Recently, I learned from the International Energy Network that currently, the green transformation of transportation has become the core driving force for achieving sustainable development goals. BT Group has launched a new pilot scheme to convert redundant roadside telephone access cabinets and broadband boxes into electric vehicle charging facilities.

Recently, I learned from the International Energy Network that currently, the green transformation of transportation has become the core driving force for achieving sustainable development goals. BT Group has launched a new pilot scheme to convert redundant roadside telephone access cabinets and broadband boxes into electric vehicle charging facilities.The scheme, which will be run by its subsidiary Etc, recently installed the first car charger on a cabinet in East Lothian, Scotland.

The first phase of this pilot program will include a number of cabinet retrofits. BT believes it can convert around 60,000 of its 90,000 cabinets in the UK into charging facilities. There is no doubt that this move will greatly improve the penetration of public chargers in the UK.

According to the latest data from Zap-Map, as of the end of November 2023, there are only 53,029 public charging piles in the UK, of which 42,941 charging piles can only provide 3kW~22kW power. This power is no different from the roadside street light power supply system.

Vishal Kaduthodil, senior product manager at Etc, explained: "These cabinets currently provide broadband services to every home. As full fiber broadband is promoted across the country, they will be gradually decommissioned." "We will retrofit the equipment to distribute existing It has the power capability to maintain existing broadband services and support a new charging point."
He points out that every time an area is upgraded to a fiber network, BT can remove redundant broadband cabling and convert these cabinets into EV charging facilities that can "accommodate multiple charging connectors", as opposed to building dedicated charging stations. Compared with this, the transformation of signal cabinets has obvious advantages in terms of speed.

In addition, the British government is actively seeking Chinese automakers to build factories in the country, which has attracted widespread attention. It is understood that Chinese electric vehicles are in a leading position globally. Therefore, the introduction of Chinese electric vehicles can not only bring advanced technology and green travel concepts, but also help promote the transformation and upgrading of the British automobile industry.
In addition, Sino-British cooperation is not only beneficial to the economic development of both sides, but also helps promote environmental protection. China is leading in electric vehicle technology. If Chinese electric vehicles are introduced, it will play a positive role in achieving the UK's environmental goals and create more local jobs. China-UK cooperation should abandon prejudice and short-sightedness and seek long-term development together. At the same time, when introducing Chinese electric vehicles, technical review and safety supervision can be strengthened to eliminate worries.
China's electric vehicle technology has always been in a leading position in the world. Its development not only represents advanced technological levels, but also reflects a high level of concern for environmental protection and sustainable development. The introduction of Chinese electric vehicles will bring advanced technology and green travel concepts to the UK and help promote the transformation and upgrading of the British automobile industry.
