Mandatory residential EV chargers a potential game changer

"The United Kingdom’s Department of Transport is proposing to make EV chargers in new residential buildings mandatory. In Canada, so far only British Columbia seems committed to the idea.

The UK’s new protocol, which applies only in England and is slated to take effect in 2020, requires new residential buildings with one parking space to have at least a seven kilowatt charger and a universal socket. Details were recently laid out in a government consultation that closes on October 7.

Residential buildings undergoing major renovations will need to install cabling routes in each parking space, while non-residential buildings, with more than 10 parking spaces, being renovated have to install cabling routes in every fifth space. Non-residential buildings not undergoing renovations with more than 20 spaces are required to install at least one charger by 2025."
