UK Government Says It’s Unnecessary to Establish Targets or Provide Support for Plug-In Vehicles

Let’s hope this doesn’t signal the start of a trend.

Recently, the UK’s Transport Select Committee submitted its report, titled “Plugged in Policy?” The report focused on plug-in vehicles, including adoption, charging, and sales. The UK’s government officials reviewed “Plugged in Policy?” and arrived at the general conclusion that it’s not necessary to establish targets for plug-in vehicle sales and that it’s not the duty of government to standardize charging points or otherwise support the growth of plug-in vehicles.

The government arrived at this conclusion despite recommendations to the contrary presented by one of the government’s Common Select Committees. The committee suggested that the government explain how it will standardize the plug-in vehicle infrastructure, which in this case includes charging requirements (connectors, locations, fees) and financial incentives for plug-in vehicle buyers.

The government rejected the idea that it should be involved in this process, instead stating “There are advantages to a single recharging plug solution… it is our stance that it is for the market and industry to decide what charging hardware and infrastructure will be.”
