City to become the electric vehicle Capital of Europe
It is part of the Mayor's plans for London to become the electric vehicle Capital of Europe.
The Source London network will create a single visual identity for electric driving in the city, and allow members to charge their vehicles at any one of these points for a £100 annual membership fee, which includes the cost of electricity.
Currently electric vehicle drivers have to register in each separate borough they want to use charge points.
A new website, www.sourcelondon.net, has also been launched to provide a 'one-stop shop' for information about electric vehicles, the benefits and where to buy them, as well as case studies and a map showing charge point locations.
When Source London launches next year, drivers will be able to sign up for the scheme online.
Transport for London is working closely with the boroughs and a wide range of private sector partners to develop the network.
All will play a key part in funding and providing charging point locations.
Discussions are now taking place with other UK cities developing networks to ensure they can be used seamlessly by electric vehicle drivers and that London's work can contribute to a national network.
Kulveer Ranger, the Mayor's Transport Adviser, said: 'Source London will make it far easier for people to charge electric vehicles in the Capital, removing one of the biggest barriers to ownership and giving a big boost to this fledgling market.
'With our offer to allow other cities to use the Source brand the Mayor's work on electric vehicles heralds the start of an electric revolution here and further afield.'
Electric vehicles - the benefits
The Mayor has reaffirmed a 100 per cent discount from London's Congestion Charge for electric vehicle drivers, as well as other low-emission vehicles, which could potentially save drivers more than £2,000 a year.
It could also save them hundreds of pounds in petrol costs.
