The expansion of the charging infrastructure for charging battery-powered vehicles is one of the key factors for the successful establishment of electric mobility in Germany. A nationwide, demand-oriented charging infrastructure strengthens user confidence in electric mobility, as it reduces fears of range limitations on the one hand, and shortens charging processes on the other hand, allowing vehicles to continue journeys quickly. Consequently, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) promotes the corresponding development via the so-called Charging Infrastructure funding guideline.
For users, there are two main requirements: normal charging (AC) for regularly scheduled charging processes and fast charging (DC) for intermediate use, which makes it possible to continue the journey quickly when travelling longer distances. In particular, support will be provided for the establishment of a nationwide network of fast charging infrastructure so that the user of an electric vehicle can recharge quickly and easily anywhere in Germany. In addition, the further development of publicly accessible normal charging infrastructure will also be promoted in order to satisfy user needs depending on driving and parking behaviour, e.g. for the night charging of residents of apartment buildings without a garage, for car sharing, for recharging at the supermarket, restaurant or when going to the cinema.
Within the scope of the first call for proposals, a total of 808 applications with around 7,000 normal (charging capacity up to 22 kW) and 1,600 fast charging points (charging capacity greater than 22 kW) will be funded. The interactive map shows the locations of the charging stations and allows differentiation according to charging performance. By zooming in, the exact mapping of locations is possible.
Further information on applicants and the progress of the second call for funding can be found on the BMVI website. Municipalities, cities and private companies are eligible to apply. After final processing of the second call for proposals, the corresponding projects will also be integrated into the map.
