Where there is still recovery in the charging infrastructure for electric cars-cars

The inadequate charging infrastructure still in some points is considered to decide on many potential e-auto buyers as a reason for a plug car. Although there are already 27.000 publicly accessible charging points, such as the Federal Association of Emobility (BEM), and a “overall pleasing” development of the loading infrastructure in Germany, so Markus Emmert from BEM. “However, in order to be able to talk about a good network, we would need for the current vehicle inventory of CIRCA 270.000 electric cars around 42.000 public charging points.”So just half more than so far constructed.

Especially shopping centers, cinemas or other public places are ideal for electricity tank stations, Volker Blandov is located from TuV SuD. At exposed places like this charging infrastructure much more visible, as for car dealers in commercial areas, which could thus increase the acceptance for electric cars: “The customer does not have to get the safety not only, he must be in practice too, experienced by getting stream then if he needs him, “says Blandow.

Blandow also wishes more charging columns at a very close-looking location: gas stations. “A petrol station wants to sell in the first place gasoline, that’s your business model. But there is already a rethinking there, “says Blandow. He says classic gas stations would be ideal for quick charge. The 20 minutes waiting time for a proper serving of electricity for the electric car are perfect for a coffee or snack for driver and passenger. Aral has already discovered this business model for themselves and tests extremely fast charging columns with up to 320 kW at five pilot locations, which can currently not record electric car. Aral seems to be convinced of the technology: “In our opinion, ultra-fast charging columns are an essential prerequisite for a business model in the field of e-mobility on the gas station,” says Corporate Speaker Detlef Brandenburg.

Loading should be possible after kilowatt hours to transparent prices

Markus Emmert from BEM says that even in the billing and payment systems of public charging columns must be improved: “In principle, the billing should take place after issued kilowatt hours, and the price should be transparent.”This is often not the case despite Eichrecht amendel. Furthermore, at public charging points, the spontaneous adhoc loading is usually the possibility to calculate via the usual payment and credit cards.

It is desirable, as Blandow, also a completely barrier-free access, so that every vehicle can load on each charging column and with any electricity provider. This is not yet possible, except to use roaming providers like plugsurfing, newmotion or get batch. But then the price for the store rises sometimes clearly and unnecessarily, as the BEM criticizes because the service providers cash in a commission for billing at the charging column. And so the costs for a kilowatt-hour autostrom fluctuate between fair 29 and strongly plated 89 cents. After all, it is pleasing that more and more supermarkets, furniture stores and tourism bureau electricity for the electric car on your parking spaces also offer free of charge.

“Every park can be used to load”

In general, when loading electric cars, a general rethinking is needed. An average car is unused for more than 23 hours a day in a parking lot. More than 80 percent of all charging processes are already taking place at home or at work. Here you can start, and promote charging infrastructure in these places how Emmert finds: “The E-car will significantly change our usual handling of the gas station. Vehicles are known to tools, which makes use of electromobility. Each parking process can then be used to load.”

So that the store at home in big cities is easier, where many people live as tenants or owners in apartments, the legislator has launched the Building Electromobility Infrastructure Act (Geig): In the event of renovations or new buildings, empty pipes must be relocated to charging stations Easy to retrofit, and at least one charging point must be built. Even apartment owners should have it easier in the future to install their own wallbox in the underground car park. So far, the Veto handed a single co-owner in a housekeeping to prevent this.

In another annoyance is also improvement in sight: blocks a burner a loading point for an electric car, there was a fine of lapping ten euros until recently – that is less than in most major cities a park ticket costs in a parking garage. Since the StVO amendment, however, 55 euros are due, which could move some burner drivers to rethink. And more and more frequently, police or order services even call the towing service if drivers of electric cars report such violations. Then it becomes even much more expensive for charging column blockers.

  1. An essential point would also be larger parking so to design so that the vehicles are protected from the weather. These include, for example, a strong solar radiation and heavy rain showers. If the area would also be used for energy production, it would be ideal. How can this show, this example shows here from the Swiss Toggenburg:
    https: // point4.Info / Expenditure / Details / News / Parking Supply Solar Current / Point4 Edition Name / Future Economy / Point4 Edition Section / 16666 / Point4 Date / 23-06-2020.HTML
    And if it winds really, the roof is just folded. Saves foundations and uses the know-how of cable cars.

  2. People should just borrow a stream and test neatly. As approved in the article, the vehicles are often and sometimes very long. The life is often enough to recharge the needed electricity with emergency loader, we themselves have the employer even 22kW and then everything is fine. Thus, the quick load columns are only required for the remaining under twenty percent of the required charges, at least for most cars. Whether the petrol stations are meaningful as a charging point, anyone can decide for themselves, I only need that on the highway. If this payment chaos, which only originated because the government has simply made, is made out of the world, then the rich bidding should be gone. It’s good that is finally moving something structured!

  3. With payment card (also contactless) would be good, it does not even have to be per pillar. It would already be enough to put a terminal on several columns, as it is for some gas machines. The card payment is an advantage, but I also understand that it does not expect the individual column yet. The theater with apps and RFID cards is too tedious. And as long as it remains my age until it does not work anymore.

  4. “More than 80 percent of all charging processes are already taking place at home or at work”
    Of course, because the acquisition is actually only worthwhile if you have a charging option at home or at work. So this is not generalizable (keyword: survivorship bias https: // de.Wikipedia.org / wiki / survivorship_bias)

    The answer to the headline would be: almost everywhere on the roadside in the city. There are concepts, Z.B. For the Lanternarker just to tap the lanterns, but currently the E-Mobil is only in question if you have the opportunity to install your own wallbox.

  5. I also believe that the home-loader will be decreased over time, as thereto over 60% of people live in big cities and generally have the fewest in Germany via a house or a private garage. From Jolt Energy we want to set up fast load (up to 320 kW) in cities for the typical lantern parker (up to 320 kW), either as a leaf solution (“off-grid”) or on the net, where this is easily possible. Normal AC loaders are the future nokias of the charging infrastructure. The future is called Smart Ultra-Fast Charging.

  6. Of course our quick loaders can also slow, depending on the e-car. In the future, however, it will clearly go in the direction of fast charge.

  7. When will all electric cars be so easy to load as soon as a Tesla today?
    By using loading cards or smartphone authentication, every loading process takes several 10 seconds longer than necessary today.
    Furthermore, a charging column could deliver electricity for free for a few seconds to bridge the time of authentication in the payment provider.
    Today you have to spend a lot of money for a 800V suitable vehicle.
    If Tesla builds his Roadster 2 and his cybertruck, then such large batteries can only be loaded with 800V technology. Otherwise the big battery does not have an advantage.
