    Sweden: Government's EV charging ambitions could be slowed down

    November 11, 2022 - M-Brain Nordic News


      The Swedish government has announced billion investments in EV charging infrastructure, but the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) states that such expansion is inhibited by electricity grid capacity issues and poor profitability. The government wants to spend SEK 1bn (EUR 91.67mn USD 91.47mn) in support to public EV charging points, but the Administration's efforts to cover spots where such charging points are uncommon have only led to about one-third of identified spots receiving quick chargers. Hanna Eklöf at the Administration said that this stems from capacity issues, long delivery times, and high operational costs in certain areas. She also states that the capacity issues will likely remain in the coming years. To alleviate this, Eklöf is in favour of a setup that allows for lower operational costs, but at the same time, Anders Lewald at the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten) says that you cannot forget about charging at home. He says that non-public spots are more prioritised right now, but that it remains to be seen whether the government's proposal will be enough.
