Study reveals urgent need for public charging points-need

With increasing electrification of traffic, the need for private and publicly accessible charging points is growing. According to the results of a new study by the German Energy Agency (DENA), Germany has a great potential of 8 to 12 million private charging points in buildings with one or two apartments, but only a potential of 0.45 to 1.8 million Private charging points in buildings with three or more apartments. For compacted living rooms with multi-family buildings, and this, especially in regions with strong purchasing power, therefore requires the authors of a concentrated and increased construction of the publicly accessible charging infrastructure to enable the politically desired sales of electric vehicles.

For consumers living in buildings with one or two residential units, the study sees sufficient potential in most areas of Germany in the coming years, to load their electric car on a private wallbox or socket. However, a critical ratio of private charging infrastructure to electric cars is expected in purchased regions. These are the central results of a study by the German Energy Agency (DENA) and PROGNOS AG on behalf of the energy company EnBW, which can be viewed here as a complete PDF.

“Prerequisite for the most urgent market hood of electromobility are attractive vehicles and the corresponding charging infrastructure. It is good that the manufacturers will spend their portfolio significantly in the future. Only when electric cars are available in different sizes, electromobility is also interesting for broader consumer groups. However, this also grows the need for access to private and publicly available charging infrastructure. As the new study shows, it is needed for residents in compacted areas living in multi-party buildings, a speedy build-up at public charging infrastructure. The use of funding should therefore be oriented to create an additional, publicly accessible charging infrastructure offer for all populations to avoid a bottleneck bottleneck availability and vehicle record.”- Andreas Kuhlmann, Chairman Dena Management

“The expected need shows that the construction of the private and public charging infrastructure has to take place very quickly”, admonishes EnBW sales leader Timo Sillober. As early as 2022, there is regional with bottlenecks in publicly accessible charging stations. In particular, the expansion of fast load infrastructure in urban space is important. As an operator of the largest rapid store network in Germany, ENBW therefore promotes its commitment in this area – not only when expanding the Germany-wide rapid store network on remote connections.

From 2030, the private loading infrastructure potential could also be exhausted to cover the needs of all electrified vehicles. So that they – as wanted by the Federal Government – can be on the road in a great style on the road, the charging options must be made quickly. Especially for potential e-vehicle owners in multi-party buildings or in residential areas without parking space, with rented parking space or parking space in a homeowner communities, the establishment of a sufficient, publicly accessible charging infrastructure will remain an essential decision criterion.

The present study gives an overview of theoretically, the German building balance has the potential to cover the charging infrastructure needs of seven to ten million electric vehicles by 2030 when 85 percent of all charging operations would take place by private charging points. Derived from this needs and measures for development. Although across Germany consists of 2030 the theoretical potential to cover the electricity requirements of all electric cars via the private loading infrastructure offer. In all private charging infrastructure development scenarios, a parallel or comprehensive expansion of the publicly accessible charging infrastructure but also urgently needed to impede the market growth of electric cars.

Due to the regionally different purchasing power and housing distribution, there will be a regional and time-differentiated market prevention of vehicles within Germany and thus need for publicly accessible charging infrastructure. The study therefore recommends the establishment of a basic network at charging points in densely populated residential areas (urban space), a stronger integration of electric car new reliefs with funding and the dismantling of legal obstacles to create private charging points in multi-family houses and pitches of large residential buildings.

  1. Loading – but where?
    My employer has a diesel preference.
    My landlord says – your problem, no electricity in the garage.
    There are no public pillars here in the country.
    The supermarkets have nothing too.
    Only the euronics electric shop, which has wondered me … until I have read that the Chinese manufacturer byton sells its e-cars via euronics dealer.
    And already ..

  2. It lacks especially electric vehicles. It will take some time until VW can deliver sufficient BEV from the small car to the middle class. For most other providers, it takes longer.

  3. That’s the way it is with some people ..

    You will not explain to someone to explain that it’s stupid what he does if his job or even his life – does not depend on it.

    I preach for years already stop with this blind actionism.
    It was charged “en dimension” with ridiculous charging power.
    Each electric mobile station only drives this if it is a foreign exchange in an emergency or locally if you have a lot of time.

    With us in the village there is a charging column, because my battery is empty when I only go to my mobile phone label to load my mobile phone in the car XD
    Everything unfortunately underdimensioned ….

    BA-Wu makes it like nationwide charging columns regulation goes

  4. Maybe we still get public funding from Jolt Energy and can realize our project! But we are also happy about every other private investor.
