The Malanka network of charging stations summed up the work for the half of the year and voiced current statistics on the number of filling stations and electric cars in Belarus. Since early summer, the number of electric cars in Belarus has doubled. If in early spring it was mentioned that in Belarus there are slightly more than 400 electric cars, then, according to Belorusneft estimates, in early August, the number of electric cars in the country exceeded 800.
The largest number of electric charging stations in Minsk is 171. In 2020, 110 more fast stations are planned to be installed in the capital. Most of them will be located in the city center, close to shopping, entertainment and cultural and sports facilities. However, in the sleeping areas of the capital, electric car drivers also have the opportunity to charge.
“Our main task is to provide comfort to drivers of electric cars with convenient location of filling stations. We install fast stations near shopping and entertainment centers, in the parking lots of supermarkets and stores. The owner of the electric car, coming to the mall, is able to connect the car to the charging station and go about his business. When the owner comes back, the electric car is already loaded. It is convenient and comfortable”, – explained Andrey Kotik, Belorusneft deputy director.
Apart from the number of electric filling stations, Belorusneft has calculated how many kW electric cars are charged per month and how much time is spent on it.
Thus, in August at Malanka stations electric cars were charged to 80 thousand kWh. That is, the charges that the Belarusian electric cars received, which is 4500 kilometers, with a reserve would be enough for a trip from Minsk to Lisbon.
If we translate the charging sessions into hours, it took more than 10 thousand hours or 3, 5 years to charge all electric cars per month.
As for the number of electric charging stations in regional cities, Brest and Brest region are leading. For this year it is planned to install 15 electric charging stations there. By the end of the year their number in Brest region will grow to 34
