The £15 million funding for a national network of chargepoints is part of the Roads Investment Strategy, published by Department for Transport on 1 December 2014. This funding was provided to Department for Transport at Spending Round 2013. This funding is additional to the £500 million investment in ULEVs.

The National Infrastructure Plan announced that further details of the three funds will be published by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles. These schemes form part of the £500 million already allocated to ULEVs between 2015-16 and 2019-20.
