This is very interesting, it would double the existing number of chargepoints in Germany. The infrastructure is clearly there, I wonder how quickly they plan to role this out, and with which partner or partners?
The speed of change is dramatic in this sector. Emobilty is already one of our core sectors across Europe. We've placed some outstanding candidates with some of the worlds best companies.
Telekom, a large European telecommunications company headquartered in Germany, confirmed that they are putting in place a massive plan to more than double the current electric car charging infrastructure by converting their distribution boxes. The company is in the process of updating 12,000 distribution boxes in their network in Germany. A spokesperson told the German business newspaper Automobilwoche that they plan to build charging stations out of those distribution boxes – including 500 100-kW fast-charging stations. The rest will be level 2 charge points capable of a charge rate up to 22 kW. With around 10,800 public charge points in Germany at the moment, the plan alone would double the current charging infrastructure in the country.
