China to continue offering subsidies for charging facility construction

BEIJING – China’s central government will continue to give subsidies on EV charging facility construction, according to a draft plan released for public opinion by five Chinese government departments on December 15, 2015.

The plan is designed to stimulate the expansion of electric car charging facilities across the country in 2016-2020.

Subsidies from the central government to local governments through promoting new energy vehicles (NEVs) should be used in charging facility construction, operation and upgrading, according to the draft plan.

As stated in the draft plan, provinces and municipalities are entitled to receive rewards from the top authority, and the higher their NEV sales figures, the larger the rewards.

In 2016, provinces and municipalities which are facing severe air pollution will get ¥90 million ($13.9 million) of financial rewards if they meet a minimum requirement of selling more than 30,000 NEVs and the NEV sales account for at least 3 percent of newly added vehicles in the areas. The provinces and municipalities include Hebei, Shanxi, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong, Guangdong, Hainan, Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. In addition, the central government will provide a special bonus of ¥7.5 million for every 2,500 units of increased sales. The reward ceiling is ¥120 million in 2016.

Both minimum sales requirements and the reward ceiling will grow annually. In 2020, the minimum sales will grow to 70,000 units and the reward will increase to ¥126 million. The bonus will be ¥11 million for every 6,000 units of increased sales and the reward cap will rise to ¥200 million in 2020.

The financial rewards are not allowed to go to subsidies for purchasing NEVs or operating electric car businesses, according to the draft plan.
