"In Berlin, there are more than 100 projects and approximately 3,000 electric vehicles, making the capital region the largest practice lab for electromobility in Germany. In total, there are about 770 unrestricted publicly accessible charging points in Berlin and Brandenburg. Private charging infrastructure not available to the public is not included here. There's an increase of 30 percent compared to the previous year”, emphasizes Gernot Lobenberg, Director of the Berlin Agency for Electromobility eMO.
A recently published survey by the BDEW Bundesverband der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft e.V. counted 5,836 publicly accessible charging points in Germany at the end of 2015. The results are based on a survey by the BDEW member companies in Germany. Moreover, there are even more charging infrastructure operators in the regions and also in Berlin that have built and operate charging points within project frameworks, which are not included in the BDEW survey. This includes, for example, the Deutsche Bahn and The New Motion.
