Baden-Wurttemberg promotes charging infrastructure in parking-promotes

The Land Baden-Wurttemberg promotes the construction of electric car charging stations in so-called E-district hubs with a total of four million euros. These car parks with good charging infrastructure for electric cars are a pioneer for e-mobility, says in a recent communication. Until the 15th. September, interested companies can make an application. The start of the production is sought for October 2021.

The state government wants to continue the expansion of electromobility with the new funding program. At the same time, in the interest of quality of life in the cities and communities on the streets should be parked less. These goals serves the promotion of so-called E-Quartiershubs – parking garages with a good loading infrastructure. The Ministry of Transport wants to promote up to five of these E-Quartiershubs and thus put incentives to relocate roadspace in central parking garages / garages.

New parking garages / garages are to be built or expanded existing plants, which are equally accessible to residents and residents, customers and corporate guests. The high incentive in an E-QuartierShub to park in the fact that a high number of parking areas are equipped with charging infrastructure and different mobility offers (taxis, sharing vehicles, pedelecover stations and other).

“It is our goal to reduce traffic in the cities and electrify the existing vehicles to electrify. In this case, the reduction of parking areas in the street area and cityscape plays an important role, coupled to a concentration of parking areas with charging infrastructure for e-vehicles.”- Winfried Hermann, Transport Minister Baden-Wurttemberg

With the funding call, especially companies such as municipal works, retailers or companies are addressed with their own parking garages / garages, as they already have appropriate surfaces. A cooperation with the local municipality is mandatory for the application. However, municipalities have the opportunity to submit applications themselves. For funding, funds from the Landesgemeindeverkehrsfinanzierungsgesetz (LGVFG) are prepared, the applications can be submitted to the competent regional councils.
