In September 2022, an online survey entitled “Charging at home: Charging behaviour of owners of private wallboxes for electric vehicles” will be conducted under the direction of Dr. Christian Hein (Studies and Science Network Charging Infrastructure Manager in the Understanding Team). A total of 200,000 people who have received funding through KfW Programme 440 (charging stations for electric cars – residential buildings) and have set up a private charging facility will be contacted.
This year, the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure will showcase its services with an information stand at the Smart Country Convention at Messe Berlin exhibition grounds. The Smart Country Convention is Germany’s largest congress focusing on the subject of digitalisation in the public sector. The Centre’s main emphasis will be on digital tools and dashboards. In addition, Dr Franziska Lobas-Funck, Team Leader Understanding, will be in attendance as a speaker.
Easy charging at service areas – new study published on setting up network connections for e-truck charging hubs
To enable the increased use of battery-electric trucks in transport nationwide in the near future, the establishment of a new, demand-focused charging network is already needed now. This charging infrastructure and its integration into the electricity grids are the subject of a new study commissioned by the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure.
For improved interlinking of charging infrastructure and power supply: Ministries strengthen cooperation
Dr. Volker Wissing, Federal Minister of Digital and Transport, and Dr. Robert Habeck, Federal Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Protection, today jointly visited the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure.
The German federal government has developed the new ‘Charging infrastructure II masterplan’ as a roadmap for the expansion of charging infrastructure for the government and other expansion actors. Now available, the masterplan draft was prepared by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) and will now be sent to the relevant stakeholders such as federal states, municipalities, associations and companies, in order to discuss the various measures with them as a next step.
