EV chargers to be a mandatory feature in all new homes and offices

On September 9 2021, Transport Minister Rachel Maclean announced new legislation set to be introduced this year which says that electric vehicle (EV) chargers must be built as standard into all new homes and offices.

The legislation, which is the first of its kind globally, comes as it was revealed that only around 500 electric vehicle charging points are being installed each month. This falls significantly short of the... Read full article

In addition to an increase in vehicle size (28 per cent since 1965), the Government has offered discounts of up to £2,500 on low-emission... Read full article
