Electrification Subsidy Evolution


It has been almost a month since the last official announcement of the government regarding the provision of financial incentives for the acquisition of an electric vehicle. At the same time there is growing interest from potential buyers who have started doing market research.


Developments in the field of e-mobility are rapid and information on subsidies is ongoing.


The Secretary General of Energy and Natural Resources of RIS Alexandra Sdoukou, in frequent interviews and meetings with local agencies shares with the public either information that is already known or new updated information on all developments related to the electricity subsidy that is just around the corner.


According to the latest developments and updates, always from official sources, the public consultation of the bill under completion was completed on July 1, so that the envisaged goal can be achieved which is none other than its vote within the first fortnight of July.

Once the bill is passed, the public will have immediate access to the electronic platform called "I move electrically". The launch of the platform can not be determined with an exact date because the relevant bill "Transition to low-emission mobility: Promotion measures and operation of the electricity market" has not yet been passed. It is worth noting that it will be in the standards of "Saving at Home", ie in order of priority.


This platform will be the electronic way through which interested buyers will be able to take the necessary steps to obtain an electric vehicle such as an electric car, electric motor or electric bicycle with the provided subsidy.


Through the platform "I move electrically" about 10,000 electric vehicles, it is estimated that they will be subsidized for purchase, in the amount of 100 million euros. In particular, it is estimated that about 1,700 electric cars, 1,500 electric bicycles and 1,500 electric scooters and motorcycles will be sold, as well as 1,000 taxis, which will replace the old ones, and about 6,000 new company vehicles.


Also, the subsidy of 15% for the purchase or rental of electric vehicles and light trucks will be made with the program "I move Electric". Similarly, at a rate of 25% for the purchase of electric taxis. These vehicles will be exempt from parking fees for two years and will be able to move freely in the ring. In addition, charging costs will be tax deductible. As for the companies that will choose for their transport needs electric vehicles or hybrid plug-ins, 50% will be deducted from the corporate expenses, while in the islands the percentage goes up to 70% for purchase.
