During the Digital Transport Day in Tallinn, partners of the NEXT-E consortium signed a grant agreement with INEA which will enable the building of a charging network for EVs across six countries in Central and Eastern Europe: The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and Romania.

In July 2017, the NEXT-E project was selected by the European Commission for co-financing through the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The NEXT-E consortium will be granted 18.84 million Euro to implement the project, which is the largest CEF grant ever awarded to an EV project.

Within the framework of this project, the consortium will install 222 multi-standard fast chargers (50 kW) and 30 ultra-chargers (150-350 kW) along TEN-T core corridors and core network. For the first time ever, long distance travel, based 100% on electricity, will be possible across 6 Cohesion countries, with connection to the neighbouring countries.

The consortium consists of companies of E.ON Group (Zapadoslovenska energetika in Slovakia, E.ON Czech Republic, E.ON Hungary, E. ON Romania), MOL Group (represented with subsidiaries in all 6 participating countries), Hrvatska elektroprivreda in Croatia, PETROL (in Slovenia and Croatia), as well as Nissan and BMW.
