Scottish building regs to put EV chargers in new developments

2022-08-12 14:16:07  News

To phase out the need for new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030, the Scottish Government has said it will legislate to ensure developers provide electric vehicle (EV) charge points in the construction of new residential and non-residential buildings.

The updated building regulations would mean that new residential buildings with a parking space have at least one EV charge point with a minimum 7kW rating.

For new non-residential buildings with more than 10 parking spaces, 1 in every 10 would be expected to provide an EV charge point socket with a minimum 7kW rating.

The policy proposals also detail requirements for residential and non-residential buildings undergoing a major renovation to provide charge points. 

These changes will provide a minimum standard that developers will need to consider going forward. 

The proposals were published following a consultation titled ‘Scottish Building Regulations: Proposed Changes to Energy Standards Including Ventilation, Overheating and Electric Vehicle Charging Provision consultation'.
