The EU will have fast charging stations on major roads in Europe by 2025

【Phoneauto News】In order to address climate change, the European Union has passed a new law aimed at significantly improving the charging convenience of electric vehicles on major transportation routes in Europe. This new law requires the construction of a fast charging station every 60 kilometers (37 miles) on major transportation routes in Europe, providing at least 150 kilowatts of charging power for cars and trucks. These charging stations must also support contactless payment without the need for drivers to register with a service provider in advance.

The European Union also hopes that service providers can provide clear information on charging prices and availability to drivers, avoiding surprises when they arrive at charging stations. In addition, it is required to construct a heavy-duty charging station with 350 kilowatts of charging power every 60 kilometers on the core Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) for trucks, and one such charging station every 100 kilometers on other major TEN-T roads. These goals are to be achieved by 2025 and achieve full coverage by 2030.

This new law also provides support for hydrogen-powered vehicles, ensuring that both cars and heavy-duty trucks can find a hydrogen refueling station every 200 kilometers (124 miles). This law is part of the European Union’s “Fit for 55” plan, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 and covers multiple sectors. For example, airports must provide electricity for all jet bridges by 2025 and for all remote parking positions by 2030, while ports used by large passenger and container ships must provide shore charging facilities by 2030.
