There has appeared for the first time support for building hydrogen refueling stations in transport in the Slovak legislation
There is no option for Slovak motorists to use electric cars with hydrogen fuel cells (FCEV) because of a lack of infrastructure of hydrogen refueling stations (HRS) in Slovak Republic. Whilst building of charging points for battery electric cars (BEV) has been supported before hydrogen infrastructure hasn’t that advantage. This may be changed soon.
The Government of the Slovak Republic has approved a document Revision and actualization of National Policy Framework for the Development of Alternative Fuels Market. There is for the first time support for building of hydrogen stations (HRS) in this document. Based on the amendment of the law no. 71/2013 Z. z. on subsidies, The Ministry of Economy introduced a support mechanism for building hydrogen refueling stations where eligible can be municipality, VUC, natural or legal person.
The subsidy may be granted:
a) natural or legal person, up to 75 % from the total eligible costs of the project,
b) municipality or VUC and their organisations, up to 95 % from the total eligible costs of the project.
