With the EU climate package, the pressure grows to expand the network for E-charging columns. Especially energy companies invest in the still young market and are increasingly looking for locations.
More than 4000 charging points, for example, is the market leader EnBW – and thus more than any other in the country, reports the “Handelsblatt”, citing the charging column register of the Federal Association of Energy and Water Management (BDEW). Accordingly, around 2400 providers rely on the growing market and with their charging stations electricity for the now around a million e-cars and plug-in hybrids offer. More than 40.000 charging points counts the association.
Although this is far less than one million, which the federal government has set itself the goal of the Federal Government by 2030 to supply ten million e-mobile, it means. In view of the ambitious climate objectives of the EU Commission, after which emissions of new vehicles must be zero from 2035, it may even be 14 to 15 million. But with fast charging stations, the need could even sink.
“In view of the now available fast load capacities, we will need far less than the one million charging columns undertaken by the Federal Government,” quotes the “Handelsblatt” the head of Eon’s e-mobility division, Mathias Woecher. The reason is the loading capacities per pillar, which would be far higher with up to 300 kilowatts than the values forecasted with 50 kilowatts.
The focus is currently shifting significantly towards quick loading hubs with multiple charging points, which also enable higher performance, is therefore also stated in the association of community companies (VKU). Its members, the municipal utilities, would put more than half of the charging points in public space.
Especially the energy suppliers invest in the still young market. In the BDEW list follow at the second place Allego, a subsidiary of the Dutch network operator Alliander, after which the EON subsidiary Innogy and regional suppliers such as EWE, the Stadtwerke Munich or the electricity network Hamburg GmbH come.
But the order is only conditionally meaningful according to “Handelsblatt”. So EON is the true number one: supplemented by the activities of its regional suppliers, the company counts 5000 charging points. Oil-Multi Shell is only led with his daughter Oil with 20 charging points, but do far more charging columns – for example by purchases such as New Motion or by the cooperation with ionity, the joint venture of BMW, Daimler, Ford and VW. “Currently we offer around 140 charging points to 68 shell stations,” a shell spokeswoman is quoted. By 2030 it should be 3000 fast load points to 1000 gas stations.
Market leader EnBW maintains the largest rapid store network in accordance with its own experiences with around 600 locations. It should be 2500 by 2025. These were more locations than the mineral oil companies would have. In the face of tight surfaces EnBW cooperates with the trade. So the Group builds on 50 locations of the drug store chain DM fast loader. For a total of 1000 locations, feasibility studies were commissioned.
Parking of trade are valuable for every charging column operator, it says. Companies such as IKEA already offer charging options at every location. It is not only the task of politics, but also the company, explained a spokeswoman the commitment. Loading the customers could free.
The mineral oil company BP wants to be with Aral’s own provider for ultra-fast shop. By the end of the year, 500 quick loading points should be set up to more than 120 Aral gas stations. create. Currently there are 136 charging points to 32 stations. Also 2022 should continue to expand. To do this, BP cooperates with Volkswagen. The goal: Europe-wide charging columns to 4000 BP and Aral petrol stations, most in Germany and the United Kingdom.
The Federal Cartel Office is constantly monitoring the development and has announced an investigation of the market. Finally, it is not easy to enter corporations such as Shell or BP. Depending on the location, the decision to build up to completion on average one year. Most of the reported charging columns are also owned by regional electricity suppliers or municipalities as well as communities and cities – and less of private companies. So the charging column register is currently 300 car dealerships as well as 115 hotels and above all a lot of providers with only one or two charging points.
After the energy sectors would have held back for years, the chances of making money to make money with a charging column, BDEW’s main manager Kerstin Andreae is quoted. In the area, however, the company still does not expect, “said EONS e-mobility boss. The willingness of the customers to pay more on a charging column than on the domestic wallbox, must still be increased.
The ecostromantic beam spot complains in the face of the activities of the energy suppliers missing competition. “Most of the time it is the regional electricity suppliers who secure the monopoly of the charging infrastructure,” Chefjurist Markus Adam is quoted. The electricity suppliers benefited from the synergy effects from cooperation with the network operators – usually subsidiaries or sister companies in the same group.
