Charging operators call for standardized signage for public charging stations

ECOTRICITY BRANDED LEAF 1

Nissan and Ecotricity, the operator of the Electric Highway charging network, have called on the UK government to introduce official road signage for the UK’s growing number of EV charging points.

The two companies are mounting a campaign to encourage the Department for Transport and Office for Low Emission Vehicles to take action to raise awareness of the country’s EV infrastructure by introducing universal symbols for the different types of EV charging points available, such as standard and rapid chargers.

CHARGE POINT

There are over 9,000 EV charging points in the UK, but there is still no official, recognizable signage to direct motorists to them. On the other hand, there are official signs for “migratory toad crossings,” of which the UK has only 140.
