The technology exists...
...But it requires investment.
Currently, Ofgem is holding up the installation and utilisation of renewable energy sources, delaying progress by up to a decade.
Ofgem’s latest plans would result in National Grid being able to facilitate the connection and charging of 22% (311,849) fewer electric vehicles than their stakeholder determined target of 1.5 million.
Delaying this essential investment into our infrastructure could add up to 5 years to regional net zero goals, and reduces access to essential technologies like EV charging points, as well as artificially driving up the costs of heat pumps and energy storage - making greater energy bill rises more likely in the future.
