Charging Infrastructure Policies
Under the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) Member States are required to ensure a minimum total power output is provided through publicly accessible recharging stations and that fast-charging pools are installed along major European traffic corridors. In February of 2023, the European Investment Bank announced that it will award a €40 million 10-year loan for the deployment of ~3,000 EV charging stations in Greece. ~49% of new chargers will be located on the Trans-European Network for Transport (TEN-T).
Greece’s new Green Taxi program has a total budget of €40 million to replace ~2,000 ICE taxis with electric versions. The replacement will be subsidized at 40% with a maximum of €17,500 per vehicle. An additional €5,000 will be paid for the scrapping of older ICE taxis and an extra €500 can be awarded for the installation of an intelligent charging point at home or in a company car park. The government also provides a 30% subsidy for the purchase of an EV with a maximum amount of €8,000 and an additional €1,000 for priority populations such as disabled persons, families with at least 3 dependent children and young people up to 29 years of age.
