On 13 November the Czech Ministry of Transport announced its plan to build by 2021 more than 125 fast-moving electric vehicles, along with regular charging stations, with the aim of creating 500 high-speed stations no later than 2023. The plan foresees the allocation of 130 million crowns (approximately €5,000.000) from European funds to support the set-up of this alternative fuel infrastructure.
Calls for tender have a deadline set on May 4, 2018. As reported by Dan Ťok, the Czech Minister of Transport, “We will select one project from the submitted applications to best meet the required criteria”. Another call to build a backbone network of hotspots will be announced over the next three years. In total, the Ministry of Transport has allocated 1.2 billion crowns for this subsidy program within the OPD (Operational Programme Transport).
