the Federal transport Minister, Andreas Scheuer (CSU) is calling for an additional billion Euro funding for the development of private charging points for electric cars in residential and commercial buildings. According to the Ministry, the owner of an E-car charging of your vehicle to 75 to 85 per cent at home or in the workplace. Therefore, the state should take on Expansion of private and commercial charging stations up to 50 percent of the cost. Up to 3000 Euro, it should be for installation and grid connection, for fast-charging points, it would be more. This sounds like a thirst for action in climate protection – but without the participation of other ministries is not feasible or meaningful.
The billion the Federal Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz (SPD) would have to make in the Cabinet in the vertices of budget to be adopted in 2020, in addition to loose. Scholz has signaled his willingness to the promotion of electric mobility up to the year 2030 to expand – for example, tax incentives for climate-car-friendly service. Of Scheuers current plans, as he was not yet of speech.
more Importantly, The Federal government would have to dismantle the Central legal and bureaucratic barriers to the rapid Expansion of private charging infrastructure in Parking garages or in Parking lots. Your will has expressed them several times, but the mills of legislation grind.
Barley, Altmaier and Seehofer are also involved
So the already long - planned and in the coalition agreement promised Reform of the rental and residential property law (WAY) would have to be implemented. Here there is, as yet, only a draft law, the discussion draft are already two years old. The Reform falls into the jurisdiction of the Minister of justice Katarina Barley (SPD). In addition, the amended provisions of the in the summer of 2018 by the EU-Parliament agreed to the efficiency of buildings Directive is not to be found in national law.
The Changes are significant for the construction and basic renovation of buildings. The Federal building Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) and Minister for economic Affairs, Peter Altmaier (CDU), initiated the building of energy law there is as yet only in draft form.
The WAY the Reform is important because the build-up of a private charging points fails, in many cases, the fact that tenants and owners in multi-family are not able to some of the houses with their owners or co-owners. Often, it is not only the Installation of a Wallbox in the garage wall, but also to new, powerful lines, and other structural changes. The consent of all is necessary, however, if charging points to be installed in the underground Parking garage, or other Parking spaces.
potential for disputes in the house communities
communities, Especially in a house with condominiums that is a Problem. "It comes to interventions and restrictions of the right to property, should be no quick shot", established procedures, a spokesman for the Minister of justice, the long legislation. In addition, the coalition agreement, the SPD and the Union have agreed to reform the WAY only with regard to electro-mobility. In addition, the law should also facilitate "structural measures, in particular in the areas of accessibility, energy-saving renovation and burglary protection". "The advantage is that everyone can sit at the table and join the conversation," says the Ministry spokesman.
The disadvantage is that it takes. After Bayern had presented a discussion draft to the PATH of Reform, the law is a matter for the Federal government, was established in the summer of 2018, a Federal-Länder working group. When it comes to concrete results, remains open. "Promptly", - stated in the Ministry. Minister of justice Barley left it on Monday with an announcement: The Ministry will create statutory regulations for the installation of charging stations, she said.A charging station for green electricity at the Hannover Messe.Photo: dpa
"The installation of charging columns must not fail in complicated rules in the law of property", added the SPD politician. The Greens criticise the fact that the Federal Council had already decided in December 2017 at the request of Hesse a bill again, have not found their way in the Bundestag.
"So the prospect of funding funds can be used, you must ensure that every tenant and property owner can install a charging station, if he wants it, and the funding," said the chief Executive of the Federal Association of energy and water industries (BDEW), Stefan Kapferer.
the cities President Markus Lewe has called on the German government on Tuesday to intensify their efforts at the Expansion of the charging infrastructure for electric cars. The cities are gone with the previous construction of publicly accessible charging points already in advance, said the mayor of the city of Münster. To keep pace with the expected increase in the sale of electric vehicles, a step that would have to be installed on other charging options. He says, in addition to private charging stations and charging facilities for public TRANSPORT, new electric buses, and municipal fleets should be encouraged.
Federal government needs to EU law
to enforce If an additional funding of the charging infrastructure in the commercial sector to pay off, you must have implemented the Federal government at the latest until the beginning of 2020, the new EU legislation on energy efficiency in Buildings. You must then be constructed in non-residential buildings with more than ten Parking spaces newly constructed or extensive renovated, in 2030 at least one charging station.
in addition, every fifth Parking space must be equipped with the appropriate pre-wiring, which allows the subsequent installation of charging stations for all of the Parking spaces. If to pay an additional funding of the charging infrastructure really needs to have been implemented by the government at the latest until the beginning of 2020, the new EU legislation on energy efficiency in Buildings. Thereafter, the electric mobility to be integrated in new and renovated buildings.
must be in accordance with the Directive, for example, in new non-residential buildings with more than ten Parking spaces newly constructed or extensive renovated, in 2030 at least one charging station built. In addition, every fifth Parking space must be equipped with the appropriate pre-wiring, which allows the subsequent installation of charging stations for all of the Parking spaces.
