Electric mobility in the city has taken a big leap forward with the integration of all municipal charging points into the Endolla Barcelona network, which is managed by the BSM public operator. The aim is to improve the service and promote the use of electric vehicles over conventional motor options.

This opting for electromobility responds to the metropolitan commitment to tackle the climate emergency through the use of healthy and sustainable transport and help to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and noise pollution.

Service’s new website

Thanks to Endolla Barcelona’s new website, more than five thousand users electric vehicles will be able to access real-time information on the availabilityh and location of electric-charging stations, with a network made up of 503 points along public roads and municipal parking places. To access the service, all you need do is sign up for it on the website and request an identification card. The cards related to vehicles; therefore, you will need to request a card for each electric vehicle you wish to register. Once you’ve obtained it, you can use it at any public station for free, as the Authority bears the service’s entire costs.

What is more, an application is expected to come into service this autumn which will enable mobiles to actívate charging points and reserve points located on streets without the need for using cards.

Extension of the charging network

The next few years are expected to see investments in the electric-vehicle charging network increase by 2.6 million euros, which will be allocated to the construction of 100 charging points in underground car parks and 40 quick-charging stations on public roads.
