Now that incentive programmes are gathering momentum, this is an ideal time for private individuals, self-employed professionals, start-ups as well as companies to seize the opportunity and embark on – or take the next step in – their journey towards zero-emission mobility and a more sustainable future. Thanks to an array of tax credits, rebates and grants on offer from governments, it can be more affordable than you think to install private EV charging solutions at your home or the workplace, or to include charging solutions in your vehicle lease.
The national incentives and benefits for EVs and EV chargers vary greatly throughout Europe, so it is always advisable to check which incentives apply in your particular situation. Some incentives are available as discounts on the installation of the charge point; they might be coordinated by the installation company, or may need to be requested online (via the relevant governmental body) after installation and payment. Ideally, you should make sure you understand the conditions and requirements upfront.
