UK to Convert 60,000 Street Cabinets into EV Chargers

British Telecom Group [is repurposing old green metallic street cabinets](https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-67873890), previously used for broadband and phone cabling, as part of an initiative to address the scarcity of electric vehicle charging points across the UK. The pilot in Scotland anticipates converting up to 60,000 cabinets to meet the government's target of 300,000 charging points by 2030. Notably, a third of the current charging points are concentrated in London.
