Yegor Mishcheryakov, First Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Economic Development and Investment Activities of the Leningrad Region, took part in the meeting of the Energy Committee of the Russian-German Chamber of Commerce. The discussion was devoted to the development of electromobility.
At the meeting, Egor Mishcheryakov and Head of the Department for Social and Economic Development, Macroeconomic Analysis and Forecast Lina Nikiforova spoke about the development of electric charging infrastructure in the Leningrad Region.
The Leningrad region has entered the federal pilot experiment to create an infrastructure for electric transport.
Already from 2022, owners of electric vehicles will have a real opportunity to travel between St. Petersburg and the region and along federal highways.
In 2022, 53 "fast" electric filling stations will appear in the region. At each gas station, up to four cars will be charged simultaneously. Charging to 80% will take about 20 minutes. The program will continue in 2023 and 2024. Also, the regional government plans to include a requirement for the construction of electric stations in the construction of high-rise buildings.
The list of federal territories and roads where charging stations for electric vehicles and electric buses will appear in the first place was approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. The pilot experiment is planned to be implemented by 2024. Its participants will be 16 territories and one highway. The creation of infrastructure for electric transport is provided for by the “road map” approved by the Government for the development of production and use of electric transport. It assumes that by 2030 the share of produced electric vehicles in the total production of vehicles will reach 10%. In addition, at least 72 thousand charging stations will be launched in Russia by this time.
