Spain submitted its recovery and resilience plan in April 2021 to the European Commission.
Within the first pillar of the plan, one component relates to sustainable mobility in urban areas. The measure is composed of the following initiatives:
- Plan for the development of charging infrastructure and promotion of electric vehicles
- Law of sustainable mobility and transportation financing
- Creation of low-emissions zones and digital & sustainable transformation of urban mobility: includes incentives for low-carbon vehicles.
- Incentives plan for the installation of public & private charging points, purchase of electric vehicles and fuel cells, and the promotion of innovative projects related to electric mobility, charging and green hydrogen.
- Actions to improve the quality and reliability of public transport services.
Overall, these measures are expected to reach EUR 6.536 billion by 2023.
EUR 1 billion were awarded in 2022 to 170 municipalities and 2 supra-municipal entities.
In April 2022, an additional budget of EUR 125 million was allocated from the Incentive Program for Efficient and Sustainable Mobility (MOVES III) to promote electric mobility in Catalonia, the Community of Madrid, Castilla y León and the Balearic Islands, at subnational authorities' request.
