In China, in order to promote the widespread use of new energy vehicles, state-owned power companies and automobile manufacturers are developing charging infrastructure. As of the end of 2019, the number of charging poles in China increased by 56.9% compared to the previous year to 1,129,000 units, the number of charging stations increased by 71.4% to 36,000 stations and there were 306 battery exchange stations, according to the data released by the China Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Promotion Alliance (EVCIPA). EVCIPA forecasts that charging poles will increase by 43.0% and charging stations by 33.3% in 2020. Charging equipment operators are accelerating infrastructure development through business alliances with vehicle manufacturers. Star Charge established a joint venture with VW (China), China FAW and Jianghuai Automobile in July 2019 to develop, design, manufacture and sell charging poles. Qingdao TELD New Energy has formed a partnership with emerging BEV maker Weltmeister Motor (WM Motor) and EV Power Holding joined forces with Aiways Automobile.
