Electric Car Charging

Electric car chargepoints to be installed in all future homes in world first

All new-build homes could soon be fitted with an electric car chargepoint, the government has outlined today (15 July 2019) in a public consultation on changing building regulations in England. The consultation comes alongside a package of announcements to support electric vehicle drivers and improve the experience of charging.

Plans include:

  • all new-build homes could be fitted with an electric car chargepoint as record levels of ultra-low emission vehicles hit UK roads
  • England set to be first country to introduce mandatory chargepoints in new homes, cementing position as global leader in race to net zero emissions
  • government also consulting on ‘smart’ charging, to help allow consumers save money by charging EVs off-peak

Here at Stratford Energy Solutions we offer a number of solutions for developers in the new build market.

Funding for thousands of electric car charge points unused by councils

OLEV issued a press release 12th January stating Ministers have written to local councils urging them to take up electric car charge-point funding.

Ministers Jesse Norman and Claire Perry have called for local authorities to do more to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle air quality after it emerged just 5 councils in the whole of the UK have taken advantage of an electric car scheme.

Government urges local authorities to take advantage of a £4.5million pot which could help people around the country join the electric car revolution

Also the Electric Vehicle Homecharge & Plug-in Car Grant schemes have been extended to help motorists make the switch to electric.
