New charging stations for electric cars
Slovakia gained assistance for building eight charging stations for electric cars as part of the Central European Ultra Charging project that will support the building of 118 ultra-fast stations in the CEE region by May, 2021. Austrian company Verbund is investing €62m into the project, of which the EU will provide 20%. The project’s Slovak partner is GreenWay, which already has a network of dozens of charging stations in Slovakia.
Back in November 2017, the EU provided €19m for a similar project to support the building of 25 stations in Slovakia.
