Grants

Klimatklivet, for charging infrastructure

Complete solutions for businesses of all sizes

Klimatklivet is a subsidy that makes it possible to invest in fossil-free fuel. It can be applied for by companies, municipalities, regions and organizations in Sweden. It can be time-consuming and complicated to apply, so we help you with the application throughout the process. Since the start of Klimatklivets, we have seen record figures every year. Electrically powered traffic is becoming more common, and with that, charging solutions must keep pace for the charging infrastructure to last.

Support for charging stations

With Naturvårdsverkets initiative Klimatklivet you have the opportunity to receive up to 70% of the investment cost in support for charging solutions. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's goal is for every krona invested to have the greatest impact on improving our climate. The result since the start of Klimatklivet has been a reduction of 2.6 million tons of CO2e/year.

Different types of charging

There are a number of ways to apply for grants for charging infrastructure from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. The application process is slightly different depending on the type of charging infrastructure you plan to build. See below which category you can apply in for your particular project.

Public AC & DC

Naturvårdsverket can offer support for charging stations where there is a geographical need for more. Up to 70% of the investment can be given in support of a project in public AC & DC. There are different criteria for three different subcategories in public AC & DC.

DC – Heavy Vehicles

  • Within 3km of a major road
  • At least 350 kW (175 power distributed)
  • At least 4 charging points

DC – Light vehicles

  • Within 3 km of a major road or within an urban area
  • At least 150 kW (75 power distributed)
  • At least 4 charging points

AC – Light vehicles

  • Within urban areas according to the Klimatklivet's mapping tool
  • 10-50 kW
  • At least 5 charging points

Dates to keep track of

  • Ansökningsperiod 20 januari – 7 februari 2025


The processing time for applications is 2-4 months

Non-public DC

Non-public DC is aimed at trucks, buses and boats. However, the project must not fulfill the conditions for a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency's other grants"Ladda bilen”. 

If necessary, energy storage can also count towards the project's investment support, with the criteria that it complements the power supply via the grid and is installed to maintain power to the charging station.

In order to apply for support for a project in non-public DC, evidence for an emission calculation is needed. Such a basis requires information such as the fuel being replaced, fuel consumption, mileage, expected use of the charging station and evidence to support these assumptions.

The share of the aid depends on the size of the company.

  • At most 20% for large companies
  • At most 40% for medium-sized companies
  • At most 50% for smaller companies

Dates to keep track of

  • Ansökningsperiod 1 = 3 juni – 11 juni 2024
  • Ansökningsperiod 2 = 1 nov – 8 nov 2024
     

The processing time for applications is 2-4 months

Non-public DC

The Environmental Protection Agency has a separate grant for charging stations at homes and workplaces called "Ladda bilen. The grant can be applied for by organizations that want to provide electric vehicle charging for residents and employees.

Up to 50% of the investment can be supported for apartment buildings or offices, with a maximum of SEK 15,000 per charging point. The grant can cover costs such as labor, materials, excavation, installation and the like. However, the grant cannot be distributed to private individuals and cannot go to charging stations intended for the public or charging stations that must be installed according to law, other regulations or conditions in permits.
