From 2030, electrical charging points will have to be installed in all new homes and offices by law

Actions are being taken to address serious concerns about the lack of infrastructure preventing people from adopting electrical engineering.

This is good news for the industry, but people without private parking will still scratch their heads wondering why those in power keep forgetting them.

The news that the installation of electric charging points is a legal requirement is somewhat inevitable as battery electric cars account for about 10% of new vehicle sales in the UK and plug-in hybrids account for about 7%.

Another requirement will be that they are intelligent chargers. This contributes to smooth power consumption by charging overnight and avoids overloading the power grid. The move aims to dramatically increase the rate at which charging stations are being built so that the government can meet its 2030 target for banning new gasoline and diesel cars.

Yesterday ministers admitted that only around 500 plug-in points are installed each month – far less than the 700 per day that industry officials say are needed.
