Shenzhen unveils plan for 300 supercharging stations by 2025
China's southern boomtown Shenzhen has announced plans to construct 300 new supercharging stations over the next three years, in a move to further facilitate charging for new-energy vehicles (NEVs).
The announcement was made at the International Digital Energy Expo 2023, where the city also debuted its first fully liquid-cooled supercharging demonstration station. The initiative aims to create as many supercharging stations as gas stations in the city by 2025.
This new technology provides a quieter, more stable and safer charging environment compared to traditional air-cooling methods. Furthermore, with fewer parts susceptible to wear, the equipment's lifespan can be up to 20 years longer.
The planned supercharging stations will be mainly built around high-traffic areas like airports, high-speed rail hubs, municipal parks and commercial centers, to support the growing demand for charging infrastructure.
Shenzhen is home to 24,000 new-energy and digital-energy enterprises, and boasts ownership of 860,000 NEVs. The city's penetration rate of NEVs exceeds 60 percent, noted Qin Weizhong, mayor of the city.
Shenzhen has already rolled out a plan that seeks to increase NEV ownership to 1.3 million units by 2025.
