News on environmental zones and air pollution
In a joint press release, the German Ministries of Environment, Nature Conservation, Construction and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and Economy and Energy (BMWi) announced that the funding guidelines for alternative propulsion systems would be simplified. The approval procedure is thus to be simplified and made faster to implement. Municipalities and commercial companies can profit from the subsidies on low-pollutant vehicle fleets. As a second pillar, the network of charging infrastructure will also be expanded. Here, depots, multi-storey car parks and similar facilities can apply for subsidies.
