The UK is a global leader in action against climate change. The UK Government has committed to achieving Net Zero by 2050. As part of the government’s 10 point plan, it has announced a plan to end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 onwards.
The EV market is due to grow significantly within the UK by 2030. There are currently 260,000 battery electric vehicles (BEV) and 280,000 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) in the UK as of May 2021. If the transition to EV’s is successful, this will see all 30 million Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles replaced in the UK with BEVs.
There are currently only 20,000 charge points in the UK. The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has estimated 280,000 will be required by 2030.
Installing an EV charger should be viewed as an engineering project. Most buildings were not designed to charge EV’s therefore electrical infrastructure often doesn’t have sufficient spare capacity to install multiple chargers withmodifications to the infrastructure. It requires careful design and consideration, to ensure suitable chargers are selected and installed in the most cost-effective locations, whilst not impeding the electrical capacity of the building to carry out ‘business as usual’.
