Italy has set the goal of having 110,000 public electric vehicle charging points by 2030.

As of August 2023, the country has 45,210 of these, which means it will need to double the current number.

According to data from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, nearly 75% of charging points in Italy are fast accelerated charging, 10.7% are slow, 8.3% are ultra-fast, and 6.2% are fast.

They are distributed across 677 locations, primarily in urban areas and shopping centers.

However, domestic charging predominates in Italy, with 400,000 installations and a 700% growth in two years.

EV owners prefer to charge them at home, as it is the most convenient and cost-effective option.

The installation of residential stations is benefiting from the Superbonus for building rehabilitation.

Through it, it is possible to finance the installation of residential charging stations.

The overall funding amounts to 90% of expenses through tax reductions over 10 years.

The benefit applies to single-family buildings, amounting to 2,000 euros; 1,500 euros for multi-family buildings and condominiums with up to a maximum of eight columns; and 1,200 euros for multi-family buildings and condominiums installing more than eight columns.

Furthermore, incentives are also applied to the installation of charging stations in small and medium-sized enterprises.

This entails a contribution of up to 30,000 euros for the installation of the device and up to 100,000 euros for the accumulator.

A total of 1 billion euros is allocated for these purposes.

This incentive expires on October 12th of this year.

Up to 1.5 million euros are also disbursed for photovoltaic systems dedicated to agricultural and agri-food companies.
