SMM: on Sept. 4, Zhejiang Development and Reform Commission and Zhejiang Energy Bureau issued the 2019 White Paper on the Development of Electric vehicle charging Infrastructure in Zhejiang Province (referred to as the White Paper). Data show that by the end of 2019, the number of electric vehicles in Zhejiang Province exceeded 310000, accounting for about 10 percent of the country, an increase of 68.8 percent over the same period last year.

In addition to financial subsidies and departmental documents to encourage such achievements in the promotion of new energy vehicles, infrastructure construction also plays a vital role. According to the data released by the White Paper, by the end of 2019, about 33000 public charging piles had been built in Zhejiang Province, accounting for about 6.4 per cent of the country's total. Specifically, by the end of 2019, 2308 centralized charging stations and 33188 charging piles had been built in Zhejiang. Among them, there are 427 special charging stations for public transport, 1725 urban public charging stations, 156intercity fast charging stations on expressways, and about 191000 public and private charging piles. In addition, 438 comprehensive energy supply service stations have been built in Zhejiang Province, of which 241 have the charging function of electric vehicles.

In terms of the number of public and private charging piles and electric vehicles in Zhejiang Province, the vehicle-to-pile ratio is 1.6. Compared with the national average of one charging pile for every three cars, the charging environment in Zhejiang Province is relatively friendly. In terms of the operation of charging facilities, according to the White Paper, the charging capacity of Zhejiang charging facilities was 780 million kilowatt hours in 2019, an increase of 99.21 percent over the same period last year, accounting for 11.2 percent of the national charging capacity.

Editor's comments:

Since 2009, the state has been encouraging the development of new energy vehicles, and provinces across the country have spared no effort to support the industry. By the end of 2019, the number of new energy vehicles in the country has reached 3.81 million, accounting for 1.5% of the total number of vehicles, and the market scale is not large. But in terms of the current development trend, on the one hand, countries all over the world are encouraging the development of fuel-efficient vehicles. In order to reduce air pollution and low carbon emissions, Norway first proposed to restrict the sale of fuel vehicles after six years, while countries such as Britain and France announced a ban on the sale of fuel vehicles 10 years later; on the other hand, the revolution of car electrification transformation has arrived, who can seize the first opportunity in the new runway, there will be greater opportunities and space for development in the future.

Although China has always encouraged the development of new energy vehicles, it has not proposed the timing of banning the sale of fuel vehicles as aggressively as European countries, but the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has launched a study on a timetable to stop the production and sale of traditional energy vehicles. Some people in the industry believe that China may start in 2035.
