    Description
    Objectives

    The project concerns the deployment of an electric vehicle charging (EVC) network in Northern Italy and involves the installation of 1 303 charging stations. The charging infrastructure will consist of 326 Fast Chargers (i.e. 50kW) and 977 Quick Chargers (i.e. 22kW).

    This is a sub-operation of the ELECTRO MOBILITY PL ITALY, a programme that aims to support the Promoters'/borrowers' plans for installing infrastructure for electric vehicle mobility across Italy, contributing to the electrification of transport and therefore to pathways towards decarbonisation.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    Electric vehicle charging (EVC) infrastructure is not subject to environmental impact assessments (EIA) under the EIA Directive. However, the construction of greenfield parking locations where the EVC infrastructure is installed and/or the connections to the grid may be screened under Annex II of the said Directive. In such cases, the Bank requires to be informed of the screening decisions issued by the competent authorities. The Bank reviewed the environmental and social capacity of the Promoter including its organisation, processes and procedures, and deemed them to be good.

    The Promoter is an affiliate company with commercial activities sitting outside the regulated activities of the group. The Promoter does not have the status of a contracting authority or a public undertaking within the meaning of the EU Directives and not operating on the basis of special or exclusive rights in the utilities sector as per the Directive 2014/25/EU. Therefore, the Promoter is not subject to the EU Public Procurement Directives and the operation is considered as an operation in the private sector. The Bank has verified that the Promoter will follow suitable procurement procedures, ensuring an appropriate selection of goods and services offered at competitive price and in a timely manner, satisfying the criteria of economy and efficiency.
