Portugal to ‘reinforce support to families to buy electric bicycles’

Portugal’s Fundo Ambiental (Environmental Fund) is to triple its budget this year for the purchase of electric bicycles. Explain reports, the budget is going from €400,000 to €1.1 million – and there will be another €50,000 available for the purchase of conventional bicycles. Candidacies open this week and will apply to bicycles bought since January. Support will run to 20% of the value of purchase, up to €100.
