Motion requires energy. A truism. And everyone on the move wants to ensure they can recharge their batteries. This means electric mobility needs a widespread charging infrastructure. The StandortTOOL is planning it. Financial incentives are provided via funding support. Research is accompanying the expansion of charging infrastructure, therefore reporting obligation has been linked to the funding of charging stations.
Mobility without emissions needs alternative drives and fuels that are readily available at all times. For the further spread of electric mobility in Germany, sufficient and user-friendly charging stations are necessary. Many people will only buy an electric vehicle if they can charge it within an acceptable period of time and in close proximity.
On behalf of BMVI, the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure, under the umbrella of NOW GmbH, coordinates and manages the activities to expand the charging infrastructure in Germany. It supports the planning, implementation and promotion of the charging infrastructure. In doing so, it always has the overall system of public and non-public charging infrastructure and the users in mind. The goal: Simply charging.
The funding of charging stations within the framework of funding programmes of the Federal Ministry of Transport is linked to a reporting obligation for funding recipients. The reporting takes place via the online platform ’OBELIS‘. Further information on this can be found on the website of the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure next to the heading ‘OBELIS’.
