As per a report by Reuters, the number of charging points for electric vehicles in Germany has increased by more than 10 per cent in the past three months to reach 39,538, energy industry association BDEW said. The report added that policymakers in Europe’s biggest economy aim to cut emissions from transport by expanding the use of electric vehicles.

The report said that the BDEW said that the expansion of public charging points continues unabated. It added that the government efforts to boost demand for electric vehicles and equipment were showing results.

As per the report, BDEW data showed one in seven of the 3,788 charging points added since December were fast-chargers. This makes up about 10 per cent of the total around the country. BDEW said that the expanding number of charge points would ease public concerns about using electric vehicles, even though 90 per cent of charging was conducted at home or the workplace. It said a national target of 1 million charging points by 2030 might not be achieved but that number might not be necessary if enough fast charging points were included in the rollout.

The report said that Germany launched a 3 billion euro ($3.6 billion) scheme in November to extend consumer rebates for buying electric vehicles and wallbox chargers. It also works on supporting programmes for scrapping old vehicles and investing in innovation. BDEW said the number of applications for subsidies to install private wallboxes had risen to 300,000.
