It’s now mandatory that new buildings in the UK will be required to install electric vehicle charging points starting next year. This was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson who said these changes are as a result of a recent legislation.
The Prime Minister said this new legislation will result to 145,000 extra EV charging points in England annually all through to 2030 when sale of new diesel and petrol cars will stop in the country.
This new directive will apply to new homes and to non-residential buildings including offices and supermarkets, the directive will also apply to building undergoing large-scale renovations which will leave the buildings with more than 10 parking slots.
Last month, British government published a Net Zero Strategy document which focused on boosting investment in infrastructure to facilitate a paradigm shift to electric vehicles and other forms of green energies.
