Not a chance !
We know that the power grid has been reported several times as not having a lot of headroom as a number of older less efficient power stations were turned off.
Moving the power generation from within the car / van / lorry to a power station means that they will need more power generation and huge amounts of it. This will take a very long time to plan and build, so I guess this is where the nuclear option comes in. It makes sense as its going to be a lot of base load. I thought those stations take 10-15 years to get approved and start build due to the safety and planning involved ?
Then there will need to be a way to get it from the stations to the consumers, so presumably some upgrades to the national grid to get the significantly higher amounts of power around, that will take time.
Then there is the little tiny problem of getting it from the substations to the cars on peoples drives and on street corners. I'm not just talking about one or two little charging nodes like we have today, but large numbers of them, which means complete streets will need connections and the connections will need to be uniform so that anyone can plug in any car, so that means standardisation across the industry - impacting existing electric cars.
How will this work with the crazy small plots that houses are crammed into - where will the kit go, how will it be safely maintained. Same issue for flats and car parks where the spaces are already too small.
How will it handle people with more than one car - many have 2 cars, some more (i.e. with the kids are growing up but still at home)
Then they have to get the distances up so that people can get from A to B in one go without having to take long charging breaks. This means full cars where people are moving things around, not just one person doing a daily commute - all the workloads need considering.
A whole set of new cars will need to exist that can use the new charging stations, so changes to what each manufacturer does today.
I fail to see how anyone with any basic understanding of the work involved could realistically say that this will be done in 9 years. Started within a decade, yes, but completed for everyone - not a chance.
Now add in the idea that all heating moves to electric and gas is not used any more - do the whole same thing again re power and stations
Rinse and repeat for motorbikes, scooters, lawn mowers, 2 stroke garden tools etc since without a set of cars consuming petrol and diesel, the chance of getting fuel for all the other engine types will decrease too.
So, what we are realistically being asked to accept as an idea is a complete move from the main power source for everything outside of the house to something that has struggled to take off over several decades and that this will magically happen at the same time as the aftermath from Brexit and at a point where the country is increasingly screwed due to COVID and many businesses are struggling or have already failed.
I wonder how those businesses will cope with replacing their entire fleet of vehicles - vans, HGV's etc with the supposed new models in the same time frame.
Its almost like we are trying to get to a point where its impossible to live with a reasonable lifestyle.
We also need to think about if we have a single charging network with one standard to make it flexible, what happens when we need to change it in 5 years time to some newer, faster charging method to fix say the issue of how long a vehicle takes to charge.
The yard stick is that we can re-charge our vehicles in about 3 minutes, so its going to be hard to tempt people away from that level of flexibility.
