The UK government recently announced a new plan that will require new homes in the UK to have charging points for electric vehicles.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a speech at the annual Confederation of British Industry conference: "We are regulating the installation of electric vehicle charging stations in new homes and buildings, and an additional 145,000 charging stations are currently expected to be installed." It is understood that in Johnson's comments came after the British government released a statement on Sunday adding details of the plan.
From 2022, the plan will apply to buildings undergoing major renovations, in addition to requiring new residential and office spaces, supermarkets and other buildings to install electric vehicle charging stations.
Britain plans to stop the sale of new diesel and petrol cars and vans from 2030, and to achieve this, the UK is building the necessary infrastructure. The UK has also proposed that from 2035, all new cars and vans must achieve zero tailpipe emissions.
