Brussels helps car park owners install charging terminals
Brussels has launched a new initiative supporting electric vehicle charging for public and logistical vehicles, as well as taxis. This will provide funding for car park owners.
Public Service, Bruxelles Environnement's initiative and part of the city's ambition to develop a consequent network of battery loading points and charging terminals on its territory, provides financial aid to support private investments in charging infrastructure.
Owners of private parking lots (including taxi and logistics companies) can now benefit from financial helps between € 25.000 and € 100.000 to support the installation of electric charging infrastructure. This measure aims to boost the development of electric (semi-public) charging points in Brussels, with special attention to impactful sectors, such as logistics and taxis.
To receive the funding, the selected submitters should spend the grant on adapting and reinforcing the electrical network or infrastructure, not on the charging terminals themselves. After benefiting from financial help, the charging infrastructure should be available to neighbours 24/7, with exceptions made for taxi and logistics companies.
