The overall objective of the project was to foster Electric Vehicle (EV) deployment in France within a short timeframe. It developed an understanding of all technological, environmental and end user requirements to enable the viability of an interoperable fast charging network in France and in Europe. There were three specific objectives, namely to:
The consolidated results of the project were widely disseminated at national and European levels. They will provide a roadmap for France, and possibly other Member States, and support decision-making on nationwide roll-outs of EV infrastructure.
The Action was successfully completed although there was a variance between the number of stations deployed as part of the pilot network of charging facilities by the end of the Action. 181 stations out of 200 were installed and 171 were in operation by mid-September 2016. A national network of interoperable fast charging stations, promoting electromobility among consumers, and a sustainable fast charging service are now available for all EV users.
The action is closed.
