This report provides a ranking of the leading providers of EV charging infrastructure by global stations, public and private. Furthermore, we analyze the outlook in China, the EU, the USA and other leading hubs of electrification.
EV (Electric Vehicle) charging infrastructure providers are poised for growth
Triggered by the rapid increase in the number of electric vehicles, the charging network, as a necessary infrastructure for the development of electric vehicles, is about to follow in growth. Relevant national policies in China, the EU and the US have clearly shifted financial subsidies from “replenishment of vehicles” to “replenishment of piles”, and guided local financial subsidies from “replenishment of purchases” to “replenishment of operations”.
By 2025, China plans to deploy more than 2 million publicly accessible charging points; the European Commission 1 million public chargers; and the authorities of California, USA’s largest EV market, plans to install 250,000 public and shared private charging outlets.
China is different from Europe and the United States. Many families in Europe and the United States live in single-family houses, have sufficient parking spaces, and the construction of private piles is relatively convenient. Therefore, the demand for public piles in these regions is weak, and the proportion of private charging points is relatively high. The ratio of NEVs to public charging posts is also high.
The situation is different in China; the high population density of China’s major cities adds to the complexity of installing private charging piles; in addition, the property situation is complex, parking spaces are scarce, and the construction of private piles is lagging. Therefore, the focus in China is on the development of public charging piles.
China’s EV Charging Infrastructure is struggling to keep up with the growing demand for NEVs
China is the world’s largest car market in terms of new car sales with 20.19 million sold in 2020 and the leading market in electric vehicle sales with 1.25 million New Energy Vehicles (NEV) sold in 2020, according to CAAM. Its strong position in the global automotive market is coupled with strong commitment and competitiveness in the digital economy, favourable government policy which supports ICVs and NEVs.
Germany’s draft low for nationwide coverage of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
Germany will launch a Europe-wide tender for the construction and operation of a nationwide fast-charging network at 1000 locations. In addition, most charging points have only been able to charge with normal charging power (of a maximum of 22 kW), because fast charging (with over 100 kW) has not yet been specifically promoted nationwide.
Currently, less than 2% of all charging points have a charging capacity of at least 100 kW. For the successful market ramp-up of e- vehicles, however, a needs-based, nationwide and user-friendly charging station infrastructure (LIS) is required.
