City to speed up EV sector development

Shanghai will accelerate the development of the electric vehicle industry this year and improve charging facilities to better serve the needs of electric car owners, Shanghai government officials said yesterday.

The city will encourage the use of electric vehicles, add 10,000 public charging poles, 15 charging demonstration stations for taxis and 10 shared charging pole demonstration communities this year.

Proposals related to EV charging have become hot topics in this year’s “two sessions.”

Ma Chi, a member of the 13th Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference Shanghai Committee and researcher at the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, proposed the transformation of existing slow-charging facilities in the city into fast-charging ones as soon as possible, as well as setting up more charging areas for vehicles such as electric buses.

Lin Liping, a member of the 15th Shanghai People’s Congress, suggested offering government subsidies to expedite the construction of charging and parking areas across the city.

Other proposals, including creating unified standards for battery manufacturing and management, and endurance mileage of EVs which means maximum distance an EV can travel on a single charge were also discussed at the sessions.
