"Guidelines For Installation Of 5,000,000 Charging Points In China By 2020" (Inside EVs)
The People’s Republic of China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) really is serious about this.
I understand that China makes policy guidelines every 5 years. And one of their main concerns is to do something about the extremely bad air quality in Chinese cities.
It looks like they now seriously want to do something about that. And that always is the first step.
“5,000,000 charging spots by 2020” really is a substantial number. But even if they need twice as much time (ten years instead of five years) to realise these 5,000,000 charging spots, that would be great as well, I think.
5million for 1.3 billion people isn't that much unless they are all (more or less) fast chargers. That's just one / 260 people. It's good that they are planning/building those but I think they need more than that pretty soon.
China moves quickly and the US better get moving like California or risk economic crisis. Fossil fuels will continue to be a bad choice.
Cool. I have no problem with a government that governs. Something needs to be done? Do something.
