Nine electric vehicle charging stations open at parking lots in the centre of Moscow
There are plans to set up about 70 charging stations in the paid parking area and in parking lots near shopping centres.

Nine electric vehicle charging stations have been set up in the paid parking area in the centre of Moscow.

“Stations are being set up under partner programmes of the Department for Transport and electricity companies,” said Deputy Mayor for Transport and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov. “Before the end of the year there are plans to connect about 70 stations in total. Charging stations will be located in the paid parking area on the roads and streets inside the Third Ring Road and also in parking lots at shopping centres.

According to Maxim Liksutov, the expansion of the infrastructure will raise economic efficiency and reliability of energy provision for the Moscow transport complex. It will also encourage the appearance of new electric vehicles on the roads, which will reduce vehicle emissions. Today electric vehicles may be left at paid city parking lots free of charge.

Some of the charging stations belong to the Rosseti power company and others to the Mosenergo company. To charge your vehicle at a Rosseti station you receive a special card at the company office free of charge. Charging at a Mosenergo station is possible with a Troika card. Until the end of 2016, stations of both operators will charge electric vehicles free of charge.
