Simplifying the Charge: Offers and Support Needed

Charge up at home, the exception, not the norm

With only 7% of underground garages equipped with wall boxes, and an increasing trend towards using green energy, it's clear that we still have a way to go to make charging at home more accessible for electric car owners.

Electric vehicles are becoming more popular, but the infrastructure to support them is lagging behind. According to the recent ADAC survey, 82% of properties still lack charging facilities. 

Although the use of green energy is increasing, there's still a lot of work to be done to make electric charging accessible to everyone.

Plans are in motion to expand charging infrastructure, but it's not happening quickly enough. To speed up the process, simple offers and government support are needed. The new legal situation has not yet had much impact on the charging infrastructure, but it's a step in the right direction.

We're still far from the ideal scenario where electric car owners can charge their vehicles anywhere, anytime. But with an increased focus on sustainability and the rise of green energy, there's hope that charging facilities will become more widespread in the near future. 

Electric car owners can hope for the best

As the demand for electric vehicles continues to grow, so too does the need for charging infrastructure. With the goal of having 15 million electric cars on German roads by 2030, it's crucial that charging options be made available not only at public charging stations or the workplace but also at the homes of drivers. To put this in numbers, we will need 1 million public chargers and 10 million chargers in semi-private environments.

Making the transition to electric vehicles should be as easy as possible, including providing simple charging solutions. To reach the target of 15 million electric cars by 2030, HeyCharge offers and supports you to make it a reality. We collaborate with many other partners in this industry to work together and to join forces and our solutions that make electric charging accessible to everyone.
