The expansion of the charging infrastructure will be carried out in 2 phases:
Around 400 charging facilities for electric cars will be installed in public and semi-public spaces by September 2016. Construction will take place in the given "search areas." There are additional plans for 20 direct current fast charge points (Phase I).
From April 2016 the expansion will take place in line with discernable demand (Phase II).
A single "user interface" will be introduced as part of the expansion:
All of the charging infrastructure can be used with the same charge card.
All the information about locations, equipment and availability will be grouped together on the information platform (www.VIZ-info.de) of Berlin's traffic information center.
