PM announces electric vehicle revolution

24 Nov 2021

New homes and buildings such as supermarkets and workplaces, as well as those undergoing major renovation, will be required to install electric vehicle charge points from next year, under new legislation announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Up to 145,000 extra charge points will be installed across England each year under the new regulations.

As well as new homes and non-residential buildings, those undergoing largescale renovations which leaves them with over ten parking spaces will be required to install electric vehicle charge points.

The government will also be introducing simpler ways to pay whilst travelling, such as contactless, at all new fast and rapid charge points.

Mr Johnson said: 'This is a pivotal moment – we cannot go on as we are. We have to adapt our economy to the green industrial revolution. We have to use our massive investment in science and technology, and we have to raise our productivity.

'We will require new homes and buildings to have EV charging points – with another 145,000 charging points to be installed thanks to these regulations.

'We are investing in new projects to turn wind power into hydrogen and our net zero strategy is expected to trigger about £90 billion of private sector investment, driving the creation of high wage high skilled jobs as part of our mission to unite and level up across the country.'
