Förordning (2019:525) om statligt stöd för installation av laddningspunkter för elfordon
Ordinance (2019:525) on state aid for the installation of charging points for electric vehicles
The Ordinance (2019:525) has introduced a state grant to support the installation of charging points for electric vehicles. Material costs to install a charging point, such as the cost of a charging box, will be eligible for the grant. Labour costs are eligible under certain restrictions. Grants may be given as a lump sum with an equivalent value up to 50% of the eligible costs, but a maximum of SEK 15,000 (€1,482) per charge point. Grants may not be given for measures that are to be implemented under obligatory requirements. The grant is administered by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
This measure is part of an initiative called 'Klimatklivet' (‘the climate stride’). The initiative aims to reduce emissions that affect the climate. The money invested is expected to provide the greatest possible climate benefit.
In May 2021, 3278 investment applications have been granted as part of the initiative, amounting to a total of SEK 7.3 billion (€0.71 billion) in public funding, i.e. aside from the private funding. Among the 3278 investment applications, 2081 were for charging points. The estimated reduction of emission per invested krona (SEK) (€0.098) is on average 2.02 kilos of carbon dioxide equivalents during the the time when the measures are in effect. The measures on average last for about 16 years.
