Daniela Kluckert, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV), has presented a funding notification in the amount of 225,737.10 euros to Pankow’s District Mayor Dr Cordelia Koch. The district’s goal is to procure 13 new e-vehicles and 13 charging infrastructure units.

The project is funded within the framework of the BMDV’s Electric Mobility Funding Guideline. The funding guideline is coordinated by NOW GmbH and implemented by Project Management Jülich (PtJ).

Daniela Kluckert, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport: “Our cities, municipalities and districts have a central role to play in climate protection. After all, we will only achieve our ambitious climate targets if people also participate at the municipal level. By converting the municipal vehicle fleet to climate-friendly drive systems, the cities are setting a good example and demonstrating to citizens that electric mobility works in practice. I am pleased that we at the BMDV are closely accompanying and supporting this project with the Electric Mobility Funding Guideline.

With the procurement of 13 new vehicles and 13 charging points in the district of Pankow, we are one step closer to Berlin’s committed goal of converting the entire vehicle fleet of the administration to climate-friendly drives by 2030.”

Dr Cordelia Koch, District Mayor: “With the funding, we will double the share of our e-vehicle fleet virtually overnight. I am pleased that the Pankow district office will visibly set a good example in matters of e-mobility on the streets of Pankow!”

Currently, the Pankow district office has 147 vehicles (including 14 e-vehicles) at 13 locations as well as ten e-charging points at two locations. For a complete fleet conversion by 2030, 12 to 13 vehicles per year will need to be replaced by electric vehicles.
