Your Electric Vehicle Charging Concerns, Answered

13 July 2023

Electric vehicles (EVs) are more popular than ever, with an increasing number of people keen to switch to a sustainable and efficient mode of transportation. In fact, statistics have revealed that approximately one in five newly registered vehicles on the road are electric.

But, despite this growing trend, it’s becoming apparent that there are still a number of electric vehicle charging concerns surrounding the investment required to make the switch.
Here are some of the reasons you might be putting off making the switch to an electric car, and how the BES Group are here to help you overcome these challenges and transition to electric vehicles seamlessly.


Limited Charging Infrastructure

Many businesses are facing the challenge of limited chargepoints, leaving them unable to meet the needs of their employees, customers, or fleet. In turn, as well as inconveniencing your people, this could also lead to loss of custom or disruption if your business relies on electric vehicles.

However, the BES Group are proud to offer a streamlined EV chargepoint installation service for our customers. From the initial consultation through to servicing and maintenance, our team of specialists work with the very best manufacturers, which means you’ll only ever get the right solution based on your needs and requirements.

Part of our process includes working with Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) across the nation to ensure our customers and their site’s electricity supply is adequate for their EV chargepoint installation.


Range Anxiety

Range anxiety is a huge talking point right now when it comes to electric vehicles.
One common electric vehicle charging concern experienced by businesses is the fear of their fleet regularly running out of battery. While this can happen, there are currently 43,626 chargepoints spread across over 23,000 locations. To alleviate range anxiety, you should:

  • If possible, charge your EV at home
  • Plan your routes in advance, (such as by taking advantage of the websites dedicated to mapping out chargepoint locations, like Zap Maps)
  • Keep your vehicles well maintained

Also, when it comes to electric vehicle chargepoints, we’re proud to say that we know what we’re doing. We work with retail parks, businesses, offices, and more across the UK, installing and servicing electric vehicle chargepoints at their premises.

Not only that, but we also work with our customers to select the right charger for their needs. Whether an office wants slow chargers so their employees can charge while they work, or a highway service station needs rapid chargers to meet their customer’s demands, our experts will only ever supply you with the right charger for you. Alleviate range anxiety and enable worry-free electric vehicle usage with the BES Group.


Complex Installation Process

Installing an EV charging infrastructure can be seen as a daunting process for businesses. At the BES Group, we understand the complexities involved when having EV chargepoints installed at your site.

This is why we’re committed to making the entire process hassle-free for you. With our extensive expertise and experience, we have the know-how to handle every aspect of the installation and beyond.

Choose BES Group as your trusted advisor to simplify the EV charge point installation process and embrace sustainable mobility with confidence.


Compliance and Safety

Businesses looking to have EV charging points installed deserve the assurance that their infrastructure aligns with industry standards and safety regulations. And that’s where we come in.

At the BES Group, we understand the significance of this concern and place a strong emphasis on compliance. With our extensive expertise in testing, inspection, and certification, we ensure that every installation meets the highest levels of safety while adhering to the most stringent regulations.

We prioritise safety, employing rigorous testing protocols and thorough inspections to identify any potential hazards or non-compliance issues. We leave no room for compromise when it comes to the well-being of our customers and their people. By partnering with us, businesses can trust that their EV charging installations are built upon a solid foundation of safety and compliance.

No matter what, we’re committed to providing peace of mind for you, your customers, employees, and the public.


Scalability and Futureproofing

With more and more businesses ramping up their ESG agenda, many are choosing to make the switch to electric vehicles. However, if you’re a business owner, you may worry about investing in charging infrastructure that could be outdated in just a few short years as technology develops.

No matter what, our customers come first. Together, we’ll address this concern by highlighting scalable solutions that can accommodate your future growth and expansion plans. For example, when installing your first charger you may want to install infrastructure, such as underground ducting for future chargers.

This reduces costs by carrying out the civil engineering in one visit. Then, in future, as demand grows all you need to do is purchase a new charger and have our electricians connect it. Our chargepoint installations are flexible and adaptable, which means they can keep up with the evolving needs of our customers.



By transitioning to electric vehicles, businesses can reap substantial cost advantages. From spending less on filling up to the many incentives and grants offered by OZEV to UK businesses, switching to an EV can be a cost-effective investment. For customer-facing businesses, offering EV chargepoints is essential as you may be losing customers if they are unable to charge their vehicle.

During your initial consultation with one of our specialists, we’ll discuss available financial options with you, only ever pointing you in the right direction.


The BES Group Solution

We’re proud to say that the BES Group is a registered installer with the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV). This means that we can install your OZEV-funded chargers.

However, we aren’t just OZEV-approved. We also work in partnership with electric vehicle charger manufacturers. This means that we’ll only ever supply you with the perfect OZEV-approved charger for you, based on your site requirements and preferences.
