If you live in the Netherlands and are considering switching to electric driving, you are probably interested in the subsidies available. Fortunately, there are a number of subsidies available that can help you make the switch to electric driving. Below is an overview of some of the subsidies currently available:
Discount on the purchase price of electric vehicles:
The government offers a rebate on the purchase price of electric vehicles through the Electric Driving Subsidy Scheme (ERSA). The amount of the discount depends on the type of vehicle you purchase.
If you drive electric in the Netherlands, you can benefit from lower taxes, such as lower motor vehicle tax and lower additional taxable benefit for business drivers.
Charging infrastructure subsidies:
If you are a business owner or an individual looking to invest in setting up charging points for electric vehicles, you may be eligible for subsidies through the Charging Infrastructure Programme (PLI).
In some cities in the Netherlands, you can benefit from free parking spaces as an electric vehicle owner.
It is important to remember that available subsidies can change, so it is best to regularly inquire about the latest subsidies before making a purchase. There are often specific conditions attached to the subsidies, so it is important to read these carefully before applying.
All Ecotap charging systems are suitable for the OCPP 1.6 json.
This means that this fulfils the conditions for applying for the Environmental Investment Allowance (MIA).
Charging station network in the Netherlands in 2023.
Fortunately, numerous charging stations are already available in the Netherlands, and this number is only expected to increase in the coming years.
There are several parties working to expand the charging station network in the Netherlands, such as the government, energy companies and even municipalities. This means that more and more charging stations will be available, both in cities and along motorways.
It is also important to mention that more and more public charging posts will be available equipped with different types of connections, so that electric vehicles with different types of connections can be charged.
In summary, there are already numerous charging stations available in the Netherlands and this number is only expected to increase in the coming years. Different types of charging stations are available and more and more public charging stations will be equipped with different types of connections.
Targets have been set by the Dutch government regarding the number of charging stations in the country. For instance, the government’s goal is to have at least 400,000 charging points available by 2030, of which at least 200,000 will be fast charging points. This means that more charging points are likely to be installed in the Netherlands in the coming years.
So if you are considering switching to electric driving, you won’t have to worry about finding a charging point on the road!
