Determination of location potentials for charging infrastructure with data from Mercedes

Use real-time data from Mercedes vehicles to make location decisions.

"The utilisation of public charging infrastructure is still significantly below its actual capacity."
– Kerstin Andreae, BDEW
By 2030, there should be over one million charging points in Germany...

This would mean that the number of public charging locations for e-cars in Germany would be more than 25 times what it is today.
However, many charging stations in Germany remain well below their actual maximum capacity. This is because, on average, there is currently only one charging process per charging station every five days.

Planning locations better - but how?

One of the greatest challenges of electromobility is to select attractive locations for new charging stations, as well as to further expand popular, frequently used locations.
Charging locations only make sense if they are actually used sufficiently. With sensible planning for new locations, you save costs for rent, expansion and hardware.
