All New Homes & Offices in the UK to Have EV Charging Points Installed Obligatorily From 2022

From 2022 it will become mandatory for all new homes and offices to have an electric vehicle (EV) charging points installed as standards. This is a bold move by the government as it prepares to ban the sale of all new petrol and diesel cars.
The UK will become the first country in the world to make EV car chargers installation mandatory for new buildings.

The $4000 Electric Car Dominating China

American-Chinese joint venture SAIC-GM are taking the Chinese market by storm with their Mini EV, with sales rivalling even the likes of Tesla. But what does it mean for the companies, for China, and for the rest of the world? There seems to be a distinct barrier around China when it comes to trading - things don’t quite work like they do between the US and, let’s say, the UK.

Restrictions are placed on what can be imported as well as exported via its borders. But Chinese motor company SAIC, the name behind the revival of British brand MG, has teamed up with multinational giant General Motors to come up with a mass market electric car. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ytqr8T05OU

Designed with city use in mind, this car has a battery life of only 75miles but as traveling to work in China journeys are approximately only 6miles, this presents no problems because the cars can be charged at home over night and there is no need for external charging. If you are traveling long distances, you should use public transports such as the electric train.

Deforistation and carbon emissions are two of the main causes of Climate Chaing. We need to help Mother Nature by retaining the green spaces we have. Also planting more trees upstream will help. We need the right Houses built in the right places that do not cause downstream flooding. Solar panels & Electric Cars will help curb carbon emissions. Statment by Michael Meredith.
