Expansion of Monaco On

Under the authority of Céline Caron-Dagioni, Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development, self-service charging points in the public car parks and on the streets of the Principality are being replaced by electric charging stations which incorporate several points offering quicker and more powerful charging. The Monaco On network is making the charging of electric vehicles ever more efficient, accessible and available for as many people as possible.

Eco-friendly vehicles which do not produce any noise, pollution or greenhouse gases are particularly well-suited to urban areas like the Principality. They currently account for more than 11% of registered vehicles. With this in mind, the Prince’s Government is continuing to expand the network of Monaco On charging points, which have been available for two years and remain free.

The Department of Urban Amenities has installed 21 charging points on the streets in one year, meaning that there are now more than 30 available. Every Monegasque resident is now less than 250 metres from a free public charging point. The plans for 2022 will reduce this even further. The network is becoming stronger, and the new charging points have been installed close to shops, in very busy areas and in districts which have been underserved until now. It’s an effective approach when you consider that one on-street charging point can be used for up to 16 charges a day.

In addition, the Public Car Parks Office has already equipped 14 facilities (a figure which will go up to 17 by the end of 2022), where the excellent turnover rate of the nearly 200 charging points illustrates their success.

Monaco On provided nearly 120,000 charges in 2021!

It is worth noting that 2021 was a particularly good year for electric transport. In August 2020, electric and hybrid models accounted for nearly 7% of all vehicles in Monaco. This had risen to 9.78% in August 2021 and to 10.9% by the end of the year.

Finally, it’s important to remember that users need to be considerate when using these facilities. This means vacating the space once the battery has been sufficiently charged, to avoid monopolising the charging points.

Spaces dedicated for charging electric vehicles should not be viewed as parking spaces. The aim of achieving the best turnover rate on the charging points must be pursued with support from everyone.

Since 1994, the Prince’s Government has followed a policy that strongly incentivises a switch to electric vehicles (subsidies to help purchase such vehicles, free charging, a reduction on the cost of public car park season tickets, free on-street parking and a free annual vehicle registration sticker, the right infrastructure, etc.).

Monaco On offers:
Nearly 200 charging points in 14 public car parks
More than 30 on-street charging points (each with a capacity of 2 vehicles)
Nearly 120,000 charges completed in 2021
