Public electric vehicle chargepoints in Sheffield

We want to support people switching to electric vehicles. To do this we want to increase the number of electric vehicle chargepoints in the city to give residents, businesses and visitors greater confidence in using electric vehicles.

Find our chargepoints

We have installed public electric vehicle chargers in a range of locations across the city.  They make it easy to upgrade to an electric vehicle without the need for a home chargepoint.

The chargers are located in Council car parks and on-street parking across the city, including locations in the city centre. We are expanding our network of charges in council car parks this year and are also actively exploring options for the future.

You can search for electric chargepoints (including those not installed by the Council) on a range of websites including Zap-Map and Plugshare.

Requesting a public electric vehicle chargepoint 

We are happy to add requests for public electric vehicle chargepoints to a list to help inform future priorities as plans are developed.

If you would like a request to be added to this list please email the details to

The Council does not intend to approve requests for the installation of:

  • private electric vehicle chargepoints in public highways
  • communally owned electric vehicle chargepoints in public highways

Street Light Column Electric Vehicle Charging Trial

We are currently exploring a trial to understand the potential for electric vehicle charging from street light columns in Sheffield, subject to available funding and resources. This would help us to work through the technical issues associated with charging from Sheffield’s existing infrastructure and understand the commercial viability as well as practical issues with the approach.

Innovative solutions

Innovative solutions such as cable channels and gulleys will be kept under review as the outcomes of trials are further understood, technology developed and practical issues explored.

You cannot currently install a cable gully or channel in the public highway.
