Incentives for EV Charging Station Installation in Europe 2023

Introduction

As governments strive to accelerate the transition to electric mobility and achieve carbon neutrality goals, incentives for EV charging station installation have become crucial. This article provides an updated overview of the incentives available for EV charging station installation in various European countries in 2023.

EU’s Commitment to Emission Reduction

The European Union (EU) has set ambitious targets to reduce emissions. Under the “Fit for 55” package, which aligns with the EU’s goal of reducing emissions by at least 55% by 2030, the EU is working on revising its climate, energy, and transport-related legislation. Additionally, the European Parliament has approved a ban on the sale of petrol or diesel cars in the EU from 2035, further emphasizing the shift toward electric mobility.
