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.
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.
Today, the “Charging Infrastructure Conference” (“Ladeinfrastruktur-Konferenz”) of the Federal Ministry of Digital and Transport (BMDV) is taking place in Berlin for the first time. In his capacity as host, Dr Volker Wissing, Federal Minister for Digital and Transport, welcomes the more than 1,300 registered participants at the Berlin TEC Event Campus and online.
The new Pro-Charging online platform has been launched to support and accelerate the development of charging infrastructure in Luxembourg. With Pro-Charging, those offering and those looking for sites for the expansion of charging infrastructure can find each other.
Cities and municipalities in Germany play a key role in the expansion of publicly accessible charging infrastructure. The new “Easy Charging in the Municipality” (“Einfach laden in der Kommune”) guide provides practical assistance in the implementation of charging infrastructure for public roads. In particular, it introduces the topics of awarding contracts, tendering and approval processes. It has now been published as part of the Charging Infrastructure Conference of the Federal Ministry of Digital and Transport (BMDV – Bundesministerium für Digitales und Verkehr).
