China: Electric car charging sites start to spring up

THE government has started building charging stations along major expressways in Shanghai and neighboring provinces to encourage the use of pollution-free electric vehicles.

The lack of a more complete battery-charging network for the public is a big barrier hampering development of electric cars and buses, according to the transport authorities.

The local government said it’s planned that by end of 2015, 11 battery charging stations will be completed and put into service on six major provincial expressways in Shanghai and neighboring Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces.

The city’s traffic authorities said two facilities have been completed along the local section of the Shanghai-Kunming G60 Expressway and are ready for trial operation after connection to the national power grid.
