to take my leaf to Europe, its on my list
hope this helps
- June 22, 2015 at 11:24 am #21436
hi all can anybody tell where I could get stats or maps for Europe
- June 22, 2015 at 4:44 pm #21447
London Population around 5 million = over 1500 chargers, with plans to increase substantially.
Scotland Population around 5 million = a smidge over 1000 chargers, and maybe if we are lucky for a few more rapids.
- September 19, 2015 at 5:49 am #22727
Comparing Scotland to London with correct numbers; below some numbers (source Wikipedia):
Population of London in 2015 was 8.63 million with density of 14,200 people per sq mi (5,490/km2).
population of Scotland in 2011 was 5.3 million with density of 174 people per sq mi (67.2/km2).
Which one do you think will get more funding and will be able to serve more people with the same money and provide better value for money?
This is the unfortunate fact how things work (like broadband, mobile coverage etc) with most of the services being provided; high density areas always get better coverage. My experience in London has been that many of these chargers are permanently offline so numbers don’t really matter if they are not maintained.
Whole of Scotland seems to have about 1100 electric vehicles in use (unfortunately couldn’t find any useful stats for London for comparison).
According to this article parts Scotland charging infrastructure is not used that much: http://www.scotsman.com/news/transport/half-of-scotland-s-electric-car-chargers-not-used-1-3689246
Anyway over time things should get much better I would hope. I would imagine that Scottish government will provide more support by increasing the funding for charger deployment.
- March 9, 2016 at 3:05 pm #24843
In the 9 months since I made my comment it seems chargers in Scotland has increased by 400+. Unbelievable…. even counting every rapid 3 times (triple head) I can’t get much more than an extra 20-ish.
Still good to see change even if I personally haven’t found these new chargers yet. 🙂

Looking at the statistics for Charge Points, I was wondering if you are talking about “ChargePoints” whether this refers to a the number of sockets or the number of posts. So perhaps the chargepoint could be a post with two sockets.
- December 20, 2015 at 9:47 pm #23699
You are right currently on Zap-Map “points” or “charge points” refers to connectors of which there may be two or more on a post or device. We also show locations, and recently we have updated the database so we can show posts or “devices” – watch out for some more stats soon broken down by device aswell as connector.
- December 24, 2015 at 12:40 pm #23762
worried about uptake of HPEVs, and the fact that they have the same incentives to EV owners – despite being on the fence – so to speak.
- January 25, 2016 at 12:47 pm #24239
Apologies for repeating a similar question as above but I think I am a bit confused with connectors and devices.
I thought that devices are the number of charging points at the charging locations and connectors are the number of sockets?
Would you mind confirming if that’s the case?
- January 25, 2016 at 1:51 pm #24245
Yes that is correct!

Bryn the ecoParticipant
We are a green guesthouse with 3 EV points for over 3 years. All energy is from renewables. Two commercial hydros ( 450MW ) within 200m.
Is there a data on green electric EV posts?
- March 11, 2016 at 8:14 pm #24879
I was wondering if there is any way in which I can access the bar chart (or the data for it) for ‘Number of UK charging locations and connectors over past 12 months: Zap-Map, March 2016’ for a historical date ie from Feb 2015 to Jan 2016?
- March 21, 2016 at 5:45 pm #24970
You can use the data on this page as long as Zap-Map is attributed as the source and if on line, you include a link to Zap-Map.com.
- March 21, 2016 at 6:59 pm #24974
But the data for the number of electric charging points in the UK is unavailable for Feb 2015 and March 2015. How can I access these?
- April 13, 2016 at 12:13 pm #25245
They are accessible at the bottom of this page http://www.nextgreencar.com/electric-cars/statistics/

Thank you very much for your help!

What happened to the Yorkshire figure in the “PROFILE OF CHARGING LOCATIONS ACROSS THE UK REGIONS: ZAP-MAP, APRIL 2016” chart?
- April 19, 2016 at 9:27 am #25350
Yorkshire and The Humber has such a small number of connectors that it has now been grouped into the ‘Other’ section alongside the Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
At present Yorkshire and The Humber has 147 connectors across 45 locations.
Hope this helps!
