“Implementation Plan for Nanning Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (2017-2020)” (hereinafter referred to as “Plan”) was approved by Nanning Municipal People’s Government recently and was issued and implemented by Nanning Development and Reform Commission on October, 31, 2018, serving as a guiding document for the planning and building of Nanning charging infrastructure of electric vehicles. The plan is interpreted from such aspects as background and process, framework and main contents, and the effect of the plan.
According to the “Development Guide for the Charging Infrastructure of Electric Vehicles (2015-2020)”, the national development of charging infrastructure for electric vehicle is divided into 3 types of areas, including the rapid development area, demonstration area, and developing area. Guangxi belongs to the developing area. As the capital of Guangxi, Nanning, with its reputation as a Green City and Sponge City, has vigorously promoted the construction of charging infrastructure, which is an important guarantee for developing and promoting the application of the Nanning electric vehicle industry, and an important measure for enhancing the Green City brand, establishing a new international image of “Green Nanning” and “Ecological Nanning”, improving the energy consumption structure, and facilitating energy conservation, emission reduction and environmental protection.
To comprehensively implement the “Guiding Opinions of the General Office of the State Council on Accelerating the Construction of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure” (No.73, 2015, State Council) and “Guideline for the Development of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure” (No.1454, 2015, National Development and Reform Commission), the plan aims at accelerating the extensive application of electric vehicles, promoting the development of electric vehicle industry, improving the infrastructure of the new city, and helping the green development of the city.
