Private investors, cities, towns and municipalities can, as of today, again submit funding application for the deployment of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. With a fifth call within the scope of the “Funding Guidelines for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure in Germany”, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is supporting the deployment of up to 7,000 normal and 3,000 rapid charging points.

Federal Minister Andreas Scheuer said:

From now on, charging points at all customer car parks are eligible for funding, thus including car parks that are not open around the clock. This is another important step in the roll-out of sufficient charging facilities across Germany. Because charging must be possible everywhere: at home, at work and at the supermarket.

Further information on the charging infrastructure programme of the Federal Ministry

The objective of the Federal Ministry’s charging infrastructure programme is the deployment of charging infrastructure that provides universal nationwide coverage with 15,000 charging posts. To achieve this, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is providing a total of 300 million euros over the period to 2020. Private investors, cities, towns and municipalities can submit applications for funding. The funding covers up to 50 percent of the eligible costs of not only the deployment of the charging post, but also the connection to the grid and the assembly. One requirement for funding is, among others, that the charging posts are operated using electricity from renewable energy sources.
