Luxembourg to fund 29 charging infrastructure projects

The government in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg will invest more than 4,5 million euros in additional charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. The idea is to construct 672 additional charging points, of which 44 fast chargers. A total of 29 projects from 19 companies have been selected as part of the first call for funding.

However, 510 of the 672 charging points will only be used by the companies themselves. Of the remaining 162 charging points, 142 are to be available for public use around the clock and 20 during the companies’ opening hours. It is not clear from the announcement whether all 44 fast chargers will be publicly accessible charging points.

Aimed at all-size companies

The Luxembourg government’s funding for charging infrastructure projects is aimed at companies of all sizes. For the fast chargers, companies will be subsidized with up to 50% of the investment costs related to the construction of the charging stations. There are additional exemptions for small and medium-sized enterprises.

“These results show that Luxembourg companies are ready to take up the challenge of electric mobility,” says Energy Minister Claude Turmes. “Every new charging station installed on our territory contributes to improving the density of our charging point network, which is already one of the densest in Europe.”

“By supporting companies that deploy charging infrastructure, we contribute to the decarbonization of transport and the development of electricity in Luxembourg. The 29 funded projects are part of the government’s efforts to achieve the objectives of the energy transition,” commented Franz Fayot, Minister of Economy.

Sustainable mobility

The Luxembourg government launched the new subsidy to encourage more people to adopt electric and ‘soft’ mobility options, thus contributing to developing clean and sustainable mobility.

Only natural persons who own or lease the parking space where the charging station is to be installed may apply for this aid. The parking space must be situated – inside or outside a building – in Luxembourg and not be accessible to the general public. The next call for funding is scheduled for early 2023.
