Guiding opinion to accelerate the promotion and deployment of New Energy Vehicles (NEVs)
This guiding opinion serves as an implementation guidance for the State Council's "Development Plan for Energy Saving and New Energy Vehicle Industry (2012 - 2020)". The aim is to accelerate the deployment of New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) which comprise pure electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles and fuel cell vehicles through a range of government- and market-led support programmes.
Key pillars include:
- Accelerating the construction of charging facilities through development of technical standards, improving urban planning and land use policy for charging facilities, advancing charging technologies etc.
- Guiding enterprises to innovate business models especially with regards to establishing effective after-sales services, recycling, innovation in investment and financing as well as innovative application of information technology.
- Promoting the role of the public sector in deployment through public procurement of NEVs and using more NEVs in public services.
- Improving the policy environment for NEVs through consumer subsidies, reducing fuel subsidies, tax incentives for purchase of NEVs, funding for R&D, improving financial services for NEVs etc.
