The GEIG
Opportunities from  the legal regulations 

Electromobility is growing rapidly and is changing the way people move. Electric vehicles are environmentally friendly and resource-saving, which is why their popularity is constantly increasing. For real estate owners, however, there is the challenge of providing sufficient charging infrastructure.

The Building Electromobility Infrastructure Act (GEIG), which came into force on March 25, 2021, now stipulates the obligation for electromobility at locations. This obligation may initially seem like a burden, but it offers property owners a chance to future-proof their properties and reap the benefits of electric mobility.

The integration of charging stations makes residential and commercial properties more attractive to potential tenants or buyers and opens up the opportunity for owners to generate additional income by renting parking spaces to professional operators. In order to make this process successful, it is advisable to involve an experienced broker with industry knowledge, an extensive network and negotiating skills in electromobility.

 

By working with such an agent, property owners can save time and effort while the agent effectively represents their interests and increases the value of their property. It is therefore advisable to commission a professional partner with experience in electromobility to market parking areas for fast charging infrastructure.

Challenges & opportunities for real estate owners

The GEIG is a key measure to promote e-mobility in Germany and make an important contribution to climate protection. By requiring property owners to install building-integrated charging stations, the law creates incentives for the electrification of transport. The increased use of electric vehicles can reduce CO2 emissions and improve air quality in cities.
 

Step up the challenge

The GEIG puts real estate owners under pressure to act. The increasing number of electric vehicles requires a nationwide charging infrastructure that can keep up with demand. Without sufficient charging stations, real estate faces a serious competitive disadvantage. Potential tenants or buyers will increasingly look for properties that are already equipped with charging options. So there is a real risk that real estate will become less attractive and therefore less valuable. In addition, the GEIG imposes the legal obligation on property owners to create a building-integrated charging and line infrastructure for electromobility. Time is of the essence and action is inevitable.

Recognize the opportunity

Despite the challenges that GEIG brings with it, property owners should not overlook the opportunity presented to them. By investing in e-mobility infrastructure early on, they can gain a competitive advantage and make their properties more attractive. The demand for charging stations will continue to increase, and properties with a well-developed charging infrastructure will be preferred. This opens up the possibility for real estate owners to increase the value of their real estate in the long term and to make long-term investments.

By renting parking spaces for fast charging infrastructure, the requirements of the GEIG and tenant requirements can be met. This offers real estate owners the opportunity to generate secure additional rental income without making their own investments or taking risks. By renting out your parking spaces to charging station operators, you benefit from the growing demand for electric mobility and offer your tenants added value.

The advantages at a glance:

  • Secure additional rental income without financial risks

  • No investments required, the operator takes care of the infrastructure

  • Part of a growing market with increasing demand

  • Flexibility and scalability as needed


Conclusion: The Building Electromobility Infrastructure Act (GEIG) poses a challenge to real estate owners, but at the same time it also offers an opportunity to make their real estate future-proof and to benefit from the advantages of electromobility. The obligation to provide charging stations may seem like a constraint at first, but it allows property owners to make their properties more attractive and generate long-term income. Electromobility is unstoppable and those who act early will benefit from the positive developments. Be part of this change and seize the opportunity that GEIG offers to prepare your property for the mobility of the future.
