Description Innovation policy strives to support the creation and dissemination of innovation. For this purpose, it mainly uses tools that stimulate innovation supply, but in recent years, it has also increasingly implemented demand-oriented tools such as public procurement, support for private demand and regulation. The innovation policy defined in this way pursues not only economic goals but also the fulfillment of various societal challenges. Therefore, it is often associated with the promotion of environmental innovations that lead to green growth and climate change mitigation. In this context, electromobility is significantly promoted in European countries. The aim of the paper is to demonstrate the possibilities of linking cohesion policy and demand-side innovation policy, and to analyse the practical implementation of such a policy in the Czech regions. The analysis incorporates 519 projects supported through the Low Carbon Technologies programme within the OP EIC 2014-2020. More than 50% of projects were implemented in the three most populated regions, namely the South Moravian, Central Bohemian and Moravia-Silesian regions. These regions also accounted for more than half of the EU subsidy. The most frequent beneficiaries by legal form were micro and small enterprises. A significant group also consists of self employed persons, which represented 21.8 % of beneficiaries.
