Barcelona, together with Madrid and Seville, is on the cities chosen for the MOVELE project of the IDAE. The aim of this Plan is to introduce the electric vehicle inside urban environments and, to help it grow, offers a series of incentives for the purchase of electric and hybrid pluggable vehicles. Furthermore, the project also funds the creation of pilot network of recharging points. In this context, the collaboration agreement between Barcelona City Council and the IDAE was negotiated from the LIVE platform.

LIVE supports the implementation of demonstrator projects on sustainable mobility together with its associated and collaborating entities. These projects use Barcelona as a test bench to make the most of the knowledge gained from the data and experiences arising from them.

If you want to learn more about these projects, you can see them here.

The Live platform is open to give support and offer alliances between projects and companies related to sustainable mobility.

Catalonia is deploying a wide network of charging points, both public and private.

You can find all the active points and those scheduled in the following map.

The recharging points for electric vehicles are marked with a label to be easily identified.

Thanks to Barcelona City Council, the ICAEN (Catalan Energy Agency) and the IDAE, several incentives are being implemented to promote sustainable mobility. These incentives can be of different nature: aids for the acquisition, discounts in the circulation tax, parking at a 0€ rate in Green Areas and Blue Areas, among others.

The electric vehicle card is an ID for users of electric vehicles in the city of Barcelona. This card offers the possibility of recharging your car using the public network of recharging points on the public road at a €0 rate.

To recharge the vehicle in underground points in municipal public car parks, you do not need to use the card.

To apply for the electric vehicle card of Barcelona, the documents must be sent to the virtual branch of the Barcelona City Council. For any doubt or problem related to the card call 010* or the online helpline of the Barcelona City Council.

For example, the residents in Barcelona that have a 100% electric vehicle can park at a zero euros rate in the preferential green area (not exclusive) or blue area of the city according to the time regulations of each area and as long as the meet the requirements established to obtain the green area resident card.

Barcelona City Council has already started to promote the use of sustainable vehicles in the contracting of cleaning services, traffic lights maintenance, including a minimum of 30% of electric vehicles in the volume of the fleets.
