Electric Car Charging Raises Questions for Residents’ Associations

2 March 2020 – Brainsre.news

Currently, charging points are scarce in city centres and, although some new build developments have already included them in their parking lots, thanks to the Royal Decree passed in 2014, which obliges them to pre-install such connections, the rest of the Residents’ Associations are having to handle questions on the topic from their residents.

According to data compiled by AEDIVE (the Business Association for the Development and Promotion of Electric Vehicles or ‘la Asociación Empresarial para el Desarrollo e Impulso del Vehículo Eléctrico’ in Spanish), electric vehicles could account for 50% of global automotive sales by 2030. Madrid, as one of the main global capital cities, is encouraging its residents’ associations to adapt their facilities to incorporate charging points for these vehicles. “20% of the residents’ associations in Madrid, those administered by non-professional managers, are still unaware of the steps they need to follow to install an electric vehicle charging point”, explains Isabel Bajo, President of CAFMadrid.
