How do we charge 10 million cars?

How do we charge 10 million cars?

On Friday 26 March, we held the Future of Cars Summit, where, among other things, we discussed how to charge the 10 million electric vehicles expected to be on the UK’s roads by 2030. Listen to what we learned in this audio readout

Now that the UK has committed to banning the sale of internal combustion engines, the National Grid reckons there could be more than 10 million EVs on Britain’s roads by 2030. How will they be charged? Fast, or slow? Is the UK already taking the slow lane when it should be going all-in on rapid charging? Who will set the standards for a new national charging infrastructure? Who will build it, how will we pay for it and where should we locate the charging points?

During a ThinkIn at our Future of Cars Summit, bp helped us find the answers. Listen to our audio readout to hear what we learned.
