German Chancellor Wants 1 Million Charging Stations by 2030

In a video broadcasted on Sunday, Chancellor Angela Merkel said that she wants Germany to have 1 million charging stations by 2030.

Ahead of her meeting with the car industry executives on Monday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel made an announcement to help the sale and mass adoption of low-emission battery-powered vehicles.

In the video broadcasted on Sunday, Merkel said that she wants Germany to have 1 million charging stations by 2030.

For this purpose, we want to create a million charging points by the year 2030 and the industry will have to participate in this effort, that is what we will be talking about,” said the German Chancellor.

She added that by adding more charging points for EVs would help consumers make the switch from an internal combustion engine to low-emission battery-powered vehicles.

Meanwhile, Stephan Weil, the Minister-President of Lower Saxony said he “wanted to see commitments for 100,000 public charging points in place by 2021” reports Reuters.
