European Union has passed new law to mandate high-power EV recharging stations installed every 38 miles (60km) along the EU’s main roads by 2025.
From 2025 onward, the new regulation requires fast charging stations offering at least 150kW of power to be installed every 60km (37miles)
These will be installed along the EU’s Trans-European Transport Network, or (TEN-T) system of highways, the bloc’s main transport corridor.
High-speed charging for electric trucks is also covered, with the regulations demanding points with a minimum output of 350kW
The new rules, called the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR), will insist the EV chargers for cars and vans can supply at least 150kW.
Also, should have a contactless payment option and not have the driver first register with any provider.
The EU also wants providers to offer customers clear access to information like charging process and availability
The legislation is said to be part of the EU's 'Fit For 55' program, which aims to reduce greenhouse gases by 55% by 2030.
