The theme of electric columns continues to be of great relevance in Italy. The charging infrastructure network for battery-powered cars in our country continues to grow, but this does not mean that the current trend of increasing the number of charging stations is sufficient to support the ever-increasing spread of electric and plug-hybrid vehicles. in. The fact is that in 2021 the charging points for cars on tap increased by 35% compared to the previous year, and 143% compared to the first survey in 2019: a total of 6,700 more columns for a total of 26,024 units.
Il Fatto Quotidiano on newsstands this morning, reporting the data released by Motus-E, compares the development of electric mobility in Italy to a dog chasing its tail, and explains that “We still need to invest in public charging infrastructures and we need to continue to incentivize the purchase of battery-powered vehicles, but if in many cases the lack of one discourages the use of the otherthis is also true in reverse ”. Returning to the electric columns, in any case, the balance of 2021 remains positive, albeit not uniform throughout the national territory: to benefit more from the infrastructural network for plug-in hybrid vehicles and 100% electric at the local level is Northern Italy, where 57% of columns and stations are located, while the Center stops at 23% and the South with the islands at 20%.
As for the highways, on the other hand, the general situation of the charging infrastructures remains well below expectations: there are just 1.2 of the fast or ultra-fast ones every 100 kilometers. In addition to this, the deadlines set by the 2021 Budget Law for the installation of the latest generation recharging points by motorway concessionaires have not been respected: the latter are guilty of never having published even the minimum technical requirements for infrastructures, despite the fact that they should have done so by 1 March last year.
