Charging points mapped; Motors briefs.
THE LOCATIONS of charging points for plug-in vehicles are to be systematically mapped across the country to make it easier for motorists to go electric. The National Chargepoint Registry will be a publicly-accessible database of charge points across the UK. And a new Central Whitelist system will be created to make it easier for motorists to access each charge point without having to sign up to new schemes each time they charge in a different location. Transport Minister Norman Baker said: "We know there is public appetite out there for plug-in vehicles and as government we're doing everything possible to make them a real option for both motorists and industry."
