Foreseeing 2021: “A Panorama of China’s Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Industry in 2021″

In recent years, under the dual effects of policies and the market, the domestic charging infrastructure has advanced by leaps and bounds, and a good industrial foundation has been formed. By the end of March 2021, there are a total of 850,890 public charging piles nationwide, with a total of 1.788 million charging piles (public + private). In the context of striving to achieve “carbon neutrality”, our country will develop new energy vehicles without delay in the future. The steady increase in the number of new energy vehicles will promote the expansion of the demand for charging piles. It is estimated that by 2060, our country’s new charging piles will be added. The investment will reach 1.815 billion RMB.

AC charging station account for the highest proportion, reflecting the application scenarios of charging station

Electric vehicle charging piles are installed in public buildings (public buildings, shopping malls, public parking lots, etc.) and residential quarter parking lots or charging stations. According to different voltage levels, they provide various types of electric vehicles with power charging equipment.
According to the installation method, electric vehicle charging piles are divided into floor-mounted charging piles and wall-mounted charging piles; according to the installation location, they can be divided into public charging piles and built-in charging piles; public charging piles can be divided into public piles and special piles , Public piles are for social vehicles, and special piles are for special vehicles; according to the number of charging ports, it can be divided into one charging and one multi charging; according to the charging method of charging piles, it is divided into DC charging piles, AC charging piles and AC/DC integration Charging pile.
According to the latest statistics from EVCIPA, according to the charging method, as of the end of March 2021, the number of AC charging piles in our country reached 495,000 units. It accounts for 58.17%; the number of DC charging piles is 355,000 units, accounting for 41.72%; there are 481 AC and DC charging piles, accounting for 0.12%.
According to the installation location, as of the end of March 2021, our country has 937,000 vehicles equipped with charging piles, accounting for 52.41%; public charging piles are 851,000, accounting for 47.59%.

National Policy Guidance and Promotion

The rapid development of domestic charging piles is even more inseparable from the vigorous promotion of relevant policies. Regardless of whether it is for the construction of infrastructure for the majority of consumers or the related work of government agencies, the policies in recent years have covered charging infrastructure construction, power access, charging facility operation, etc., and promote the mobilization of relevant resources of the whole society. The development of charging infrastructure plays a vital role.
