Schools, Colleges, Universities, Academies and Trusts!


Did you know your school, college, university, academy or trust could be eligible for a £2500 grant for every electric vehicle charge point you have installed at your premises?


About the grant


In February 2024, the UK Government announced funding of £381 million to help local authorities install more EV charging points. A large amount of this money is earmarked for state-funded schools.


Under the scheme, the government have agreed to cover up to 75% of the cost of buying and installing EV charging points for schools, up to £2,500 per charging point.


The school EV charging grant is open to all state-funded schools including academies, colleges, nurseries and universities.
