In the United Kingdom, the federal government began to create a plan to massify electric adoption. According to Bloomberg, very soon homebuilders will be forced to deliver new residential units with chargers already installed in the garages.
The idea is to eliminate the problem of the lack of structure for charging vehicles with electricity so that this is no longer an impediment for the consumer to buy cars and motorcycles with this type of propulsion. Even with the effort of brands such as Tesla to create its own charging stations, electric cars are still far from being as convenient as those fueled by combustion, which can be fueled in virtually any corner.
We do not have details on what this requirement could be for the installation of chargers in new garages, but this can be a major breakthrough for people living in condominiums where it is not possible to simply install chargers and use the building’s common electricity. In such cases, these devices will probably have their own meters.
Aside from this initiative, the British government will also study the deployment of car chargers on public roads, coupled with poles. Thus, users could park and load their vehicles on the streets at the same time. Finally, £40 million will also be invested in research into charging electric cars.
