United Kingdom confirms obligation to install charging points for electric cars in new homes
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, just confirmed which would approve new regulations that would force new construction of homes and offices, to Install charging points for electric cars, A proposal that will already come into force in 2022 and is aimed at facilitating the expansion of electricity which is underway at full speed across British territory.
And that of the cars sold in the United Kingdom in October, at least 23.1% were pure electric (a 15.2% share) or plug-in hybrid (a 7.9% share). Something they hope to be able to reinforce and even accelerate with this new regulation.
This would mean that new constructions, whether residential home, office, as well as commercial place such as supermarketThey have to install charging points for electric cars from the very first moment.
Thanks to this condition and the support of the public network, the British government hopes that from 2022 they will be established at least on its territory. 145,000 new charging points every year, A figure we can refer to with the current network of islands, which is made up of about 25,000 public points.
Many public stations, which need to be multiplied by 10 by 2030, to be able to service the fleet of electric vehicles that existed to that date.
The goal is to build a system robust enough to be able to meet the goal of eliminating sales of cars with combustion engines and hybrids by 2030. An ever-closer date that would require an extensive public but private recharging network.
With extensive infrastructure, the government indicates that the next objective is to make it easy to use by all owners, and that recharging an electric car is as easy as refueling a diesel or gasoline car. Something that they will work towards interoperability systems and contactless payments.
