Beijing (PingWest)—China has built the world's largest electronic vehicle charging infrastructure network, attracting capital from diversified sources, Sina Finance reported on Monday.

By June this year, the number of EV charging piles used in China exceeded 1 million, according to data released by National Energy Administration's China Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Promotion Alliance.

Public charging piles in China totaled more than 410,000 by the end of June, while the number of private charging piles surpassed 590,000 by the same period.

The top 10 municipalities and provinces for public charging piles are Beijing, Shanghai, East China's Jiangsu province, South China's Guangdong province, East China's Shandong and Zhejiang provinces, North China's Hebei province, East China's Anhui province, Tianjin and Central China's Hubei province.

The number indicates an explosion of charging infrastructure development and more capital will flow into the industry to build an ecosystem for EV charging, industrial insiders said.
