COVID 19 halts the growth of EVSE in China

by Mar 30, 2020

From March 2019 to February 2020, the number of public charging points installed per month averaged about 15,000, with a year-on-year growth of 52.8 percent for February 2020. However, in February 2020, only 195 stations were installed, due to COVID-19 bringing the country to a standstill. It will be interesting to see how will the government help the booming EV market in China to revive the EVSE growth. According to PTR almost 150,000 charging stations were added in China in 2019 which was expected to increase in 2020 but due to COVID it will halved to 75,000 charging points. Link to the news:
