100 million from OPD to support alternative fuel infrastructure

By 2021, according to the Ministry of Transport, hundreds of standard electric vehicle charging stations should be available to drivers in the Czech Republic. Their construction will be supported by the Ministry from European funds. The Operational Program Transport (OPD) can travel up to 100 million crowns in support of the alternative fuel infrastructure.

The Ministry of Transport called on 25 January. The deadline for submitting applications will be June 15, 2018. Candidates who run an economic activity in the following areas: electrical installations, electricity distribution, electricity trade, or have experience with operating at least 10 publicly available refueling stations and who submit a project to building of common recharging stations in the Czech Republic. The scope of the project depends entirely on the applicant's discretion. The maximum rate of support for eligible expenditure may reach up to 70% in this call.

According to Minister Hokka, the applications for subsidies will be evaluated in particular in terms of economy, readiness and relevance of the project. In view of the above funding allocation, it can be assumed that the maximum number of submitted projects will be supported and will meet the conditions of the call.

Further calls to build an additional network of recharging stations promise the Ministry to declare over the next two years. By the end of 2023, there should be at least 800 recharging stations to meet the target set in the National Clean Action Plan National Action Plan, which was approved by the government in November 2015.

In addition to refueling stations for electromobiles, the Ministry of Transport also wants to support the construction of filling stations for CNG, LNG and hydrogen. The calls will be announced during the spring of 2018. In total, the Ministry of Transport has allocated 1.2 billion crowns for this subsidy program within the OPD.
