Summary of project results


The entry of Electric Vehicles as a priority transport is a major policy of EU. At the beginning of the project implementation, there were not more than 257 electric vehicles in Bulgaria (manufactured by automakers and converts) and there were only 16 public charging stations installed with 3,7 kW power. At the end of the project implementation the number of electric vehicles in Bulgaria increased to 497 and continues to increase, the number of charging stations is over 57 with power 3,7 kW and 22 kW. Main activities during the project period: - Purchase, delivery and installation of 5 fast charging stations; - Negotiations with petrol stations for providing places for installation of stations and project for electric supply. - Design and realization of construction works. The project outputs are as follows: - 5 fast charging stations installed. The promoter had experienced difficulties to ensure the co-financing of the project (it had not received the full amount of the loan agreed from the creditor). Thus the project resulted in reducing the number of the fast charging stations from 10 to 5 stations; - 4 temporary jobs for Roma people created.
