Electrical Vehicle Charging

Charging Point

NHSBT wishes to encourage the use of Electric Vehicles (EV) amongst our colleagues, therefore Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCP) will start to appear in our centres.

The main advantage of using EVs is the low running costs. A full charge will cost around £2-4 and will give a typical range of 100 miles. By way of comparison, driving 100 miles in a petrol or diesel car, which will typically cost around £10 to £13 in fuel. To look at it another way, you will save around £100 for every 1,000 miles you drive (depending on the performance of your vehicle).

Other benefits of EVs are:

  • Helping meet our 2015-25 Sustainability Strategy requirements
  • Zero exhaust emissions
  • No Vehicle Excise Duty (Road Tax)
  • Parking and charging stations in many locations across the country
  • 100% discount from the London Congestion Charge

You can access the billing system and a national network of public EVCP’s, via a fob or an app on your mobile phone.

Cost of using NHSBT Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCP)

The agreed price for employees is 15p per KwH of Electricity. This is extremely good value for money given the average UK cost is 15.27p per KwH.

NHSBT EVCP Locations

The following Centres currently have EVCPs available to NHSBT employees:

  • Filton
  • Liverpool
  • Manchester

The use of the EVCPs will be monitored and assessed to inform decision making on whether to expand to other NHSBT centres.
