As part of its EU National Resilience and Recovery Plan, Luxembourg developed three pillars to orient its national policies, to develop the EU's political objectives in Luxembourg, including Social Cohesion and Resilience, Green Transition, and Digital & Innovative Governance.
The Minister of the Economy, Franz Foyer, and the Minister of Energy, Claude Turmes, have presented a new support scheme for companies investing in charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. Both public charging stations and private ones within companies are included under the scheme. The capacity has to be at least 175 KW for being eligible. Up to 50% of the costs related to charging stations will be eligible for reimbursements. The purpose of the government is to decarbonise the transport sector, by constructing a solid infrastructure for electromobility.
The government committed to reduce its GHG emissions by 55% until 2030, mainly through the decarbonisation of transport, by increasing its energy efficiency standards with the acquisition of vehicles at a low or zero emissions rate, and the development of infrastructures with alternative fuels, whilst developing electromobility for various types of transport.
The expected budget allocation for this policy is 30.5 million EUR funding from EU RFF package, and an additional 9.5 million from alternative sources (national investments and/or other EU funding instruments) dedicated to charging infrastructure.
