Quick Linketz decided: Legal basis for 1.000 fast load hubs-linketz

At the beginning of February was adopted by the Bundesbabinet, which was adopted by Federal Minister Andreas Scheuer for the provision of the provision of nationwide fast load infrastructure for pure battery electric vehicles – fast-loading law. Thus, the legal basis was created to build the planned tender to build a public fast-loading network with 1.To tackle 000 locations.

With the adoption of the law, the Federal Cabinet reacts to the fact that the meanwhile multi-year funding programs to build a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles is not sufficient to ensure the construction quickly, reliably, as needed, nationwide and consumer-friendly. Above all, locations are negative, which is slightly or only temporary – BSPW. In holiday periods – have an increased charging deposit. If charging points are available at all in such locations, then usually only with a normal charging power (of at most 22 kW). What is related to the fact that so far not specifically nationwide the fast shop (with over 100 kW) was forced.

So-called rapid loading points with high performance has so far significantly too little. At least if you look at the view of future available vehicles and the intended medium / long-distance use. Less than two percent of all charging points have a charging power of at least 100 kW. Definitely too little for the market cabinet and the already occurring E-offensive of automobile manufacturers.

“The next fast loading column must be available in a few minutes. To get closer to this goal, we want 1 nationwide.Build 000 fast load hubs up to 2023. The fast-loading law is a fundamental prerequisite to start the Europe-wide tender and thus the construction of the new locations. Only with a nationwide and user-friendly charging infrastructure, we create it that more people can change to climate-friendly e-cars and load with renewable energies. Especially the fast shop with over 150 kilowatts is crucial for long-distance suitability of e-cars. We want to make mobility with better air, less noise and above all less CO2.”- Andreas Scheuer, Federal Minister

Scheuer gives to understand that the supplement of the funding policy is an important step towards e-mobility. First of all, the structure and operation of a nationwide high-speed network should be 1.000 locations in the context of a Europe-wide tender. The aim is that the rapid store network should cover the need for medium and long-distance mobility on highways and important locations in urban space. The access must be public and possible around the clock. Whether the fast loading locations are on public or private reason.

“Looking at the objective for 2030, these locations make only a small proportion of the necessary overall network. However, they are already necessary for a forward-looking infrastructure expansion to increase the acceptance and attractiveness of battery-electrical mobility, “the current press release of the BMVI. In this is clearly communicated that the federal government is not self-operator of charging devices. Rather, infrastructure structure for the market prevention of E-vehicles should be guaranteed by long-term contracts with operators.

The tendering of an HPC (High Power Charging) loading infrastructure with a power per loading point of at least 150 kW, which ensures fast loading for medium and long distance mobility. The Europe-wide call for tenders is carried out in several loosenes to allow not only a provider to set up the rapid store network. There are 66 to 100 locations per lot. It is planned that the federal government will select several operators, which then build and operate the charging columns on his behalf. The operators are legally obliged to build the charging pillars in well-defined regions, in a certain time frame and with appropriate standards.

“The fast-loading network may be a chance for expanding the fast-loading infrastructure, but it must not endanger existing competition and inventory infrastructure. Charging infrastructure must be constructed as needed, customizable and cost-effective. For companies that have already been invested and involving charging points, it must be ensured that their existing business models can continue to exist in the market. Therefore, it is elementary that the tenders take the inventory infrastructure adequately, set in cost efficiency and ensure real competition.”- Kerstin Andreae, Chairman of the BDEW-General Management

Andreae also states that state commitment ends again as soon as electromobility has established itself in the market. “This exit scenario is missing. The target achievement itself is not defined in the law. The concept of area coverage is stretchable and gives no indication of when it is reached or in which regions these even has already been achieved, “the chairman of the BDEW main management continues.

Is it according to the BDEW, the National Platform Future of Mobility has already developed a definition and recommendations for implementation that could serve as a basis in BDEW eyes. “Here we go from a long-distance area in long-distance traffic, if along the main axis axes every 30-50 km is a quick load site,” says the association. For the construction of the fast load infrastructure, a volume of around 2 billion euros is planned. The federal government will participate here proportionally, as far as this is necessary according to the results of the tender. With the tender of the 1.000 locations should be started in the summer 2021.

  1. Right so Mr. Scheuer, first serious, economic expansion of EnBW in the germ suffocate, with new tenant rights, quarrel for reimbursement for electrification of stock parking garages between tenants, owners and ownership communities maximally heated, unansuiting AC pillar promotion for municipal works that the things as a billboard and use the E motorist as a free parking, maintain upright.
    Of course, the discounters were dangerous, which have more than enough space to be exactly the most sensible places and even wanted to contribute free by solar electricity for free. But as Handleanger of the Burning Lobby, they have worked exemplary – with pads of a public pillar (application maratone, calibration law, etc.) And conveyance because no 24/7 access has obviously done the topic – Bravo !
