Luxembourg currently has 100 electric vehicle charging stations
Luxembourg currently has 100 electric vehicle charging stations. But how do they work?
Under Luxembourg’s e-mobility strategy, the country plans to roll out 800 electric vehicle charging stations around the country by the end of 2020. By the end of 2017, around 100 “Chargy” stations had already been installed and were operational, according to economy minister Etienne Schneider.
Responding to a parliamentary question from Marco Schank and Marcel Oberweis, Schneider explained that customers can charge their vehicles through a subscription available via public transport platform Verkéiersverbond, using the same chip system as the mKaart.
The stations are connected to a central system processing the consumption and data of customers. The team behind Chargy are working with providers of charging stations abroad to ensure that special Chargy cards are compatible outside of the country.
At the same time, they are developing an e-payment option for customers who are not subscribed to the network to access any charging station in Luxembourg.
