MOVALT Infrastructure Plan/ Development of recharging infrastructure for Alternative Vehicles

Last updated: 3 September 2019
The Directive 2014/94/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2014 on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure, transposed into national law by means of Royal Decree 639/2016, of 9 December 2016 and the National Action Framework, stipulates that Member States should ensure that recharging points accessible to the public are built up with adequate coverage, in order to enable electric vehicles to circulate at least in urban/suburban agglomerations. Considering the existing barriers associated with the recharging infrastructure for electric vehicles, it is deemed advisable to maintain support for alternative energies in the transport sector by launching the aid programme for the deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure: the MOVALT Infrastructure Plan. The funding for this programme was a maximum budget of €20 million to promote the roll-out of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The aid under consideration will be managed by the IDAE (Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving) and will be allocated to the deployment of the battery charging systems for electric vehicles mentioned above, under both a direct purchase scheme and rental financing operations.
