The Israeli authorities are planning to invest 25 million shekels (about 6M euros) in installing charging stations for electric vehicles. The energy ministry will release four tenders in October for a total of 2,560 charging stations to be set up across Israel.
Of these, 60 will be fast charging stations destined to line interurban roads, while 2,500 slow charging spots will be installed in urban areas. The government will cover 50 to 75 percent of the cost, according to the tenders.
The winning bidders are expected to sign contracts by January 2019, and to complete the project by 2021/22.
