First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov held a meeting on the development of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. The discussion took place within the framework of the implementation of the socio-economic development initiative of the Russian Federation and the federal project “Electric car and hydrogen car”.

During the meeting, Andrey Belousov noted that in connection with the promising growth of charging stations in the next few years, it is necessary to work on the issue of creating a digital environment that will make the use of electric vehicles as efficient and accessible as possible.

“In the next six years, the number of charging stations should increase more than 10 times. With their number increasing, it is necessary to provide motorists with comfortable access to up-to-date information about their work,” he said.

The First Deputy Prime Minister also ordered the development of a minimum set of requirements for national charging station services, which should cover the majority of Russian regions. These requirements, in particular, include the need to monitor the status of the station and individual connectors in real time, identify stations in map services, and the ability to receive feedback on the operation of stations from other users.

“In order to popularize the electric vehicle market, we must not only make stations publicly accessible, but also create a system, a “digital connection,” on the basis of which operators will develop their services for the convenience of consumers,” Andrey Belousov emphasized.

At the moment, the number of fast electric filling stations in Russia is about 1,150 units, almost all of them were put into operation as part of the Government’s “Electric Vehicle and Hydrogen Car” initiative and a special subsidy program that has been in effect since 2022. The country’s fleet of electric vehicles has increased to more than 40 thousand vehicles, of which about 10 thousand were produced in Russia.

The meeting was attended by representatives of operators managing fast charging stations, as well as departments responsible for implementing the initiative – the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Communications.
