City & Guilds Electric Vehicle Charging Installations Level 3
In a nutshell
The UK Government has a target to become a net-aero economy by 2050. To work towards this target, the ban on new diesel and petrol car production is being implemented from 2023 and this is driving the electric vehicle market. One in six new electric vehicles sold in the UK has a plug, so the will be an increasing demand across the country to provide the infrastructure to charge electric vehicles which includes domestic charging points.
