Guangdong province, a coastal region bordering Hong Kong, has built hundreds of thousands of public charging points for electric vehicles in recent years. There were 345,126 public chargers and 19,116 charging stations at the end of September 2022.

Guangdong also has the largest electric vehicle charging network in China, which has more than doubled from last year. In fact, according to BloombergNEF data, that’s about three times as many public chargers across the United States.

A BloombergNEF analysis calculated there were about 112,900 public chargers across the US and 442,000 chargers in Europe at the end of 2021, compared to China’s 1.15 million. Even in just the past 12 months, China added 592,000 public chargers, more than the total the Biden administration wants in 2030.

These charging poles are installed by third-party utility operators, state-owned power companies, the two largest of which are China’s State Grid Corp and China Southern Power Grid. Plus from electric car makers like Tesla Inc and Nio Inc of China and Xpeng Inc.

Tesla operates more than 8,700 Supercharger outlets in 370 Chinese cities, roughly a quarter of its global Supercharger network. In Guangdong, ubiquitous charging is also increasing electric car ownership.

Even according to the Guangdong Bureau of Statistics, sales of electric vehicles jumped 151% in the first half of this year. Guangdong province now has more than 1.4 million electric vehicles, the highest share in China according to the National Monitoring and Management platform for New Energy Vehicles.
