It is crucially in the interests of the state of Berlin and numerous other stakeholders to support the market ramp-up of electromobility with a needs-driven expansion of the charging infrastructure (LIS) in order to support the targets in the energy, climate and transport sectors set out in the Berlin Energy Transition Act (EWG Bln). This includes the expansion of the charging infrastructure, particularly in the area of private and commercial passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. Qualitatively and quantitatively, this expansion is aligned with the goals of the EU Commission relating to public-access charging, which are currently undergoing revision, as well as with national requirements and those of the state of Berlin. Transparent coordination and a coordinated approach of the various actors will lead to a reduction of risks, a meaningful interlinking of use cases (see glossary) and services, the avoidance of duplicated work and more reliable implementation of profitability calculations. A crucial factor here is the collaboration of several Senate administrations with each other and with the state-owned enterprises. This is because the expansion of charging infrastructure in public spaces with the help of appropriate tools, subsidies and activities needs to be supplemented on private but publicly accessible land owned by the state, as well as on private land which is not accessible to the public. This requires the development of a joint strategy on the part of all stakeholders.
