A total of around 20.650 public and semi-public charging points are currently listed in the BDEW charging station register. “This would allow well over 400.000 e-cars to charge regularly. That would be twice as many as are currently reported in Germany. We are well positioned here. What must now come into focus is the removal of legal hurdles for the installation of private charging infrastructure: There has been discussion for years about adapting tenancy and condominium law accordingly. Practical suggestions have long been on the table. The Federal Ministry of Justice now has to finally release the brakes and accelerate ”, says Stefan Kapferer, Chairman of the BDEW Management Board.

Comprehensive offers to conveniently integrate electromobility into everyday life have long been available: This will be demonstrated by the BDEW and around 60 energy companies on September 6th and 7th with numerous campaigns throughout Germany. Further information on the Electromobility Action Day, which has the motto "Driving into the Green" is available at www.fahrt-ins -grü
