Call for projects for publicly accessible charging infrastructure
Within the policy framework ‘Clean Power for Transport’, the Flemish government is launching a call for projects on ‘public charging infrastructure on private domain’.
You can submit a project proposal via the application form until November 10, 2023.
What types of projects are eligible?
The subsidy focuses on projects for the rollout of public charging infrastructure for normal and high power for electric passenger cars and vans. This on private property or in parking buildings that belong to the public domain.
Only projects that are realized in the Flemish Region after the close of the call are eligible.
Only the costs incurred after the notification of the selection are eligible for the calculation of the project subsidies.
Costs incurred and payments made before notification of the selection cannot be charged in any way. Preparatory steps, such as applying for a permit or permission, can already be taken.
The projects have a maximum duration of 2 years, starting from the notification of the selection of the project.
What are the conditions?
The charging points are publicly accessible 24 hours a day.
All electric vehicle users can charge there via an ad hoc charging option, without having to conclude a contract with the electricity supplier or operator concerned,
by means of at least one of the following electronic payment methods:
payment card readers;
contactless payment equipment that is at least capable of reading payment cards;
equipment with an internet connection and the possibility of a secure payment transaction, which, for example, generates a specific QR code.
The principles of interoperability with regard to operations and market-based prices are respected.
The poles are supplied with green energy.
The static and dynamic information about the charging points is shared through management systems that enable digital data exchange.
Projects that receive other subsidies or for which a subsidy application is pending are not eligible.
Only projects that comply with the provisions of Articles 4 and 5 of the ministerial decree are eligible for support.
The maximum subsidy per project is 300,000 euros. This allows investments to be reimbursed for the installation and smart connection of charging infrastructure. This is done at 10% of the costs with a maximum of 500 euros per realized charge point equivalent (CPE). If the charging infrastructure is operational on May 31, 2024, the compensation will be increased to 20% with a maximum of 1,000 euros per CPE.
In car parks in or on buildings or places without a public function, a maximum of 20 charging points or charging points on 20% of the parking spaces can be registered for a subsidy per location.
How are the CPEs determined?
A charging station with a limited capacity (3-11 kW) corresponds to 1 CPE. At a charging station with a higher power (22kW) these are 2 CPE, at an AC fast charging point (43 kW) these are 4 CPE, at a DC fast charging point (50 kW to less than 150 kW) these are 5 CPE and at a ultra-fast charging point (150 kW and more) is 10 CPE. A 300 kW charging station counts for 20 CPE.
If there are multiple charging points at one charging station for fast chargers, the number of CPE per point counts, but only for those points that can be charged simultaneously and for which parking space is also provided. The peak power of the charging station is also taken into account (e.g. a 300 kW ultra-fast charger with two 150 kW charging points counts for 20 CPE).
Charging stations that are accessible less than 24 hours a day are not eligible for support.

As of 11 March 2021, it is compulsory to provide charging stations at certain new buildings in Flanders. Article 9/1.1.1. of the Energy Decree of 19 November 2010 states that certain buildings and parking areas for which an environmental permit is requested must have charging stations installed as of 11 March 2021.
The new legislation also imposes requirements on existing buildings where no environmental permit has been applied for. By 1 January 2025, companies with more than 20 parking spaces, among others, will have to install at least two charging stations for their employees or visitors, either AC or DC chargers.
More information about the requirements for charging points in parking areas can be found below
Daarnaast komt er vanaf 2025 een verplichting om opladers te plaatsten op parkings van bestaande, niet-residentiele gebouwen. Dit gaat over gebouwen zonder dat er een omgevingsvergunning is aangevraagd.
Daarom geeft de regering nu in Vlaanderen mooie subsidies om de mensen te stimuleren een laadpaal aan te schaffen voor thuis of op hun bedrijf.
The difference with Flanders is that from 11 March 2021 onwards you must install a charger on every parking area and this applies to parking lots with 11 or more parking spots.
For non-residential car parks such as shops, offices, industrial premises, schools, etc., the parking spaces in Wallonia must be equipped with at least one charger and the cables must be laid in order to be able to install a charger for at least 1 in 5 parking spaces in the future.
The rule for installing chargers in non-residential buildings with more than 20 parking spaces as of 2025 is still to be determined.
Specific rules apply to parking lots with at least 10 parking spaces and to new or old parking lots.
If you prefer, we can discuss this in a personal meeting with you.
For those who are looking to install a charging station at home, it is important to first consider where you are going to install the charger – indoors or outdoors? If it is installed indoors, then it is not a problem, but if it is installed outdoors, then it must have a high IP value and be able to withstand all types of weather. The latter also applies to companies that want to charge at their buildings or in the parking lot. If it is a car park where a wall installation is not possible, you will need to purchase an installation pole so that the charger can be installed as a ‘stand alone’ station.
Also important is the distance from the fuse box to the charger. For home use we recommend to place the charger no more than 5 metres from the fuse box. That way, you can also keep the cost of the cables down. If this is not possible, you will have to use a thicker cable, which will make the installation a lot more expensive.
Another important factor is the electricity grid that you have at your disposal, e.g. single or three-phase, 16A or 32A, etc. Therefore, it is important to buy the right charger, depending on the power supply in your home or business.
At Q. EV. Solutions and distributions, we have certified technicians who will do the installation for you. Be sure to take a look at our page about installation locations, where you can find all the necessary information and prices
