According to the tense situation on the electricity markets, Luxembourg’s governement announced a state contribution measure. The measure aims to help households cope with the exceptional increase in electricity prices. The measure will stablise the 2022 average level of electricity prices for residential customers consuming less than 25,000 kWh per year.
This measure applies to EV drivers charging their car at home. It also applies on publicly available charging stations. Indeed, EV drivers can benefit from a price reduction set at 0.35€ (including VAT) per kWh on public charging stations in the country.
As foreseen by the law, Mobility Service Providers (eMSP) wishing to apply the state subsidy to its final users will have to register with the Ministry for Energy and Spatial planning. A dedicated registration form can be found on the website of the Ministry. Registered eMSP will have an obligation to apply the rebate of 33 ct/kWh excl. VAT to all charging operations of their customers on publicly accessible AC and DC charging station in Luxembourg. After the discount is applied, they will receive compensation for the corresponding amount. This will be done through a monthly invoice that will be sent to the Ministry for Energy and Spatial Planning.
The eMSP will also have the obligation to inform his customers of the application of this rebate on each invoice. In addition, an information sheet, provided by the ministry, has to either be annexed to each invoice or to be sent to customers as a one-off communication. The measure will apply automatically from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023. This will provide relief for households affected by the recent increase in electricity prices.
