EU Sustainable Energy Week 2010 with the participation of Günther Oettinger driving a green car fuelled with wind-powered battery, and statement
End production: 25/03/2010 First transmission: 25/03/2010
On 25 March 2010, in the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2010, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, tried a green car produced by the German Energy Company EWE. The car is called "E3" because it serves the idea of energy efficiency, energy conservation and renewable energies: three key points of the 2020 European strategy to tackle climate change. "E3" reaches a speed of 140 km/h and the battery lasts for 170 km: afterwards it can easily be recharged with a normal electric plug for 7 hours or with a 400 voltage plug for 3 hours.
Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
