Expanding Funding Solutions

Utilising our knowledge of London’s infrastructure, we work with our clients to leverage government funding and grants, such as LEVI/ORCS, to provide you with access to additional funding that supports your budgets.

Currently there are two types of funding available from the government:

How to Fund your EV charging strategy with the LEVI Scheme

The Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Scheme (LEVI) is a £450m scheme announced by the UK government in March 2022 as part of their electric vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Strategy. The scheme is open to local authorities in England and is designed to encourage the planning and roll-out of EV charging infrastructure across the UK. This is achieved through large-scale, ambitious and commercially sustainable projects that use significant private sector investment. The LEVI fund will target projects such as EV hubs and innovative on-street charging.

ORCS Funding Can Help Build your EV Charging Infrastructure

The On-street Residential charge point Scheme (ORCS) provides grant funding for local authorities to install residential on-street charge points. The aim of the scheme is to improve the availability of local electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure for residents without off-street (private) parking.Through ORCS funding, local authorities can receive a grant covering up to 60% of residential charge point procurement and installation costs, and by working with SureCharge we can further assist with the funding of your scheme.

For help and assistance in applying for either scheme, we have an experienced team at SureCharge that can find the right funding solution to suit you.
