Piece by piece, EVSE is spreading across Europe. Little Luxembourg is the latest country to establish a charging network, announcing that up to 850 public charging stations will be installed over the next five years. Details of where the chargers will be located and how they will be operated and maintained remain to be worked out, but plans call for them to be spread across the Grand Duchy, particularly at park-and-ride facilities and public transport stations.

Secretary of State for Economy Francine Closener said that the proposed number could be increased if local communities provide funding.

There are currently thought to be 74 public charging stations in Luxembourg, with 187 plugs. In May, Tesla opened its first Supercharger in the country, a four-plug station at a hotel in Munsbach.

In April 2014, the Luxemburger Wort reported that there were 292 EVs and 2,042 hybrids registered in the country, out of a total auto fleet of around 355,000.
