Powered Business: Funding of Charging Systems for E-Vehicles

The smarter E Podcast Episode 82 | February 24, 2022 | Language: German

The German Federal Ministry of Transport has published a new funding guideline "Non-public charging stations for electric vehicles - companies and municipalities". In the future, this will provide funding for the construction of charging infrastructure at employee parking lots, for electric vehicles in company or municipal fleets, and for company vehicles. The BMDV states that the new program will add an important component to the electromobility funding - in addition to the now expired wallbox funding for private charging points, the "on-site charging infrastructure" program for public charging points and, of course, the much-discussed Germany network for HPC charging. But what is there to consider here? And what lessons can be learned here? Conrad Hammer from the National Charging Infrastructure Control Center in Berlin reveals this and more.


  • 1.26: Current key figures from the potential for charging infrastructure in the commercial sector
  • 7.40: What does the experience from previous programs show, what to look out for?
  • 10.35: How does one concretely benefit from the subsidies?
  • 14.02: Who is allowed to sell electricity and who pays for this electricity?
  • 22.25: For which funding programs should you hurry to apply?
