Development of publicly available charging infrastructure as a guarantee of universal electric mobilization



In this article, we present two specific cases that were initiated by the governments of individual provinces and cities in China. It is worth considering that various regions of China are making tremendous efforts to accelerate the construction of infrastructure for charging electric vehicles. And here it is important to note # the role of the state, regional authorities and municipalities, which themselves legislate the norms and rules according to which the infrastructure for charging stations will be developed in order to stimulate the transition of local residents to clean modes of transport.

Guizhou province in southwestern China recently announced a three-year plan to build infrastructure for charging electric vehicles, according to which

Thus, by 2023, this province will have a total of 38,000 operating charging stations for electric vehicles with a total charging capacity of 1.6 million kilowatts (on average, more than 40 kW per charging station).

Also, the provincial administration approved the acquisition and installation of

To implement the plan, # parking spaces in service areas on highways will be used, especially for the construction of fast charging stations. This year, priority will be given to the construction of charging stations in 20 selected service areas on the highways.

The provincial government and state-owned companies will also support the construction of charging stations in 13 other roadside service areas on highways in 2022 and at 10 locations along the highways in 2023.

In large # shopping centers, supermarkets and transport hubs in Guizhou province, the share of parking spaces for charging electric vehicles, according to the program, will be at least 20 percent of the total number of parking spaces by 2023.

The province also plans to actively promote the construction of charging infrastructure (mostly slow charges) in existing residential areas.

This # practice of developing and, most importantly, implementing such ambitious development programs already exists in a number of provinces and cities. An example is the city of Luoyang, with a population of more than 6 million people, in Henan province in central China, where in June of this year the local authorities issued a decree according to which the developer will not be issued a certificate / permission to move in if 100% of the parking spaces are not will be prepared to install the charger. Also, the city authorities are developing a plan for the optimal installation of charging stations in old residential areas.

Summarizing the data of the Chinese press and observing the # trend on a global scale, one thing is clear: most countries, including Russia, will gradually be forced to move towards the systematic creation of a wide charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, starting from parking spaces for charging and ending with the installation of powerful fast and ultra-fast stations. charging along highways, in cities and places of high traffic. And # China, attracting large state resources, including provincial administrations and # government agencies, once again sets an example to the whole world in how to move towards the creation of public, developed and promising networks of charging stations for green transport.
