The Government recently announced electrical vehicle (EV) charging stations will be required for all new homes and businesses in the UK starting in 2022.

The new measurement aims to boost EV adoption in the nation by adding up to 145,000 extra charging points each year.

This will mean people can buy new properties already ready for an electric vehicle future, while ensuring charge points are readily available at new shops and workplaces across the UK — making it as easy as refuelling a petrol or diesel car today.

The UK government has already backed the installation of over 250,000 charging points, so the new rules would increase that by over 50 percent in the first year alone. Buildings like supermarkets and workplaces are included in the law, along with large scale renovations that will have over 10 parking spaces.

Details of the rules, like specifications and power outputs of the installations, have yet to be released.
