What tenders does the German market offer to drive the eMobility transition?

With the goal of reinforcing their commitment to promoting sustainable mobility, German companies and entities allocate thousands of euros through tenders. Below, Mobility Portal Europe compiles the latest calls announced.

Despite the decline in registrations in the German electromobility market, mainly due to the removal of incentives, the sector continues to champion clean emissions-free transport.

Germany persists to position itself as one of the leading countries in this transition.

In this process, the construction of recharging infrastructure and the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) play a fundamental role, mainly to meet the target of one million chargers and 15 million EVs by 2030.

Therefore, various national entities and companies have launched tenders to continue driving this deployment.

Below, Mobility Portal Europe presents a summary of the most recent offers launched.
