China’s State Grid will build more charg­ing fa­cil­i­ties and ex­pand pub­lic fast-charge net­works for elec­tric ve­hi­cles in fu­ture years, the com­pany’s chair­man said on Sun­day. The com­pany plans to build 10,000 charg­ing sta­tions and 120,000 charg­ing poles by 2020, Shu Yin­biao, chair­man of the State Grid, told a fo­rum. The com­pany will ex­pand its pub­lic fast-charge net­works for elec­tric cars in ma­jor Chi­nese cities in­clud­ing Bei­jing, Shang­hai and Hangzhou, where a charg­ing fa­cil­ity will be found within a ra­dius of less than one km, ac­cord­ing to Shu. By 2015, the State Grid had built fast-charge net­works cov­er­ing 11,000 kilo­me­ters of high­ways be­tween ma­jor cities, and it would fur­ther ex­pand the net­works to cover another 36,000 kilo­me­ters of in­ter-city high­ways by 2020, he said.
