German Ministry of Transport offers a funding guideline for charging infrastructure for electric vehicles

On 18 May 2016 the German government adopted an incentive program to promote electro mobility in the country. The funding program “Charging Infrastructure Electric Vehicles in Germany” aims at building a nationwide charging infrastructure with 15,000 charging stations all over Germany.

From 2017 to 2020 the government will spend up to 100 million Euros for 10,000 public charging stations and up to 200 million Euros for 5,000 public fast charging stations in metropolises and along federal highways.  


Private investors, cities and communities should be supported by building charging stations for example at gas stations, shopping malls, sport centers, e-car-sharing stations, train stations or airports.
