As of May 1, 2021, France had 33,363 charging points open to the public, an increase of +7% compared to our previous barometer (February 2021). While this increase marks a slight upturn in deployments compared to 2020, an acceleration seems increasingly necessary given the deteriorating ratios of the number of vehicles per charging point. The publication of long-awaited regulatory texts, such as the revision of Decree No. 2017-26 of January 12, 2017 on charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, should open up a new dynamic.
At the same time, it should be noted that 90% of users of electrified rechargeable models recharge their vehicles at home or at their place of work: this is why, in addition to public recharging, it is necessary to develop private recharging options, particularly in condominiums.
