Electric vehicles

We’re committed to tackling climate change and improving local air quality. To help us do this we are encouraging residents to drive electric vehicles.

Electric vehicles are particularly suitable for driving in urban areas like Camden where short distances are covered. These vehicles produce no air pollution emissions and are extremely beneficial in terms of improving air quality. The distance that electric vehicles can travel is gradually increasing due to improvements in battery technology.

Electric vehicles are exempt from the congestion charging scheme, pay no road tax (Vehicle Exercise Duty) and benefit from reduced company car tax.

Source London / Blue Point London

Camden currently has 28 on-street charge points in the Borough, information on these points can be found below:

At present Camden’s charge points are going through a transition period as the management of Source London has been taken over by Blue Point London (BPL). We are currently working with them to develop detailed plans for the transfer.

Camden is aware that some of the charge points are faulty and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We have been informed that some charge points require changing. BPL intend replacing/repairing these charge points once all parties have reached agreement regarding the new terms and conditions, which are being introduced following their takeover of Source London network.

We hope to reach an agreement by the end of 2015 and our primary objective is to get all the faulty charge points up and running effectively.

This page will be updated further once a repair plan is in place.
