New EU Law to Create Massive Electric Vehicle Charging Grid Throughout Europe by 2020

The European Parliament just passed a resolution this week that will require member states to install a specified number of electric vehicle charging stations and hydrogen and natural gas stations by 2020. Germany will set its target to 86,000, Italy will install 72,000, and the UK is planning to build a minimum of 70,000 EV recharging points. This directive will help reduce dependence on fossil fuels and achieve a 60% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from transportion by 2050.
