BERLIN, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- By the beginning of December, 50,901 publicly accessible charging points for electric vehicles (EVs) had been registered in Germany, around 11,600 more than in the same month of the previous year, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) said on Wednesday.

Total charging capacity rose to around 1.5 gigawatts. Publicly accessible EV charging points in Germany must comply with the country's technical requirements and operators are required to register their charging infrastructure with the BNetzA.

The number of ultra fast charging stations in Germany with a capacity of at least 150 kilowatts has more than doubled compared to the previous year and reached almost 3,000, according to the BNetzA.

The new German government aims to accelerate the expansion of the EV charging station infrastructure and to have one million publicly accessible charging points in the country by 2030. Enditem
