New Homes Mandatory to have an Electric Car Charger: England
England has made it mandatory to have electric car charging points in the new buildings by the next year. The government has announced that it is planning to set up around 145,000 charging points each year. The United Kingdom has aimed to switch the use of petrol and diesel cars with electric cars by 2030.
The UK currently has about 25,000 charging points, but the competition and market authority has estimated it to be 10 times more by 2030. Multiple auto manufacturers have claimed to launch electric vehicles by 2035 by signing a pledge only to sell electric vehicles at the COP26 summit.
But there is still a lack of charging infrastructure. If the process does not speed up then there can be a risk of charging black spots across small towns and rural areas. Transport Select Committee has said that the use of home charging will be cost-efficient as compared to public charging.
