During the just-past 2019 Spring Festival, according to data from the State Grid Corporation of China, 26 provinces have achieved 1,509.9 kilowatt-hours of electric vehicle charge and exchange, an increase of 154% over the same period of the 2018 Spring Festival. The provinces with large charging capacity are mainly distributed in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei and the Yangtze River Delta, among which the fast charging capacity of Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao Expressway, Shen-Hai Expressway, Da-Guang Expressway, Tang-Jin Expressway and Beijing-Shanghai Expressway has increased significantly.
At present, 45 pairs of service areas have been built in Guangdong Province, totaling 247 charging piles. In order to meet the needs of the general public, the Guangdong Provincial Department of Transportation, the Provincial Development and Reform Commission and the Guangdong Power Grid Corporation formulated the "Guangdong Province Expressway Charging Infrastructure Construction Plan (2018-2020)" in April 2018. The plan clearly points out that 89.5 pairs of service areas will be added to the Guangdong section of Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao Expressway, Deep Sea Expressway, Changshen-Guangzhou-Kunming Expressway, Pearl River Delta and Northwest Eastern Guangdong. By 2020, Guangdong will realize full coverage of charging piles in all service areas in the Pearl River Delta and will also promote the construction of charging infrastructure in service areas in Northwest Eastern Guangdong.
