Britain is set to introduce mandatory charging points for electric cars in new buildings

There are currently about 25,000 charging points in the UK.

From 2022, new buildings in the UK will be fitted with chargers for electric cars. This was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday.

Johnson, who recently hosted the COP26 Climate Change Summit, told leading businesses that legislation would be enacted to reduce charging requirements as part of plans to reduce carbon emissions in new homes, supermarkets and workplaces in the UK.

Under the law, about 145,000 new charging points would have to be added per year, and this responsibility would apply to major renovation projects as well.

“New homes and buildings should have charging points for electric vehicles,” Johnson told the British Confederation of Indian Industry (CBI) annual meeting.

This is another step to ban sales of new diesel and petrol cars in Great Britain and Northern Ireland from 2030, and is part of an effort to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Johnson wants Britain to be at the forefront of a global effort to move zero emissions, which could help the economy recover from the new corona virus outbreak.

There are currently about 25,000 charging points in the UK. However, the Competition and Markets Regulatory Commission estimates that more than 10 times that number will be needed by 2030.
