Recently, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) released a report on the density of charging piles. In the road network of most EU countries, the number of charging piles is obviously insufficient, and most of them do not support fast charging.
A week before the European Parliament voted on the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR), the European Automobile Manufacturers Association reminded the makers of these two problems, which may hinder the market's acceptance of electric vehicles.
The data shows that there are 6 European countries with less than 1 charging pile per 100 km, 17 countries with less than 5 charging piles per 100 km, and only 5 countries with more than 10 charging piles per 100 km.
There is a huge difference between the countries with the largest number of charging piles per 100 km and those with the smallest number of charging piles. In the Netherlands, there is a charging pile every 1.5km of road, while Poland has an area 8 times larger than the Netherlands, but there is only one charging pile every 150km.
Charging speed is also a major problem in Europe. Only one seventh of charging piles in Europe belong to fast charging, and the power of other charging piles is below 22kW.
Many European countries have announced the time of banning the sale of fuel vehicles. The earliest countries will ban the sale of fuel vehicles from 2025. In September this year, the sales of electric vehicles in the 13 European countries totaled 224900, up 9.9% year on year, of which the sales of eight countries achieved year-on-year growth. The sales of electric vehicles in EU countries will increase significantly, but according to the research of ACEA European Automobile Manufacturers Association, up to 6.8 million public charging stations will need to be built until 2030 to meet their needs.
At present, the average mileage of pure trams is 326 km, which is sufficient for daily commuting or short distance travel. However, to achieve cross-border travel in Europe, the current charging pile ratio is far from enough, and Europe needs to improve its charging infrastructure.
According to the report jointly released by Ernst&Young and the European Electric Power Industry Alliance (Eurelectric), the number of electric vehicles driving on the roads in Europe may reach 130 million by 2035. Therefore, the European region needs to formulate a good policy response plan to deal with the charging pressure caused by the surge in the number of electric vehicles.
The director of the European Automobile Manufacturers Association mentioned in the report: "If we want to persuade citizens across Europe to switch to electric vehicles in the next decade, charging these vehicles should be as easy as today's refueling. People should not travel for miles to find a charging pile, nor should they wait for a long time to charge their vehicles."
