British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday that it would be mandatory to establish charging points for electric vehicles in the UK for new construction as part of a “major renovation” beginning in 2022.
The government hopes to set up 145,000 new charging points each year by new legislation after the United Kingdom sets a 2030 ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars in the country.
During the annual conference of the “CBI” organization of corporate leaders, Johnson presented two positions to the heads of British companies, in which he pointed to “epidemics”, “problems with distribution networks”, “energy prices” and “shortages”. The weight of the workers in the British economy is still declining.
The obligation to set up charging points for electric cars in the UK “from next year” also applies to the construction of “buildings such as new homes and supermarkets or workplaces” and buildings under “major renovations”. The British Prime Minister’s Media Office explained in a statement.
The government says it has so far supported the construction of “over 250,000” charging points in homes and workplaces.
A week after the end of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, he acknowledged that he was “disappointed” by its results, with Johnson announcing a loan program Monday to help the public and private sectors to carbon neutralize debt.
