All buildings under construction should be equipped with electric car charging facilities from the new year in Britain, according to a bill to be presented by the Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, his services announced yesterday Sunday.
According to Downing Street announcement No. 10, the bill will allow up to 145,000 electric car charging stations to be installed by 2030 a year, when it will no longer allow the sale of new petrol and diesel cars in the UK.
The regulation will apply not only to new housing units, but also to commercial buildings, such as offices and supermarkets. It will also apply to buildings that are being renovated and have at least 10 parking spaces.
The head of the Tory government intends to present the bill in broad terms during his speech at the annual meeting of the British Industry Association today Monday.
Accelerating investment in infrastructure that will facilitate the transition to electric cars is part of the broader strategy for achieving so-called climate neutrality, dubbed Net Zero Strategy. The plan was made public by the Johnson administration last month.
