EU points the way- EV infrastructure obligations on new buildings


By Richard Walford

MEPs votes  overwhelmingly in support of advancing new proposals to make the provision of EV charging points on new property development or renovations comprising more than 10 parking spaces. Although Brexit may be just around the corner UK developers would do well to have regard to the progress of these changes which could be followed in the UK and provide additional infrastructure challenges for new development.

Industry Committee of MEPs overwhelmingly backs proposals for new long term energy efficiency goals and electric vehicle charging standards All new or renovated buildings in the EU with more than 10 parking spaces could soon be required to install electric vehicle charge points, in a bid to accelerate the roll out of zero emission vehicles across the bloc. MEPs on the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy last week overwhelmingly voted - by 51 to one with 11 abstentions - to approve wide-ranging proposals to update the Directive for Energy Performance of Buildings to introduce new long term energy efficiency goals and require the wider installation of charge points.
