This is the conclusion from the analyses of the Polish Alternative Fuels Association (PSPA). How has the availability of chargers in multi-family homes and blocks of flats changed over the years?
Previously, apartment block residents had to look for stand-alone charging stations away from their homes. The problem was the low availability of electric chargers in the housing estates. Consequently, this led to the formation of social groups excluded from electromobility.
The situation changed on December 24, 2021 – The amendment to the Act on electromobility and alternative fuels introduced the procedure for installing a private charger in cooperatives and housing communities. Since then, chargers for electric cars can be installed not only in single-family houses, but also in underground car parks of multi-family buildings, at the request of a resident. The new regulations will certainly facilitate the installation of private chargers, and these will enrich the constantly expanding network of public charging points.
In our opinion, in order to avoid excluding a large part of society in the electromobile transformation, it is crucial that everyone has the opportunity to charge their electric car in their own home, including multi-family houses. According to a survey conducted by PSPA, this is what over 80% of EV drivers in Poland want.
