Plug-in Vehicle Recharging . The Electric Future

The Government, motor manufacturers and vehicle charge point providers are collectively investing billions of pounds in delivering a ‘plug-in future’ for the UK.
 
The Government is using the motoring tax regime to encourage the uptake of ultra-low and zero emission vehicles and is giving financial support through grants for plug-in cars and vans and home and workplace vehicle charge points – as well as cash to local authorities to install charge points – to encourage demand.
 
Ultimately the UK Government says it will end the sale of new conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2040 and by 2050 wants almost every car and van on the roads to be zero emission.
 
A critical aspect of achieving those goals, according to Jesse Norman, Future of Mobility Minister, is “getting the right infrastructure in place”.
