Gas 2.0 is reporting that the UK has just announced the world’s first nationwide electric vehicle charging network.

Currently there are only 2,000 EVs in Britain, a tiny portion of the country’s 28 million cars.

Will they be free to use? Check. Will they be green? Check—every one of them will run on wind power. Will they be available in every part of the country? Check.

Unlike other charging stations to date, these will be installed on highways and not in cities.  The hope is that these stations will encourage more Britons to purchase EVs and get Britain started on the path to an electrified transportation future.

The article also produces a map of what the charging station situation will like like by later this year but does not say how many charging stations are to be built.
