Shadow business secretary, Ed Miliband MP, will today outline plans to accelerate the roll-out of electric vehicle charging points across the country.

“Electricity network operators are ready to support both customers and a green economic recovery by laying the foundations of an electric vehicle revolution. Investing in electricity networks now and making sure that charging points are smart will empower customers, keep their costs down and make the networks even more flexible and efficient.”
