Elektro Ljubljana, one of the five power distribution companies in Slovenia that perform the duties of the distribution system operator, will install another 50 chargers for electric cars by the end of the year.

Elektro Ljubljana has 440 chargers at 200 locations. The company claims it operates the largest network in Slovenia. The country has a total of 821 e-chargers in 296 locations.

President of the Board of Elektro Ljubljana Aleksander Zupančič said the basis for serious development of e-mobility is in a wide placement of e-chargers with an installed capacity of up to 22 kilowatts.

A dense network of EV chargers enables charging at every stop, which reduces the load on the distribution grid and opens up the possibility of grid load management, added Zupančič.

The number of refills increased from 209 to 102,555

Elektro Ljubljana installed the first e-charger in 2011, and the growth in their use is enormous. In 2011, they had 209 refills, and ten years later – 102,555. In 2011, 71 kWh of electricity was consumed, and last year 1.4 million kWh.

The price of 1 kWh ranges from EUR 0.25 to EUR 0.35.

Zupančič pointed out that consumers are most interested in the locations of e-chargers, and the price and quality of the service.

Elektro Ljubljana is one of the five companies that manage the distribution network in Slovenia. SODO has the role of the distribution system operator (DSO), but the five power distribution companies own the infrastructure, so SODO has contracts with them to carry out the tasks of the DSO.

The remaining distribution companies are Elektro Celje, Elektro Gorenjska, Elektro Maribor and Elektro Primorska.
