Number of electric charging points in Brussels boosted this winter

The number of charging points for electric vehicles in Brussels is at 17 at present, but another 35 should be added by the end of the winter. This was confirmed by the Brussels Mobility Minister Elke Van den Brandt (Flemish greens). 

At present, there are charging stations in Schaarbeek (2), Jette (5), Ganshoren (4), Evere (4) and Etterbeek (2). Each station can feed two electric cars at once. The further extension of the network got delayed over the past year, but things should get moving soon now.

By the end of the winter, 35 new stations should be ready. The aim is to go to 100 points on public roads, which will be done by PitPoint. Van den Brande underlined that this figure only concerns public charging points, and that there are many more on, for example, private parking lots.
