UK PM ANNOUNCES NEW EV CHARGE POINT BUILDING REGULATIONS

22nd Nov 2021

UK PM Boris Johnson, in a speech to the CBI annual conference on Monday November 22, has announced that new homes and buildings such as supermarkets and workplaces will be required to install electric vehicle charge points from 2022.

The regulations are intended to provide for the installation of up to 145,000 extra charge points per year in the run up to 2030 when the sale of new petrol and diesel cars will end.

In addition, any large-scale renovation projects that provide over 10 parking spaces will be required to install electric vehicle charge points.

In his speech to the CBI, PM Boris Johnson said:

“This is a pivotal moment – we cannot go on as we are. We have to adapt our economy to the green industrial revolution. We have to use our massive investment in science and technology and we have to raise our productivity and then get out of your way.

“We must regulate less or better and take advantage of new freedoms.”

Tony Danker, Director-General of the CBE was delighted at the initiative.

“What the Prime Minister set out today on EV charging is exactly the kind of detail we need to drive the necessary investment for a high-growth economy.

“That mix of high ambition and focused detail can provide a blueprint for how government and business can work together to turn political aspiration into boardroom action.

The Government has also confirmed that it is providing funding to a new hydrogen project near Glasgow. The Whitelee green hydrogen project will develop the UK’s largest system for converting water to hydrogen gas as a way to store energy and supply local transport providers with zero-carbon fuel.

Last but no least, approval process for non-UK driving licenses is very smooth and…
