The EU has approved a groundbreaking law aimed at saturating highways with rapid EV chargers by the end of 2025. This regulation is a significant stride towards enhancing electric vehicle travel throughout Europe while also curbing harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The new law primarily benefits electric car and van owners by vastly expanding the charging infrastructure along major EU highways. Charging stations capable of delivering a minimum of 150kW power are mandated to be installed every 60km along the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) highways. Additionally, core network stations must offer at least 400kW by December 31, 2025, and 600kW by 2027. The regulation also requires simplified payment methods and transparent pricing information. This initiative aligns with the EU's "Fit for 55" strategy, which aims to reduce emissions by 55% by 2030. It's a significant step in the direction of achieving the EU's long-term climate neutrality goal and ensuring easier and more widespread access to EV charging infrastructure. This progressive move is set to revolutionize Europe's electric mobility landscape and will hopefully inspire others to follow suit.
