The entire Munich airport fleet is to become emission-free by 2030. The Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) is supporting this project with a total of around 27 million euros. The latest additions are 33 vehicles and 17 AC charging stations. The BMDV is funding the investment in the amount of 225,716 euros.
As part of the BMDV’s electric mobility funding guideline, AeroGround Flughafen München GmbH is receiving funding totalling 225,716 euros for the procurement of 33 additional e-vehicles and the associated charging infrastructure (17 AC charging stations).
Daniela Kluckert, Parliamentary State Secretary responsible for charging infrastructure on behalf of the BMDV: “Munich airport has big objectives: the entire fleet is to become emission-free by 2030. One third has already been converted. Now a further 33 e-vehicles and 17 charging stations will be added. We have been supporting and accompanying this commitment to climate-friendly mobility around airport aprons for many years. This switchover represents another step towards sustainable airport operations and a clean future for the aviation industry.”
Munich airport operates a total of around 130 passenger vehicles and vans as well as almost 300 handling and special equipment electrically. The entire fleet is to be converted to emission-free drives by 2030. The current share is a little over 30 per cent. These multi-million investments have been supported by BMDV funding since 2018.
- As part of the ‘Funding guideline on alternative drives for buses in passenger transport’, AeroGround GmbH received 23.8 million euros for the procurement of 72 battery buses and their associated maintenance and charging infrastructure.
- In 2018, the BMDV funded the procurement of 19 battery-electric buses as well as 19 DC charging stations under the Immediate Action Programme for Clean Air with a funding volume of 2.64 million euros.
- As part of investment funding for the conversion of existing fleets, the BMDV provided funding to the Flughafen München Gesellschaft for the procurement of 26 passenger vehicles, 56 commercial vehicles, 90 AC-charging stations and 10 fast-charging stations with an overall funding volume of 471,590 euros.
Through the electric mobility funding guideline, the BMDV supports the procurement of e-vehicles, light and specialist vehicles for municipal and commercial fleets as well as the associated charging infrastructure development. Over the period since the BMDV’s electric mobility funding began in 2015, over 23,000 vehicles and almost 9,000 charging infrastructure systems have been approved, allocating over 433 million euros.
The BMDV has also funded the ramp-up of climate-friendly buses since 2021 through its technology-neutral ‘Funding guideline on alternative drives for buses in passenger transport’. The first two investment calls funded around 130 transport companies in the procurement of about 4,000 buses. The third investment call was published on 20/06/23 (submission deadline: 10/09/23).
