A 2021 legislation will be introduced by the British government which will require all newly built homes and offices to include electric vehicle chargers in England. All new homes and offices will be required to feature ‘smart’ charging devices which can, during off-peak periods, automatically charge vehicles. Electrek reported that new office blocks will need to install a charge point for every five parking spaces.
This is a world first – an initiative which will also help boost the confidence of those who transition from gas cars to overcome range anxiety. Many homes in England don’t have off-street parking or garages but the proposal is part of the movement to rapidly boost the number of chargers across England ahead of the 2030 Uk ban on new fossil-fuel vehicles. The mandate is expected to kick off in 2022.
