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

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.”
