The CHAdeMO Association, which currently suffers some loss of members, announced that it will install 532 new multi-standard chargers in 2016 as part of five EU-funded projects. That includes the Fast-E project in Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic and Slovakia (307 chargers), as well as Mecor and Great in Denmark and Sweden (185) and Unite-E in Belgium, France, Italy and the UK (40).

The European branch of the Japanese organization listed five projects with a total of 532 chargers.

Together with other non-EU-funded project, Europe should be able to exceed 3,500 CHAdeMO chargers in total by the end of the year.

In January, CHAdeMO reported 2,755 compatible-chargers, while CCS Combo, according to the CCS Charge Map, is at over 1,850 (part of those numbers have both plugs).
