Public Charging Calculator

Use the Public Charging Calculator to estimate the cost to fully or partially charge your EV when using the public charging network.

How much does it cost to charge an EV on the public network?

When undertaking a longer journey with your electric car, or if you do not have access to home charging, then charging on the public network will be essential. Currently there are 20009 devices on the UK public charging network of which 3628 are rapid chargers.

Prepare for your electric journeys by using the above calculator to find out how long it will take to charge your EV at a slow, fast or rapid charger. If the charge point tariff is known, the cost for using the charger can also be calculated, ensuring that you are well informed before using the public charging network in the UK.

Visit our Public Charging Networks page for information on how to access the different networks or at our Charging Statistics area to see the profile of public charging by speed, location type and region.
