The British government will require installing charging stations for electric cars in all new homes and buildings from next year. Various British media reported this on Monday.
The new legislation should provide up to 145,000 new charging points per year. The BBC says that new supermarkets, offices, and buildings undergoing major renovations will also fall under the new law.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce the new measure later Monday at an industry federation conference.
The United Kingdom wants to prohibit the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030.
