Portugal commits to promote electric mobility by improving the existing charging infrastructure network and increasing the number of charging stations. Portugal will also adopt new legislation addressing the market of electricity distribution for transport use and give different kinds of incentives to electric vehicles acquisition and use by transport operators and by individuals. The country will promote the renewal of the transport fleet of the Public Administration with electric vehicles and complete the regulatory framework of electric mobility.
The commitment falls under focus areas 4, 5, and 8 of the Batumi Initiative to shift consumer behaviours towards more sustainable consumption patterns; develop clean physical capital for sustainable production patterns; and improve access to service, healthy living and well-being.
Implementing partners include energy sector decision makers and public administration entities.
The commitment is relevant to SDG 3, 9, 11, and 13.
