China Charges Ahead for Green Development

A whopping 340,000 charging piles for new energy vehicles (NEVs) have been installed in south China’s Guangdong Province, reflecting the country’s commitment to boosting green development.

The rapidly increasing charging piles in Guangdong, one of China’s economic hubs, have not only met the needs of drivers but also laid a solid foundation for the infrastructure construction of the NEV industry.

In the provincial capital Guangzhou, a charging pile could be installed in a private parking space within seven days, which is almost as fast as the delivery of new automobiles.

“We have launched a service that allows customers to apply for the installation of charging piles the moment they order a new car,” said an official with the power supply department of Guangzhou’s Nansha District, adding that the delivery of vehicles and the installation of charging piles could be completed simultaneously.

As of this September, Guangdong had built China’s largest electric vehicle charging network, including 345,126 public charging piles and 19,116 charging stations, according to the China Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Promotion Alliance (EVCIPA).

The cumulative number of charging infrastructure facilities nationwide reached about 4.49 million, up 101.9 percent year on year.
