New households in England will have to have statutory electric vehicle charging stations starting next year in an attempt to distract drivers from gasoline and diesel cars.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce the new law on Monday in a speech to the annual conference of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).
And he will say that not only need new homes, supermarkets and workplaces to be installed, but also those that are undergoing major renovations.
The government has already announced that it will end sales of new gasoline and diesel cars in the UK in 2030 and is hoping the new laws will provide up to 145,000 new charging points each year.
Mr Johnson is expected to say, “We are going to require new homes and buildings to have EV charging points – and thanks to those regulations, another 145,000 charging points will need to be installed.
“We are investing in new projects to convert wind power to hydrogen and our net zero strategy is expected to generate around £ 90 billion in private sector investment and drive the creation of high quality, high paying jobs as part of our mission to unite and level us .” throughout the country.”
Downing Street called the move a “world leader” and the hope is that charging an electric vehicle will be as easy as filling up with fuel.
In addition to new and non-residential buildings, those that carry out extensive renovations and therefore have more than 10 parking spaces must install charging points.
Mr Johnson is expected to tell the CBI conference that the UK can take advantage of acting first to transform the world economy and move towards net zero.
In his speech, Johnson is expected to add, “This is a crucial 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 investments in science and technology and we have to increase our productivity and then we have to get out of the way.
“We have to regulate less or better and use new freedoms.”
