UK law firm TLT Solicitors joined forces with Zapmap to uncover where, when and how consumers charge electric vehicles – and what this means for the development and funding of the public charging network in future.
With EV adoption on the rise, TLT wanted to create a comprehensive report exploring the supply, demand and future opportunities for EV charging infrastructure.
TLT came to Zapmap to leverage the unique information provided in our annual EV Charging Survey, with industry experts sharing their analysis of the survey data as well as insights into the public charging network and funding landscapes.
“Our latest report on the EV charging infrastructure market combined exclusive data from Zapmap with expert analysis of funding and development opportunities from industry leaders.”

TLT’s report found there was a critical need for accessible and user-friendly charging, supported by smart charging, which will eventually become mandatory and help to encourage closer cooperation. As well as significant growth in the use of ultra-rapid charging, the report uncovered a growing expectation of EV charging as part of the standard, value-added service at destinations.
Ultimately, a key conclusion of the report was that investor confidence in electric vehicles – and the charging infrastructure required to support them – is growing, with investors thinking about funding charge point networks far more than even a year beforehand.
“Our latest report on the electric vehicle charging infrastructure market combined exclusive data from Zapmap with expert analysis of funding and development opportunities from industry leaders,” said Maria Connolly, Head of Future Energy & Real Estate at TLT.
“Leveraging Zapmap’s unique datasets, we were able to demonstrate significant growth in the use of ultra-rapid charging across the UK.
“This information was key to our report’s conclusion that not only is investor confidence in the EV sector growing, but that new funding models are emerging too.”
The future outlook was that data will be the enabling factor, helping to improve the experience of EV drivers with up-to-date information when out and about – as well as unlocking funding to build the right infrastructure in the right places.
