Electricity industry wants to build fewer charging stations-fewer

The Federal Association of Energy and Water Management (BDEW) defends itself against a rigid goal in the expansion of the loading infrastructure. This reports “mirror.en “citing the editorial network Germany. “There is a danger that we create an oversupply and many charging columns simply not be used,” BDEW’s main manager Kerstin Andreae is quoted. As a result, competition between the providers would be missing. But this is necessary to come to the best prices and best service.

Declared goal of the new government from SPD, Greens and FDP are 15 million fully electric cars on German streets by 2030. In order to facilitate the switch to E-cars, one million publicly accessible charging points should be available until this time. The focus should be on fast load columns.

Andreae criticized this fixed specification. “Nobody knows exactly how the mobility looks like in 2030,” she said to the RND. But depends crucially which charging infrastructure is needed at all. For example, a CITYMA or a driving ban for combiers in domestic cities could greatly influence development. Accordingly, the expansion goal for charging infrastructure can only be a dynamic goal.

As it is in mirror.De is called Andreae from 2002 to 2019 for the Greens in the Bundestag and then moved to the energy biblies. Member companies of the BDEW such as Innogy, Eon or EnBW are among the largest operators of charging columns and invest heavily in the expansion – hoping for a profitable business. Sometimes political specifications. So the industry should clear the tariff jungle, enable payment with credit cards and increase the number of columns massively.

As far as the report goes on, the traffic light coalition wants to expand the range of charging points with taxes – even without waiting for sufficient demand, with which these facilities are even economically operational. In the first few days of his term in office, Federal Transport Minister Volker Wissing (FDP) had the state-owned Autobahn GmbH tender for a major order for charging stations in unattended parking lots. The German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) has also been demanding more speed in the expansion of the network for some time. President Hildegard Muller speaks of around 2000 new public charging points per week. Currently there are just 300.

  1. If I look at the approval hick-hack at the Tesla factory in Grunheide, one could be clever in Germany for once, or at least learn from mistakes.
    You could plan ahead and lay out a grid over the country – sound out potential charging point locations and prepare them for approval in such a way that the approval process does not unnecessarily delay construction.
    Again, not the chip deficiency or other scapegoat is the problem – the problem is our completely obsolete, bloated, inefficient, non-digitized authority with its self-made bureaucratic shackles.

    Perhaps we should therefore first reduce bureaucracy and only then set up charging stations !

    That would be a sensible request for Ms. Muller and her VDA – but that’s probably too uncomfortable, involves real work and doesn’t attract much media attention – what a pity.

  2. If, starting in 2025, numerous cities and municipalities set a fixed date for the lockout of combustion engines every week, the combustion engine will die by the end of this decade.
    Instead of flooding this country with masses of fast chargers everywhere, an expansion of charging overnight at the street lamp would be much more needs-based.
    For this to happen, inductive charging while driving must already have started by the end of this decade.

  3. “There is a danger that we create an oversupply and many charging columns simply not be used,” BDEW’s main manager Kerstin Andreae is quoted. As a result, there would be no competition between providers. But this is necessary in order to get the best prices and the best service.

    Especially with many providers there is competition and therefore low prices and good service.

    Of course, not all charging stations will be able to survive, it’s like the many “mom and pop shops” that had to admit defeat to the supermarkets or the many small retailers, the large retailers or the online mail order business had to give way because it no longer paid off has.

    The market economy will also regulate this market, so that in the future e-car drivers will find enough charging stations with good service and low prices – this is also the case with petrol and diesel.

    In the beginning, there is a larger number of charging stations so that all current and future motorists will find plenty of charging options and buy the E cars. Later, it will adapt to the needs so that both operators and how customers are satisfied.

  4. “Declared goal of the new government from SPD, Greens and FDP are 15 million fully electric cars on German streets by the year 2030. In order to facilitate the switch to E-cars, one million publicly accessible charging points should be available until this time. The focus should be on fast load columns “.
    I have no idea about matter. But my first thought when I first read these numbers months ago was: Here something is wrong. Increasingly many charging columns will be HPC pillars, so many of the above 15 million cars at most 45 minutes of stream. The 11 kW, loader ‘hang of course a few hours on the strip. But: Look at the driving profile of Otto Normalo, how often in the week has to recharge his battery? We zoe our city flea one to twice. We have 14.500 petrol stations in Germany, the 57.000.000 car with fuel supply – s.O. Something is wrong here.
    Maybe it would be a good idea to catch the car sleeve on the mouth. The Zoe can be with 22 kW AC!! load, with the Juice Booster with appropriate power outlet also at home. All (?) Other manufacturers work with ridiculous 11 kW, audi (‘projection through technology’) has the impudence to offer its base – Q4 e-tron with 7.5 kW charging power.
    Something is wrong here.
    Where are my mind mistakes? You have to give it, otherwise you would not plan to load 1 million charging points.

  5. I see such messages very relaxed. Tesla wants to triple its charging columns in the next two years and open for foreign brands. If German companies do not want to prepare for decades of profit, it’s just Tesla.
    That’s the world’s largest manufacturer of charging columns anyway ..
