Britain’s electric car charging network boosted by £300m funding

The Guardian reports that Britain’s energy regulator, Ofgem, has approved a £300m investment to help triple the number of ultra-rapid electric car charge points across the country, as part of efforts to accelerate the UK’s shift to clean energy

Ofgem has given the green light for energy network companies to invest in more than 200 low-carbon projects across the country over the next two years, including the installation of 1,800 new ultra-rapid car charge points for motorway service stations and a further 1,750 charge points in towns.
