The City of Helsinki announced on August 14th, 2012, plans for the addition of further charging points to its ongoing expansion of the city’s electrical vehicle infrastructure. City officials announced concrete plans that will see the installation of 33 new parking and charging points for EVs over the course of the next 12months. The installation of planned 100 more will be spread out over the coming years, with plans being formalized at a later time.

The locations of the coming charge points will be plotted according to a list of 113 planned charging points drawn up by the City Planning Department. The planned charging points have been selected specifically on the basis of their ability to support network growth and expansion in the future. As such, these locations represent high traffic areas which would most likely serve a greater number of commuters and businesses. The first wave of charging points will be situated in the city’s most centrally located areas in the interest of increasing visibility and accessibility. Officials estimate that the first wave of charging points would be nearing completion by the end of 2012.

The planned locations are marked in red, with existing locations marked in black, on the map below:
