Electric vehicle owners who are members of Source London or Source East can now roam between the capital and the East of England secure in the knowledge they will be able to charge their vehicles across both schemes. They now have easier access to around 940 charge points throughout London and Eastern England.

An agreement between electric vehicle charging networks Source London and Source East means that members of both schemes will be able to use the other’s charge points free of charge and have access to around 940 charge points throughout London and the East England.

Source London, a consortium of 50 public and private partners has 810 charge points throughout the capital with plans to increase that to 1300 in 2013. Source East covers the East of England region and includes the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex together with Peterborough, Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, Luton, Thurrock and Southend. Currently with 132 charge points, Source East aspires to have 800 publicly accessible charge points – one within 25 miles of all businesses and residents in the Eastern counties.

Nick Fairholme, TfL Director for Source London said: “We are pleased to be able to offer this service to our members. London is leading the way in providing charge points for owners of electric vehicles. The growth in the electric vehicle market is very encouraging and by building the infrastructure to support these vehicles, we expect them to become even more accessible. London’s charge point network guarantees our members are never far away from a point. This arrangement between Source London and Source East means they can now comfortably travel outside London also safe in the knowledge that they are never too far from a charge point.”

Keith Bevis, Managing Director for EValu8, the company that manages the Source East programme, said: “Working to make electric car charging points more accessible to all our members is something that we are very passionate about, especially with the heritage the East of England has for developing green transport solutions. The roaming scheme means we will be able to continue to support and help motorists travel in a sustainable way.”
