The environment, transport and finance ministries are scheduled to sign a joint ministerial decision tomorrow for a subsidy program supporting electromobility purchases.
Once the joint ministerial decision is published in the government gazette, interested parties will be able to proceed with electric vehicle purchases and apply for subsidies by lodging related invoice information onto an online platform as soon as it is launched, approximately in mid-August.
Tomorrow’s joint ministerial decision will provide the program’s full details, including the procedure and eligibility criteria.
The program is expected to be divided into three categories for private owners, taxi drivers and companies.
The package will offer subsidies of up to 6,000 euros for electric car purchases by private owners, plus additional bonuses if these purchases are combined with withdrawals of old vehicles.
Taxi drivers will be offered subsidies of up to 8,000 euros plus 2,500 euros for compulsory withdrawals of old taxis.
Companies will be offered subsidies of 5,500 euros for each of up to three electric car purchases.
Besides the electromobility subsidy support program, the energy ministry is also preparing an updated Saving at Home package for energy efficiency upgrades of existing buildings. An initial guide is expected to be released next week.
The new Saving at Home program will offer subsidies for RES generation and storage, electric vehicle recharging stations, as well as smart home energy management systems.
Plans submitted will need to promise property energy efficiency lifts by at least three categories in order to be eligible.
Previous Saving at Home subsidy programs were limited to casing, doors, windows and heating-cooling systems, including insulation.
