Since 2021, AVERE and the Ministry of Energy Transition have been collaborating to produce the monthly charging barometer. The barometer is based on data from Gireve, the e-mobility expert. This barometer provides benchmark information on the number of publicly accessible charging points in France, their geographical distribution, their power. Regional indicators are also available. Additionally, the barometer displays the usage of charging points, their availability rate and session volumes.
Since January , 7,373 new charging stations have been installed across the country. These installations have made 25,830 new charging points available to the public.
