Paris to get 90 new charging points ahead of COP21 summit

The project links the Renault-Nissan Alliance, which is supplying a fleet of 200 electric vehicles as shuttles for delegates, with French energy supplier EDF, which is providing low-carbon electricity, and Schneider Electric, which will donate several of the charging points.

Aéroports deParis, Paris City Council and French railway company SNCF are also partners.

Renault-Nissan Chairman and CEO, Carlos Ghosn, said: "Electric vehicles are the only existing, practical and affordable transportation solution to our planet's environmental challenges – and they are available today. Expanding the EV infrastructure is mandatory for any city or state that's serious about environmental stewardship."
