Germany’s loading infrastructure has grown over 50 percent in a year

Germany's loading infrastructure has grown over 50 percent in a year-grown

We remember at the beginning of May this year. At that time it was said that in the BDEW charging column register about 17.400 public and part-relevant charging points for Germany are recorded. At the end of 2018 it was about 16.100 and late July 2018 around 13.500. Well, August 2019, records the BDEW charging column register 20.650 public charging points in Germany.

“Within a year, it has succeeded in the number of public charging points of 13.500 to 20.650 to increase. That is an increase of over 50 percent. The energy industry, in particular, has picked up speed here – it operates three quarters of all public charging points.“ – Stefan Kapferer, Chairman of the BDEW Executive Board

And yet Kapferer sees further potential. And this potential lies in the expansion of private charging infrastructure. Because around 85 percent of the charging processes take place at home or at work. However, there is still no corresponding regulation for this. “A corresponding change in tenancy and residential property law does not cost a cent, but would bring electric mobility a big step forward,” Kapferer continues.

Currently, Bavaria and Baden-Wurttemberg are significantly relating to the federal government and emphatically stimulate that the necessary adjustments in home ownership and tenancy law to facilitate the expansion of private charging infrastructure for electric vehicles is implemented in a timely manner. Together they will introduce a bill to promote electromobility in the Bundesrat. The aim is to create sensible measures for climate protection in transport.

By the way, there is enough electricity for the e-cars. Currently, around 13 million e-vehicles can be charged with today’s infrastructure. That corresponds to a share of 30 percent of all cars in Germany. However, local bottlenecks are possible in conurbations with concentrated growth. Therefore, the power grid for e-cars requires more brains than copper… According to the energy supply company, investments in grid expansion are necessary to make the distribution grids more efficient.

  1. The right to install your own charging option I also consider a very important prerequisite.
    Nevertheless, we need considerably more possibilities for the lantern parkers.
    With me in Kaarst at 43.000 inhabitants there is just one (!) public AC column.
    Unfortunately, the charging stations at Aldi and Ikea can only be used during opening hours. So e.g.B. not overnight, which would make a lot of sense in a number of ways, or on Sundays and public holidays.
