Government is planning to introduce legislation that will require all new homes and offices to feature an EV charging point.

Randolph Brazier, Director of Innovation and Electricity Systems at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:

“Being able to charge your electric vehicle at home or work will be a game changer in the shift to Net Zero transportation. To deliver the underlying infrastructure to support this ambition, electricity networks must be able to make early investments in infrastructure as well as use new and innovative smart grid technologies."
