ask for one million charging points by 2024 in the EU

It doesn’t happen very often, but lobbyists representing vehicle manufacturers and environmentalism – and also those representing consumers – have agreed to launch a petition to Brussels: the deployment of a million of charging points for electric cars in 2024.

And by 2029 the goal is even more ambitious.

38,000 points for Spain

In a letter signed by the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), Transport & Environment (T&E) and the European Consumer Organization, the EU climate, transport, industry and energy commissioners have been asked to set more ambitious targets for him deployment of charging points for electric cars in the European bloc.

In this way, they demand one million public charging points throughout the block in 2024, and for 2029 they ask for three million, plus 1,000 hydrogen.

According to 2019 data from, globally there are around 434 hydrogen, with Asia and Europe (especially Germany and France) leading the way in development.

The extensive letter also puts on the table the fact that there are more and more electric vehicles on the roads but the infrastructure – especially the public one – remains stagnant:

“European automakers are driving the transition to electric mobility and are literally outpacing each other in launching new electric vehicles. But the success of this huge effort is seriously threatened by the delay in installing the infrastructure of loading into the EU “said ACEA President and BMW CEO Oliver Zipse.

Taking into account the market share of electric vehicles in each country, access to private charging, the total number of passenger vehicles sold or the distance traveled per year by users, the distribution of the charging stations would be as follows way:


As we can see, by 2024 the countries with the most number of stations would be Germany, France and the Netherlands, while Spain would be left with less than 38,000; 214,000 by 2029.

By then, the undisputed king according to this plan would be Germany, with more than a million. Currently in Spain there are 7,879 public charging points, according to ANFAC.

Lobbyists have also called on the European Commission to propose replacing the directive with a regulation, as it would help harmonize recharging standards, payment methods for consumers, tariff transparency, or infrastructure maintenance.

“If we are serious about global warming, we must go electric quickly. To accelerate the transition, we need ubiquitous and easy charging not just in Norway and the Netherlands, but across Europe.”, said T&E CEO William Todts.
