The ramp-up of e-vehicles necessary for climate protection depends on the public charging infrastructure!

Situation of public fast-charging infrastructure:
Within the framework of the Climate Protection Plan 2050, Germany must reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector by 40-42% (compared to 1990) by 2030. The conversion of transport to battery electric vehicles or mobility is one of the instruments to achieve this goal. Currently, there are less than 2,000 HPC charging points in Germany (>150 kWh, charging time 30min), while there are more than 14,000 filling stations for “combustion vehicles” (multiple pumps, charging time <10min). The study “Charging infrastructure after 2025/2030: Scenarios for market ramp-up” indicates a need for 440,000 to 843,000 public charging points in 2030. Two billion euros are available to support the development and operation of a needs-based fast charging network by 2030.

Tender for the German network:
The Fast Charging Act created the legal framework for tendering for the construction and operation of HPC charging infrastructure in public/semi-public areas for medium and long-distance traffic. The current tender relates solely to the construction and operation in urban, suburban and rural areas. The tender for sites along the federal motorways will be issued separately. Part of the tender are 900 search areas for fast charging locations (with a radius of 2km each) divided into six regions and a total of 23 lots (determined by the StandortTOOL of the National Charging Infrastructure Control Centre)
