Following the fourth call for projects to support companies investing in charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, the Luxembourg government has selected 34 projects for the installation of 434 new charging points. The companies will receive a subsidy of up to 50 per cent of their investment.

A total of 34 projects were selected, spread across the whole country. The projects themselves were submitted by 17 companies, including petrol stations, supermarkets, hotel operators and industrial companies. The total amount of funding granted by the state as part of this call for projects amounts to 4.8 million euros.

A total of 434 charging points will be subsidised, of which 224 are set to be private and 210 will be publicly accessible. Last summer, Luxembourg had also announced a charging infrastructure grant, under which 264 fast-charging stations were installed in the small European nation.

Lex Delles, Minister for the Economy, explains how things are different from the last three charging tender: “This type of aid is not only appreciated by businesses, but the number of chargepoints approved has also risen steadily since the first call. We can therefore conclude that the scheme is a success. This success of the scheme is an important pillar for the decarbonisation of mobility and transport and removes a barrier for electromobility.”

For home charging, Luxembourg also has a wallbox subsidy programme in place, which was extended until the end of 2024 last August.
