“China New Energy Vehicle Consumer Guide and Construction of Charging Piles”the project is aimed at guiding the market and improving the convenience of purchasing, using and installing charging piles for new energy vehicles, helping to transform the promotion of new energy vehicles in China from policy-driven to market-driven.
of the project
development of new energy vehicles is inseparable from the strong support of
national and local governments at all levels, however, consumers' willingness
to purchase is still mainly driven by the policy of purchase and traffic
restrictions, and the awareness and acceptance of new energy vehicles is still
insufficient. At the same time, consumers interested in purchasing new energy
vehicle products have many doubts about how to choose products, install
charging piles and use electric vehicles safely, as information sources are
scattered and often interest-driven and difficult to discern. In addition,
linkages between the industry, policy and consumers are weak, and there is a
lack of effective communication bridges, making it difficult for consumers to
give feedback and get solutions to the practical difficulties they encounter in
the actual usage environment.
result, BestEV, with the support of the Energy Foundation, launched the
"China New Energy Vehicle Consumer Guide and Pile Building Guide"
project in October 2019 to guide consumers in their vehicle purchase choices
and provide the most detailed and realistic guidance in all aspects of the
purchase, use and charging process.
an operation manual has been prepared for the installation of private charging
piles, combining the policy benefits and practical conditions of different
cities, and sorting out the policies, procedural specifications, process
requirements and precautions to be taken for the construction of piles in local
residential communities and office premises through case studies and other
forms of practical guidance.
An, Executive Director of the Energy and Transportation Innovation Centre, gave
an opening speech and Ms. Wenwen Wang, Senior Manager of the Clean
Transportation Project/BestEV Project Leader, presented the results of the
ongoing phases of the project: the China New Energy Answer System, the guide to
building private charging piles - using North, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Qiong as
examples, and a collection of short videos on consumer research and

at this stage of the project are clearly in line with the positioning to
promote the development of new energy vehicles. Future work will further
improve the existing research content, consult with experts in the relevant
fields of the industry to control the accuracy of the output materials, and
also continue to strengthen online and offline communication through short
videos and graphics to give consumers the most accurate and practical help and
