Electric vehicles and charging

Our vision for the future of electric vehicles

Electric vehicle ownership is forecast to grow. We are committed to ensuring the city is ready for electric vehicles and are working with our partners and residents to develop the city’s infrastructure through investment in a network of electric vehicle chargers.

We have recently been awarded a government grant of £300,000 to install over 200 on-street electric vehicle charge points across the city

Charging locations for electric vehicles in Brighton & Hove

Chargepoints are becoming increasingly available across the city. This includes garages, business and ‘Charge Your Car’ provides access to many accessible on-street charge points.

You can access Charge Your Car charge points by becoming a member of their service and using a Charge Your Car RFID card or their mobile app.
