I have no objections to electric cars charge points in new build houses but are there not more important things that could be put in new houses. Surely a sprinkler system to stop fires should get priority. There may well be other suggestions as to what should be included in every new house. What if anything do you think should be build in as standard on all new houses
Electric Vehicles are evolving quite fast at the present. I doubt that the Fuelling Systems of today will be that similar to those in 5 years time. Let alone 20 years time.
It is my opinion that Urban & Metropolitan Car Owners will be few and far between in 10 years time. Possibly replaced by On-Demand Vehicles, of the autonomous, self guided variety, either on a fee for each journey basis, Leased or Co-Owned
A sprinkler system in every new house is over the top for the risk involved in my opinion but hard wired smoke alarms would make sense if they are not already mandatory.
Besides charging points we need space for multiple vehicles per household. Modest semis on the street where I live generally have a commuting car per adult plus some have a weekend sports car or a motorhome or caravan on the drive.
I think new builds should have very high insulation levels ; solar panels plus one of those new batteries that means you are more than self sufficient. New homes like these would be inked to the National grid to form , in the future, millions of mini power stations. Providing a charging point without carbon capture at power stations merely transfers pollution from road to power station.
