Budapest, December 13, 2016 (MTI-ECONEWS) – The National Economy Ministry (NGM) and the Budapest Municipal Council on Tuesday signed a cooperation agreement to set up 250 electronic vehicle charging stations in the capital.
The municipal council will provide the free parking spaces and room for the EV charging stations and the NGM will offer 1.9 million euros of non-refundable grants out of its dedicated programme for municipalities.
Around 250 charging stations could be set up to service 500 vehicles.
The cooperation agreement is tied to the government’s Jedlik Ányos Plan, a blueprint for the regulatory and support framework required for popularising electromobility.
