Ofgem has outlined the ways it will support the roll-out of electric vehicles.
Randolph Brazier, Director of Innovation & Electricity Systems at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:
“Working with a flexible regulator has allowed the networks to bring forward investment of £300 million to support a Green Recovery, much of which will enable the connection of more charging points. The ability to make early investments like this, as well as developing innovative solutions to enable a better, Net Zero energy system for customers across the country, is one we welcome."
