Yazaki CHAdeMO gen 2

CHAdeMO's recent general assembly revealed a lot of interesting information about the CHAdeMO fast charging protocols development and roll-out around the world.

In fact, as Japan is already heavily covered by CHAdeMO outlets (some ~6,500 worth), the main focus in the news presentation was about the infrastructure in Europe.

Over the past two years, the number of CHAdeMO outlets in Europe has moved from 1,119 to 1,838 to 3,178 (as of May 2016).

As you can see in the above map, the average density of the chargers in European countries is much higher today than only a couple years ago.

Europe is also well ahead of the U.S. in total deployment, which stands at nearly 1,800.

The highest volume of chargers in Europe can be found in the UK and in France, but the density is highest in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Denmark, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia and Ireland:

When data like this provided, there is often a question of how many CHAdeMOs are stand-alone units, and how many are multi-standard units with CCS Combo included.

Well, about half the stations are now multi-standard:
