State funding for the purchase and installation of wallboxes

All information on the KFW subsidy programme 440

900 euros in state funding for your wallbox? We have dealt inten­si­vely with KFW, asked many questions and evaluated all the forms. Here you will find a clear assess­ment of whether your project is eligible for KFW subsidy 440 - or not. It is important for us to emphasise that we do not want to talk down the funding programme. However, we have come to the conclu­sion that the funding is not suitable for everyone.

The most important thing in advance: 

Before you order a wallbox or commis­sion an instal­la­tion, it is impera­tive that you have submitted your funding appli­ca­tion and have received its approval - not confir­ma­tion of receipt. Otherwise your project cannot be funded!

If both condi­tions are met, we send you an offer in advance, and we will be happy to move forward with the instal­la­tion. And since there is 900 euros available per charging point, we also ascertain whether we can implement a second charging point at your location.

You can apply for funding for your wallbox project on the KFW grant portal in the subsidy programme 440. Click here to access the instruc­tions and the KFW grant portal itself:

A list of all eligible wallboxes and a detailed descrip­tion of the subsidy programme can be found here. Please study this infor­ma­tion carefully, as not every project is eligible.
