An emission-free future in Hamburg
Sustainable, systematic and network-based charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in cities will be one of the biggest challenges in the Energiewende. The City of Hamburg is the pioneer in this area as the location of the largest German model project for charging infrastructure in residential buildings, commercial real estate or commercial areas (eg factory premises or company premises).
Digital Energy Solutions is partner of the city of Hamburg in the project ELBE (Elbe stands for electrification of buildings for electric vehicles) and supports Hamburg companies, operators and investors with its extensive experience in the construction and operation of charging infrastructure.
The opportunity to obtain substantial funding for the construction and operation of charging infrastructure in order to set up a critical mass of charging points distributed throughout the Hamburg city area is realized by the ELBE project through cooperation with the IFB Hamburg, which processes the funding applications.
Prerequisite for the subsidized establishment of the charging points is the connection of the load management with the distribution network operator in Hamburg, so that it can regulate (throttle) the current consumption in the case of short-term network-side demand. In this area too, Digital Energy Solutions can draw on a wealth of experience and thus contribute to security of supply in the Hamburg energy networks.
Overview of the ELBE Project
In Hamburg, up to 7,400 charging stations are to be set up
All charging stations should be network-serviceable and intelligently controlled
Between the distribution system operator and the charging station operators, intelligent IT regulates the network-compatible integration of the charging processes
This ensures the general security of supply
What is being funded?
Broad range of promotions
Four cost categories are funded, each with 40% (for SMEs up to 60%):
How can you receive funding?
Who can apply?
Legal entities and partnerships with location (s) in Hamburg
Employer for employees
Companies, fleet operators for their own fleet
Company for their customer parking
Car park operators
Housing companies, project developers, etc. for their tenants in residential and commercial properties
What is to be considered?
Contractually regulated responsibility of an external operator
Consent that the network operator can regulate the current drain in the event of short-term grid-side demand (charging possible at any time)
Data collection on the loading process during the project period for the purpose of scientific accompanying research

You have the choice: purchase or lease
No matter whether you want to buy or lease the charging stations – in both cases there is support for you.
- At your request, IFB Hamburg can grant you an investment subsidy from federal funds
- Alternatively, you can obtain the services in the leasing via the company Alphabet Fuhrparkmanagement GmbH under subsidized conditions
