“Every year the number of electric cars in Ukraine grows non-stop. I am convinced that our transport future is precisely behind electric cars. For our part, we support and promote the use of environmentally friendly modes of transport — both public electric and electric vehicles. In order to popularize them on a global scale, it is necessary to create, first of all, a developed charging infrastructure system that would allow electric car owners to move comfortably both in the city and intercity", — commented Minister of Infrastructure Vladislav Krikliy.
The British engineering firm “Atkins”, which provides consulting services to UBRD, has formed a team of six specialists in electronic mobility, financial and transport modeling.
"The project will help to adapt Ukraine’s infrastructure to global transport market trends. World automobile manufacturers are massively increasing the share of electric cars, some are planning to switch completely to electric transport by 2030, as its use is consistent with the environmental and energy challenges of the world. Within the framework of "Big construction", we have separate projects on the development of roadside infrastructure, improvement of traffic safety level, new road navigation, which will be integrated into the project of e-mobility", — shared head of Ukrautoroad Alexander Kubrakov.
As is known, in December 2020, the EBRD invested € 450 million in Ukraine for the development of the joint project "Development of the trans-European transport network". The Agreement comprises four areas of development and transformation:
- Procurement reform
- Improving traffic safety
- Development of infrastructure for electric transport
- Anti-corruption reform
