The G15 responds to electric vehicle smart charging consultation
- 8 October 2019
On 15 July 2019, the Government began a consultation on proposals for electric vehicle chargepoint smart technology regulations.
The proposed regulations would require that electric vehicle chargepoints sold or installed in the UK have smart charging functionality included.
The Government invited organisations to respond to specific questions on the proposals and we have formally submitted our response.
The G15 welcomes the Government’s desire to improve the availability of electric chargepoints. As responsible landlords, we’re concerned about the environmental impact of cars and traffic around our homes and on our residents and are keen to support a future where roads are used by more environmentally friendly cars. We agree that improving charging networks and placing more chargepoints in residential developments will encourage the use of EVs, as it will be easier and more convenient for residents to run them from their homes.
We feel that there are several areas on which we would highlight challenges or ask for further clarification in the following:
- Retrospective fitting
- Equity of Access
- Grid and supply capacity
