ENECHANGE’s EVsmart Updates Regularly on EV Charging Station Installation Status, Providing Insights into Japan’s EV Charging Infrastructure
ENECHANGE Ltd. (hereafter: the Company) is pleased to announce that its EV charging search site, EVsmart, now provides information on the location of charging locations nationwide, as well as the number of charging ports.
The government has set a goal of achieving a 100% share of low-emission vehicles in new passenger car sales by 2035. To accomplish this, the government has announced plans to increase the installation of EV charging ports to 300,000 by 2030. However, the current number of fast charging and Level 2 charging ports combined remains at approximately 30,000. ENECHANGE, along with other charging infrastructure providers, is actively working to increase the installation of EV charging ports by utilizing government subsidies.
The Company is committed to ensuring a convenient and comfortable experience for EV drivers through initiatives such as the EV Charge ENECHANGE app and, since its transfer from Ayudante Co., Ltd. in September 2022, the operation of the EV charging location information site EVsmart and the EVsmart Blog, which provides the latest EV and EV charging information.
In EVsmart’s new section called EV Charging Port Statistics, users can now access information about the nationwide charging location count trends and the trends in the number of charging ports by provider. This content will be regularly updated each month with more features anticipated in the future. By making the status of EV charging infrastructure in Japan accessible with up-to-date figures, we hope to build momentum for the development of public charging infrastructure.
