February 21 (Renewables Now) – Spain currently has around 63,000 electric vehicles (EVs), with 21,672 of them in the city of Madrid and 16,700 in Catalonia, Spanish grid operator Red Electrica de Espana (REE) said Wednesday.

REE presented the E-mobility Guide for Local Entities, a manual drawn up together with the Spanish Municipalities and Provinces Federation (FEMP) and the Institute for Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE).

The guide is the fruit of a collaboration agreement between REE and FEMP signed last year, aimed at promoting the use of EVs in all parts of Spain, offering technical assistance to local communities and facilitating the installation of charging points.

REE and FEMP have set a target for 100,000 charging stations to be installed by 2030.
