Traffic light coalition announces more pace when expanding the loading infrastructure-announces

With Stand in early November 2021, the Federal Network Agency for Germany 41.993 normal and 7.214 fast load points that are publicly accessible. This corresponds to about 1.7 charging points per 1.000 inhabitants. However, the degree of expansion is very different in the federal territory. Most charging points are available to the residents of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (3.1 per 1.000 inhabitants), followed by Berlin and the Saarland (2.5 each). The levers form Baden-Wurttemberg (1.4), Bavaria (1.3) and Hamburg (1.3). For comparison: Austrian e-car driver must be with 9.500 public charging points Find the outgoing (0.9 charging points per 1.000 inhabitants), although the stock of pure E cars in Austria with 1.4% is well above that in Germany (0.63%).

Neo Transport Minister Volker Wissing (FDP) has now announced more pace when expanding the loading infrastructure. In particular, the expansion of fast load columns on highways is in focus. For him is “completely clear that we can not reach our climate goals with fossil internal combustion engines”. Alternative, climate-neutral mobility do not pass a way over, even if the offers would have to be varied and different to take account of all different needs. It is the task of politics to “make everyone an offer that is affordable,” how Wissing emphasizes.

Attracting the pace is also urgent necessary. The planned expansion lags well as the Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA). The number of newly authorized electric cars gets faster than the expansion of the charging infrastructure. There are currently around 250 public charging points per week. In order to achieve the target of the traffic light coalition of one million public charging points, however, around 2.000 charging points are built.

If one believes the many reports in social forums, on the other hand, not only the small number of charging points is the problem, but also not functioning or burned by burners. Here, therefore operators and politics are required that the existing infrastructure is actually usable for e-auto drivers. Recently, the loading experience is the focus: with ultramodern loaders such as in Zummarmenhausen, the store will be a welcome stopover, with sufficient fast load columns, roofing and catering possibility. Even the manufacturers themselves jump on the train, Audi recently opened the first “Charging Hub” with Lounge in Nuremberg. Of course exclusive for driver of the nobleman. It will show if we will soon have standards as on airports, where drivers of luxury brands will wait for their charging at Prosecco and appetizers, and the “foot folk” must be satisfied with weatherproof charging columns somewhere in the dark corner of a car owner.

  1. I drive electric car for a year.

    So far, I have never had any problems to find a quick-fading, or that no quick-wire had been free.

    Although I understand that the expansion of the fast-wheeling infrastructure (which is currently growing rapidly) should be driven forward, which is certainly necessary.

    However, forget the AC charging infrastructure. Let’s go fast while eating, hiking or shopping or longer appointments, the car is not even easy at all. Should leaders only “refuel” on quick veins? Where I’m 40 minutes. plump? Or does not make it much more sense to load his car there, where you stay for some time anyway.

    It makes no sense to pinpoint his car to a quick-faster, and then eat to go. I do not feel like 30 minutes. to be out again to break up my car again. Also I do not want to go back in 30 minutes. be on the car.

    Try to find a free AC pillar on an appointment in a city today. Under 20 min. Footpath is hardly something there!

    Dear politics. Please necessarily think of the AC charging infrastructure, which in my opinion belonged much stronger than the fasthead infrastructure.

  2. After my understanding, the “Charging Hub” in Nuremberg is not just for Audi customers. There is an area within the hub, which should only be accessible to Audi customers. Nevertheless, each electric car driver has access to a place in dry and warm. In addition, everyone can access the toilet and the snack machines while at a large screen can view the current boost level of his vehicle. My source is the video of Chris Alias “Car Maniac”: https: // / watch?v = at7yyforrwm
    Understandable that there are more comfort for Audi customers, but pay more for their vehicles. My opinion.

  3. The expansion must take the stock of electric cars. That no utilization is given is in the nature of the matter. And that’s exactly what it has to be necessary to build the financially.

  4. Just on Christmas, Zoe with great battery, EnBW App, Aggertal Ressstatte, A 4, AC charging stations only 1 available by EnBW, has worked but not immediately, loading in Viersen New was already very complicated, either the Zoe, or the Communication The operator, despite service advice from New, rest rest, my Zoe was not recognized, finally at another station it worked right away.

  5. The equipment with quick veins on the highway will be right to me. Much worse is the lack of the main roads, especially at the route tracks, in rural areas (far and wide away from the highway). Surely in a local small town, 3 CCS charging columns = 5 charging points, two even with 350kW, available, but for that is a CA. 15 to 20 minutes drive, once transverse through the city and then again required back – this is considered twice at times of travel traffic. Another CCS column is very cheap, right next to the main road arranged. This belongs to a dealership is well attended and therefore more often occupied or longer. occasionally defective. The four relatively well achievable AC loaders (means for an EGOLF = 7.2kW), however, are hardly useful for passers, although almost always free. In this respect, I already see a significant catch-up on CCS charging columns, but please with a meaningful placement, especially in rural areas.
