Esri UK map shows areas with the most charging points in Britain

UK: Preparing itself for the rise of electric cars, Esri UK has developed a map that shows locations of the most and least-prepared areas across Britain, that do not have electric car charging points, according to a report published in Dailymail.

According to the map, Gloucester, East Lindsey, Newark and Sherwood, and Adur are the areas that have only one charging point. Whereas, the further 53 authority areas have no public charging points whatsoever.

At the beginning of 2017, there were 10,986 public charging points in 4,042 locations in the UK, which shot up to 14,093 individual chargers across 918 new locations. But not all new installations are the same, with more than 40 different providers looking after the charging network up and down the country with varying costs associated.

The map places Milton Keynes on top for total number of charging points at 328, followed by Westminster with 253 and Northumberland with 189.  At the beginning of 2017, there were 10,986 public charging points in 4,042 locations in the UK, which shot up to 14,093 individual chargers across 918 new locations.
