Fast-E project to install 278 chargers in Europe
The project aims to install a total of 278 charging points 80 km apart along Germany and Belgium’s main motorways by the end of 2016 – with 241 in Germany and 37 in Belgium. The multi-standard fast-chargers have AC and DC connections.
The project is being co-financed by the European Union and nine companies, including Renault and Nissan Europe, with a total investment of approximately €18m.
A sister project in the Czech Republic and Slovakia will add another 30 charging points.
Gareth Dunsmore, director of electric vehicles for Nissan Europe, said: “It is fantastic to have the backing of the EU on this project, which should drastically improve the number of EV charging facilities across Germany and Belgium’s main motorways.”For more of the latest industry news, click here.
