Central European Green Corridors - Fast Charging Cross Border Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles, Connecting Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia, Germany and Croatia
This project is driven by the emerging need for decarbonisation and electrification of EU road transport. It includes studies aimed at identifying the preferences and needs of consumers in terms of electric re-charging. 115 high power re-charging points will be deployed in Austria, Croatia, Germany, Slovakia, and Slovenia to create a recharging network with countrywide coverage in Austria, Slovenia and Slovakia and connections from this network to Munich and Zagreb. The network will be fully interoperable and will support customer roaming between the regions covered in the project.
The project will focus on the roll-out of the technologies ready for mass market deployment in the short term (high power re-charging for battery and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles), as well as additional studies examining the preparation required for the roll-out of complementary, mid-term solutions (hydrogen refuelling for fuel cell electric vehicles).
The Action is closed.
EU contribution: €3,562,000
