BENEFIC is an innovative cross-border project for the development of charging and refuelling infrastructure for alternative fuels for transport. It includes the following categories: charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, electric taxis and electric buses, CNG and LNG infrastructure, hydrogen refuelling infrastructure and shore-side electricity for inland navigation. BENEFIC is funded by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme of the European Union. Through open calls for projects for public and private parties, infrastructure projects are selected and funded. Two project calls have already been launched in 2018. Discover the selected projects here.
A 3rd project call is currently running with an available grant budget of €1.6 million. The focus of this 3rd call is on normal, fast and ultra fast chargers for electric vehicles and shore power installations for inland navigation. Contrary to the previous calls, this 3rd call is only aimed at a roll-out of projects in the Brussels Capital Region and Flanders. See here for more information on the 3rd call for projects.
