China doubled the number of the country's charging points for electric vehicles (EV) to 5.2 million in 2022 over 2021, the National Energy Administration (NEA) said on Monday

Of the total, private charging points reached 3.4 million, up by more than 1.9 million over 2021, while public charging points increased by 650,000 to 1.8 million, the agency said

More than 3,000 companies invest and operate these EV charging facilities, with 17 of the firms each running more than 10,000 points

Power consumption for EV charging last year totalled 40 billion kilowatt hours, up 85% on the year, NEA said
