The municipality of Oslo will not reach the goal of charging stations for electric cars. The charging queues, on the other hand, have decreased after the municipality introduced payment in March.
– “Last year there were a lot of reports that it was impossible to find a charging space. Now we have far fewer complaints,” says Sture Portvik in the City Environment Agency to Dagsavisen.
He says demand has diminished since the municipality introduced charging fees, but acknowledges that in some districts there is a challenge with enough charging stations for electric cars.
The City of Oslo has built 479 fewer charging stations than planned this year. The target was 2,050 by the end of 2019, but the facet is 1,571 new points.
