Electric cars need more chargers in the UK, so the infrastructure will be expanded directly under construction law. New homes should already be built with a charger for electric cars, with offices having a charger in every fifth place.
Government analysis suggests that the United Kingdom needs to increase its analytical infrastructure by 10 times by 2030 to withstand the electrification of passenger and public transport. Currently, shopping malls, large office complexes and some homes have just 25,000 chargers in its region.
However, from 2022, the number of chargers should start to increase rapidly. Every newly built home should already have a charger, and in the case of office buildings, every fifth parking lot should have access to a charger.
2030 is the UK’s border line as it plans to ban the sale of new vehicles with internal combustion engines.
The draft law specifically provides for so-called “smart chargers”, which charge electric cars parked outside the power peak, i.e. during the day in general. We will have to wait for the specific details of the new building law and it should be ready this year.
