The project concerns the deployment of an electric vehicle charging (EVC) network in Portugal and Spain, and involves the installation of 5,500 charging points. The charging infrastructure will consist of slow/normal charging stations as well as fast and super-fast chargers.
The project supports a wide range of policies at EU, national and city level. It will accelerate the deployment of alternative fuel infrastructure for transport and contribute to reach the EU ambition of one million public recharging and refuelling stations deployed by 2025 on European roads. The project is expected to significantly contribute to cleaner and lower-carbon road transport, thereby supporting the overall EU ambition to reduce transport related CO2 emissions by 90% by 2050 compared to 1990, in line with the Paris Agreement, the EU Low-Emission Mobility Strategy (2016) and recent European Green Deal announced in December 2019. In addition, the project will also contribute to the EIB's cross-cutting policy objectives of Climate Action and Cohesion.

EVC infrastructure is not subject to environmental impact assessment under the EIA Directive (Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on environment). 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 competent authority for environmental matters in Portugal is the Portuguese Environmental Agency (Agencia Portuguesa do Ambiente). In Spain, each region has its own competent authority.
