The new “zero-emission vehicles” aid scheme under the microscope
As an extension of the tripartite agreement reached on March 31, 2022, the government introduced new aid in April 2023 for companies investing in heavy-duty vehicles (categories N2 and N3) with zero emissions.
This aid is temporary and will be subject to review in the context of the transposition into national law of the new European provisions on State aid.
On the initiative of the Ministry of the Economy, the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Energy, with the support of Luxinnovation, an information webinar for the players involved in this field was organized on Tuesday 13 June from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., in French.
The webinar covered the following points:
- Summary of a study on the different types of zero-emission commercial vehicles, their total cost of ownership (“TCO”) as well as the national and European measures relating to the promotion of these vehicles, presented by the Ministry of Mobility and Public works;
- The details and terms of the new temporary aid for the acquisition of zero-emission heavy-duty vehicles, presented by the Ministry of the Economy;
- A review of the aid scheme for charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, as well as a view of the prospects based on the latest study, presented by the Ministry of Energy and Regional Planning.
This webinar provided as much information as possible on the legal framework as well as on the methods and procedures put in place. A question and answer session was organized at the end of the session.
