Spain needs 24,757 electric charging points to reach its goal in 2023

Date: March 2, 2024 Time: 06:15:28

With the view set at the disposal of a ‘hydrogen’ for every 100 kilometers of highway by the year 2030, for the installation of new electric recharging points it seems that its process has stalled. However, it grew 11% in Spain in the first quarter of the year, reaching a total of 20,243 points. However, this figure remains far from the estimated target for the end of this year, in which 45,000 points were expected.

Despite its slow growth, in the first three months the published Anfac manufacturers joined the Spanish network.

As a result of the low rate of electricity use, the gap with the rest of Europe is widening and therefore makes it difficult to meet the fixed emissions reduction targets set by the Government for 2030. 79% of the charging points in operation in Spain na do not reach 22 kilowatts, therefore the minimum waiting times are 3 hours.

Lack of efficient charging points

One drawback of electric cars is that you have to go to a charging point and wait a long time to get a full charge. There are only 801 public charging points in Spain. In addition, they have a power of at least 150 kW, which allows charging times of between 15 and 27 minutes. Likewise, Anfac figures at 6,475 points out of service, because they have not been able to connect to the electricity distribution network or because they are in poor condition or damaged.

With these data, Spain obtains a score of 4.5 points out of 100 in the development of public access charging infrastructure, growing only 0.6 points since the end of 2022, and ranking far behind the Netherlands and Norway, which lead with 62 and 50.4 points, respectively, and the European average -10.6-.

Electric vehicle penetration

On the other hand, despite the fact that there is increasing awareness about pollution and environmental care, the Critified Indicator that Measures Penetration Shows a Similar Reality, With an Average Assessment of 17.4 Points The Case of Spain, only 0.5 more than in the previous quarter.

These figures place the national market very far from the outstanding leader, Norway, which reaches 156.6 points, and 20 points below the European average. In the first quarter, 25,447 electrified passenger cars were registered in Spain, which would mean reaching 100,000 by the end of the year, far from the target of 190,000 set by Anfac.

Electromobility “by snail steps”

Regarding the global electromobility indicator, which assesses both the penetration of electrified vehicles and the installation of public access charging infrastructures, Spain reaches a total of 11 points, only six tenths more than at the end of 2022, with a rate slow and insufficient

“The data recorded in the Anfac electromobility barometer for the first three months of the year once again reveal that the pace is very slow and that Spain lags behind. This slow evolution must be reversed if we want zero-emission mobility in the sector the automotive sector in Spain took off and became a hub for the new electromobility”, assures the general director of Anfac, José López-Tafall.

Spain remains at the bottom of Europe with countries like Italy, the Czech Republic or Hungary, and far from the European average of 23.8 points. By communities, only Madrid (15.6 points), Navarra (13.6), Catalonia (13.2) and the Balearic Islands (12.9) are above the national average.
