Luxembourg invests further in charging infrastructure

Luxembourg has completed its fourth tender call for charging infrastructure and has assigned funding to support the construction of 434 new charging points.

Following the fourth call for projects to support companies investing in charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, the Luxembourg government has selected 34 projects to install 434 new charging points. The companies will receive a subsidy of up to 50% of their investment.

34 projects

A total of 34 projects were selected, spread across the whole country. The projects themselves were submitted by 17 companies, including petrol stations, supermarkets, hotel operators, and industrial companies. The total amount of funding granted by the state as part of this call for projects amounts to €4.8 million.

As a whole, 434 charging points will be subsidized, of which 224 are set to be private, and 210 will be publicly accessible. Last summer, Luxembourg also announced a charging infrastructure grant, under which 264 fast-charging stations were installed in the small European nation.

Successful scheme

Lex Delles, Minister for the Economy in Luxembourg, explains how things are different from the last three charging tenders: “This type of aid is not only appreciated by businesses, but the number of charge points approved has also risen steadily since the first call.”

“We can, therefore, conclude that the scheme is a success. This success of the scheme is an important pillar for the decarbonization of mobility and transport and removes a barrier for electromobility,’ he adds.

Luxembourg also has a wall box subsidy program for home charging, which was extended until the end of 2024 last August.
