As of March 2020, Germany had 27,730 charging stations, according to BDEW, the country’s energy-industry association. To achieve mass EV adoption, the country will need at least 70,000 charging stations, including 7,000 DC fast-charging stations, according to the association.
While mandating electric-car charging at gas stations is an admirable target, a number of charging-network executives in the United States have said that gas stations aren’t a good model for charging stations.
That hasn’t stopped BP and others from adding charging stations at some gas stations. At least one station decided to drop gas altogether and go all-in on charging and EV service.
In Britain, charging stations outnumber gas stations as of last year. In the U.S. (and we would assume Germany), there’s progress to be made.
