Parking next to an e-charging point

The last time it was 1694. This is the result of a new survey (as of 23 February 2021) presented by the German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDWE) on Friday (9 April 2021). This corresponds to a supply of 1.9 stations per square kilometre. Since December 2019, 720 charging points have been added in the capital. Nationwide, e-cars can currently be charged at around 40 000 publicly accessible points, which is around 24 000 more than in December 2019.
BDEW is satisfied with the nationwide development, but also criticises politics. "Operators need planning security for the massive expansion of the charging infrastructure. Constant new requirements for technical but unnecessary retrofits - as currently discussed in the charging station ordinance - make the operation of charging stations uneconomical," said Kerstin Andreae, Chairwoman of the BDEW Executive Board. Among other things, the association demands a faster and less bureaucratic provision of space for new charging station locations. The BDEW list is based primarily on reports from energy companies, car park operators, supermarkets and hotels. It does not list any purely private charging options.
