What is the LEVI Fund?
The government’s Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) Fund supports local authorities to roll out charging infrastructure for local residents who don’t have off-street parking and need to charge their electric vehicles (EVs).
Local authorities that are successful in their EOI submission will need to put together a solid business case, which will be assessed against criteria including value for money and the green credentials of any suppliers.
What can the LEVI Fund be used for?
The fund is focused on low-power charge points which are used to charge EVs belonging to local residents. You can also include some rapid charge points in your project, for commercial cars, vans and taxis, as long as the main focus of your project remains on residents.
As well as funding the charge points themselves, the money awarded can also be used for associated costs – like battery storage, which can help you demonstrate the best possible value for money for your project.
