ENGLAND - FIRST COUNTRY TO MANDATE NEW HOMES TO INSTALL EV CHARGERS

ENGLAND - FIRST COUNTRY TO MANDATE NEW HOMES TO INSTALL EV CHARGERS

Context:

England is the 1st country to mandate new homes to install EV chargers. The British government has announced to introduce legislation in 2021, under which all the newly built homes and offices will be required to feature electric vehicle chargers in England.

About the New Legislation:

  • Under the legislation, all new homes and offices will have to feature smart charging devices which can automatically charge vehicles during off-peak periods.
  • New office blocks will have to install a charging point for every 5 parking spaces.
  • The legislation is part of the movement that aims to boost the number of chargers in England ahead of the UK’s 2030 ban on new fossil-fuel vehicles.
  • Home and office EV charger proposals are expected to begin in 2022.

Purpose of the Legislation:

  • It will also boost confidence in helping those who transition from gas cars to overcome range anxiety, as so many homes in England don't have off-street parking or garages.
  • The proposal is part of the movement to rapidly boost the number of chargers across England ahead of the UK's 2030 ban of new fossil-fuel vehicles.

Background:

  • The government originally announced a proposal to mandate that all new homes have a charge point with a parking space in 2019.
