The time to deal with the electrification of the transport sector is now. Sales of electric cars have completely halted and in response Finland's government has proposed to establish a fund of EUR 100 million, which will be used to provide cash grants to purchasers of electric cars. The goal of the fund is to get 250,000 electric cars on Finnish streets by 2030.
This is all part of Finland's new national energy and climate strategy for 2020-2030, which proposes the aid. This system is already established in Germany, and was similarly proposed by a political party in Denmark this September. However, Denmark has not seen any actual legislation emerge in the area despite initial reports of broad political support.
