Good news for all electric drivers: The number of charging stations is continuously increasing; according to Statista, there were around 39,500 public charging points in Germany in February 2021. The transition of a society that is moving away from petrol cars and towards electromobility is in full swing. The German government has enacted new laws to provide one million charging points by 2030. A financial grant of six billion euros from the Federal Ministry of Transport is intended to help with this. Currently, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is again promoting the development of public charging infrastructure. With funding quotas of up to 60%, a large part of the investment costs can be covered. Mer offers the appropriate hardware and operating solutions. And paying at public charging stations is also to become easier: A new law will enable electric drivers to make contactless payments by credit card at the charging stations in the future.  

At Mer, we work every day to further expand the charging infrastructure in Germany. We enable companies, municipal utilities and local authorities to provide sustainable charging solutions at their respective locations - using clean energy from wind and hydro power. As a location partner, we take care of the planning and implementation on site. With the surge in newly registered electric cars, we want to ensure that our drivers can charge their cars anywhere: on the motorway, at the company site, in their own garage or while shopping.

A good decision - and 100 people drive electrically

There are more than a billion passenger cars in the world and forecasts show the curve going steeply upwards in the next few years. This has devastating consequences: In addition to dependence on fossil fuels, traffic-related CO2 emissions are harming our planet - not to mention the pollution and noise in larger cities.
