The EV charging challenge
Britain's fight against climate change means that soon there will be millions of electric vehicles on our roads. If we don't develop the right network for charging them, we'll face problems.
A secure, nationwide EV charging network
The Government’s ambitious target of mass EV adoption between now and 2030 means that Britain’s energy infrastructure must change rapidly. The DCC's network is ready to be re-used to support nationwide electric vehicle smart charging.Partner with the DCC

How we can support EV smart charging
Benefits of using the DCC
We can enable a secure, flexible and nationwide charging network
Our network operates to standards set by the National Cyber Security Centre. The same secure network can be used for electric vehicle smart charging. The DCC can support secure charging across the country with 99.3% coverage nationwide.
A fair, easy to use service
Our network will enable a consistent, easy to use service that is the same no matter where drivers charge. Consumers will be able to switch tariff or provider simply and smoothly. And, the standardised system will give providers a level playing field, fostering competition and the best prices.
We enable, so our customers can innovate
Only by working together will we help consumers move away from petrol and diesel cars and achieve the Government's 2030 target. Our network will allow system operators, chargepoint providers and utilities to innovate and collaborate to protect the integrity and security of the network.
