France Passes Law To Encourage More Charging Station Installs
French Parliament adopted in July a new law that encourages the installation of new charging points.
As part of the program, companies that install charging infrastructure will pay reduced taxes.
Today, there is more than 10,000 charging spots available In France, from which several thousand were built by Autolib in Paris.
We don’t know how much the tax cuts will help, however the French government would like to push the total number of stations to 7 million by 2030, so we assume that this incentive will be needed to drive this growth.
The 36,000 or so EVs currently registered in France don’t need 7 million charging points, so it’s understood that the number of EVs are expected to increase into the millions too at some point in time.
