Electric vehicle infrastructure projects in China are growing swiftly if not ubiquitously. The latest example: a new set of two charging stations for electric cars at the Universiade Center in Shenzhen that were put into service this week, along with 134 pole chargers around town. The centralized stations have quick-charging options while the poles are mostly designed for overnight (slow) charging. The People's Daily says that this is currently "China's largest charging station in terms of area and investment scale." It cost $41.5 million (U.S.) to build.

The charging stations are part of the $41.5 million (U.S.) Universiade Center, which Green Car Congress calls a "landmark green building project." The sports-focused project is being built for the World University Games coming in August 2011.
