Number of charging stations in Flanders tripled since 2021

Flanders now counts almost 19,000 public and semi-public charging stations, according to figures from Flemish minister of Mobility and Public Works Lydia Peeters. The minister wants Flanders to have 35,000 stations by 2025.

On 1 January 2021, Flanders only had around 5,000 charging stations, and the government wants to reach 35,000 stations by 2025. Minister Peeters will do a second project call for semi-public charging infrastructure, which should yield 10,000 new charging stations. Other stations are still coming operational from the first call. 10,000 public stations will also be installed in the next two years.

"In two years we have tripled the number of charging stations," stated the minister. "By providing sufficient charging infrastructure, we want to increase driver comfort. It is my ambition to ensure the accelerated expansion of charging stations in Flanders."
