British media said that all new buildings in the UK will be equipped with electric vehicle charging piles from next year.
According to the British "Daily Mail" website, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that from next year, new homes and new buildings will be equipped with electric vehicle charging piles.
Speaking at the confederation of British industry's annual meeting, Boris Johnson announced legislation to drive a "revolution" in electric vehicles.
According to the law, new homes, supermarkets and workplaces will have to install charging piles, which is standard. Houses undergoing large-scale renovations will also undergo configuration upgrades.
Johnson said: "We will require new homes and buildings to be equipped with electric vehicle charging piles, and in accordance with these regulations, an additional 145,000 charging piles will be installed." ”
"We are investing in new projects to convert wind power into hydrogen, and the investment in this ten-point scheme has already attracted around 90 billion private sector investments," he said. ”
Downing Street called the move "world-leading" and hoped that charging electric cars would become as easy as refueling in the future.
Musk: The federal government should eliminate subsidies for electric vehicles and charging piles
On November 19, local time, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Rebuilding a Better Future Act worth about $1.75 trillion, which proposes to provide an additional $4,500 per car federal tax credit for electric vehicles produced at factories where union members work. However, auto factories, including automakers such as Tesla and Toyota, do not have unions and are therefore not eligible for the subsidy.
On December 6, local time, Musk said in an interview with Joanna Stern, a technology writer at the Wall Street Journal, that the government should cancel all subsidies for electric vehicles.
"If I had to decide, I would cancel this bill." Musk said the U.S. Congress should not approve the Biden administration's electric vehicle subsidy bill, which he believes will increase the fiscal deficit and worsen the U.S. economy.
Musk has repeatedly slammed the Biden administration's bill. On October 30, local time, Musk said bluntly on Twitter: "Biden is a puppet of the UAW (National Automobile Workers Federation)." ”
Not only that, Musk also said in an interview that the US federal government's funding for electric vehicle charging facilities is also unnecessary.
On Nov. 15, Biden just signed into law the largest infrastructure improvement bill in the United States in more than half a century, including $7.5 billion in infrastructure for charging station networks.
Musk said, "Do we need to support the construction of gas stations? Not at all. (this bill) should be deleted. ”
