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
