I understand that after testing all of Source London's 464 charging stations, IER discovered 168 were faulty and required maintenance work. Are these figures correct? When will all 464 charging stations be fully operational?

Answer for A Third of Source London EV Charging Points 'Down for Maintenance'

Answered By: 
The Mayor

When IER took over the Source London scheme on 1 September 2014 the network was comprised of 1,415 charging points, located at 886 charging stations. 

 

Charge points are owned by the partners of the Source London scheme.  Charge network operators are responsible for supplying, installing and maintaining the charge points; the partners are responsible for ensuring maintenance is carried out. 

 

Data provided to TfL by IER showed that during an audit of the 1,415 charging points, 391 were identified as needing maintenance. 85 of the issues identified were related to faulty hardware or power supply.  The remaining issues were problems with software which can be fixed remotely by the relevant charge network operator.

 

IER is engaging with the partners and with the charge network operators to resolve any outstanding issues as soon as possible.
