GROHAG focusses on electric mobility The sensitive treatment of nature and thus the promotion of electromobility are central concerns of Grossglockner Hochalpenstrassen AG (GROHAG), the operating company of the Nockalm Road and other adventure roads in Austria.

First E-charging stations open on the Nockalm Road 


The future of e-mobility is finding its way into Carinthia’s Nockalm Road too – with the first two E-charging stations in Biosphere Reserve Center Nockalmhof (1700 m) and on the Zechneralm (1900 m), the first, key steps towards expanding e-mobility have been taken. A clear sign to everyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of the Nockberge Biosphere Reserve and e-mobility. And in so doing, make a valuable contribution to protecting and preserving the delicate natural area.  

Glockner ePower charging prices

Charging at the charging stations along the Nockalm Road is free of charge. Our charging tariffs for the e-charging stations outside the toll areas:

  • normal charging station: 0.49 €/kWh
  • fast charging station: 0.59 €/kWh
    (credit or debit card, or several charging cards)
  • The maximum free parking time is 90 minutes for the fast charging station (120 kW) and 180 minutes for the normal charging station (22 kW). After that, € 0.10/min. charged as a standing fee. 

You can find our terms and conditions for the e-charging stations here!

Consistent charging safety on Austria's most beautiful panoramic roads & excursion destinations The Glockner ePower charging points along the Nockalm Road guarantee you continuous charging security. You can find all charging points on our interactive map:

Mobility turning point with Glockner e-power 

Our society is the midst of a mobility and energy turning point. Electromobility has gained traction, especially in the past few years. In 2022, the EU has opted for a ban on combustion engines in cars and light commercial vehicles by 2035. An expansion of the charging infrastructure must go hand-in-hand with this focus on E-mobility. And it is with this reasoning in mind that GROHAG, together with its  regional partners, is investing in the expansion of the charging infrastructure on its experience roads, and in its own clean, regional ePower.

GROHAG: Pioneering role in E-mobility

With an intensive expansion of the charging infrastructure, with up to 100% green electricity, from renewable energy sources, the tourist offer provided by the Grossglockner E-pleasure tour along the Grossglockner High Alpine Road and through the Hohe Tauern National Park and also with the establishment of a GROHAG-E-fleet as well as discounted tariffs for E-cars and E-motorbikes of course, GROHAG is taking on a real pioneering role in terms of E-mobility.

Driving up the mountain in an E-car is the purest of pleasures – step on the gas and enjoy full power, with no hesitation! This is relaxing uphill cruising! And listen to that silence!

Plan your trip so you get to the top of the mountain with around 20-30 % charge, then let your E-car battery recharge on the downhill. Wholly in keeping with the maxim: producing energy, instead of using it. That’s sustainability!

The battery in your E-car recharges on the downhill, this is known as recuperation – that is, the moving vehicle’s kinetic energy is recovered. Put another way, instead of braking process creating heat as it does in a combustion engion, an electric car effectively turns the braking energy into electricity, using this energy to recharge the battery. Thus the engine becomes an electricity generator.

A nice ancillary effect as you head downhill, when the battery is somewhat empty after having driven uphill, is that you have to brake a little less too, since recuperation acts like an engine brake.

Since air is not a factor in the drive system of an electric car, the increasingly thin altitude air has no impact on performance, which is the case with a combustion engine for instance.
