In mid-December there was a top meeting between the federal government and the energy industry. “Our goal is that soon no one in Germany will say:” I’m not buying an electric car because I don’t know how and where to load it, “said Economics Minister Peter Altmaier (CDU). It was agreed that the energy industry should create guidelines for the operators of charging infrastructure in the coming year. In addition, approval procedures and processes for grid connection are to be accelerated.
