Challenge / Goal

Charging possibilities are essential for anyone who considers buying an electric vehicle (EV). For private citizens, overnight charging close to home has proven to be the number one choice. Hence, to increase the use of electric vehicles for private usage, it is important to ensure overnight charging possibilities in connection to people’s homes.

The aim of the measure is to inspire and help interested citizens, as well as owners of parking facilities, with facts and practical advice on how to install EV charging facilities in multi-family residencies. The intention is to prompt the installation of charging points in privately owned garages and in parking areas in residential areas of Stockholm.


Most citizens in the city of Stockholm live in multi-family houses and often rent a parking lot in connection to that, which is why this measure also focuses on rental parking spaces.

In this measure, the city of Stockholm has prepared information material on EV charging facilities, which was presented in a series of workshops over the course of 2017 and 2018. It is also available online. 

The informational material includes checklists and step by step practical guides on how to install the facilities, how to apply for the government subsidy for local climate investments (Klimatklivet) and how to handle the administrative work around it. A short informative and thought-provoking film which presents key facts on installing charging facilities in multi-family houses was developed. The material also includes stories from houses already having installed chargers and the exhibition of charging equipment around Stockholm county. The seminars were offered to private households, owners of rental parking spaces and housing associations.  

The activities raised great interest among the targeted stakeholders, with the first seven workshops attended by over 800 people. Housing associations and citizens can use the information material to get their tenants or their housing board interested in EVs, showing that it is neither complicated nor expensive to install a charging facility in the garage. 

The measure has already strengthened the infrastructure needed to make EVs a realistic car choice for people living in multi-family houses. A follow-up survey after the first six seminars revealed that six months later the 200 respondents claimed to have started the process of installing over 1,000 charging units.
