Within the framework of a pilot project for the creation of the infrastructure of electric stations in the cities of Astana, Almaty and along the "Astana-Shchuchinsk" highway, a list of potential locations where charging stations will be installed has been prepared. 50 ES in the capital will be located on the site of major government agencies, sports complexes, parking lots for shopping and entertainment centers and residential complexes. It is expected that most of the charging stations in Astana will be installed in open areas, and it is also possible to charge an electric vehicle in covered premises.
