Rolton Group coverage on developer-update.co.uk
Chris Evans, Deputy Managing Director of Rolton Group, examines the UK’s energy infrastructure given the growing electric vehicle trend across UK suburbs. Electric vehicles (EVs) are rapidly becoming the must-have purchase for today’s green homeowner. The potential fuel savings, combined with government incentives and innovations from automotive manufacturers mean there are over 108,000 full electric or hybrid EVs on our roads, according to The Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders, with more than a 20-fold increase over the past three years alone. This number is only set to grow further given the latest government announcement outlawing the sale of all solely diesel and petrol cars by 2040. This influx of EVs has major implications for the UK’s built environment in years to come.
