Boost for eMobility- the climate protection package up to 2030

In 2015, 197 countries at the World Climate Conference in Paris committed to combatting global warming and achieving greenhouse gas neutrality worldwide. EU countries have also joined in. All participants must adhere to predefined annual budgets for CO2 emissions. To this end, the German government has drafted a climate protection package that will be implemented in two stages: By 2030, CO2 emissions are to be reduced by 40% compared to 1990, and by 2050 they are to be eliminated altogether. We have summarised the effects of this climate protection package on eMobility:

Changeover to eMobility will continue to be subsidised

In the automotive sector, the 2030 climate protection programme provides greater support for the sale of electric cars, which is to be achieved, among other things, by extending the existing subsidy programmes . By 2030, 10 million electric vehicles are to be registered in Germany.

Expansion of charging infrastructure

In order to ensure sufficient power supply for the growing number of electric cars, the expansion of the public charging infrastructure is also to be ramped up. According to the BDEW charging station register, drivers can currently charge at around 24,000 publicly accessible charging points across Germany. This is already a big step forward, as this number has increased by a full 50% compared to the start of 2019. However, the plan is to increase the number to one million.

In the “Charging Station Infrastructure” master plan presented by the federal government, a goal has been set stating that charging options should be offered at all filling stations in Germany. An important prerequisite for the rapid development of eMobility is the availability and accessibility of charging points.

Commercial and private charging infrastructure is also to be subsidised in order to relieve the burden on public charging stations. To this end, there are, among other things, tax benefits for charging at employers’ premises until 2030. In addition, for charging at home, the “craftsman’s bonus” can be claimed to cover the installation costs. Another new aspect is that landlords are automatically obliged to give permission to install charging infrastructure.

New measures for public transport

The list of measures goes on. Local public transport is also to become more sustainable: by 2030, half of the city buses are to be electric.

And trucks will not be spared from the measures either: by 2023 the truck toll will have a CO2 surcharge. The climate package comes just in time for eMobility. We can only hope that the numerous subsidies will help to give eMobility a further boost.
