Bundestag debates fast-charging law

Date
01 May 2021

The German Parliament is currently debating a draft bill aimed at providing nationwide fast-charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (Fast Charging Act – “Schnellladegesetz, SchnellLG”, in German). After having extended the subsidy for electrically powered vehicles until 2025 at the end of 2020 and the Building Electric Mobility Infrastructure Act (“Gebäude-Elektromobilitätsinfrastruktur-Gesetz, GEIG”) passed at the beginning of March by Parliament, the SchnellLG is yet another electric vehicle initiative started by the Federal Government.

The SchnellLG is intended to be the next step in the implementation of the Federal Government’s Master Plan for Charging Infrastructure (in German) and to enable part of the planned number of 1 million publicly accessible charging points in Germany by 2030.
