Renault and Nissan to install 90 new EV chargers in Paris
The 21st annual Conference of Parties (COP21) global summit on climate change will be inspiring a truly exemplary action across Paris. Thanks to the Renaul-Nissan alliance, we will be seeing an installation of up to 90 new EV chargers in Paris. French energy providers EDF, Schneider Electric, Aéroports de Paris, Paris City Council and national railway company SNCF will all be joining hands to make this a possibility. The stations will serve in charging VIP shuttles for dignitaries and media personalities attending the event. The summit will host 20,000 UN participants from across 195 countries between November 30th and December 11th.
Renault-Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn said, “COP21 is a call to action to reduce the impact of climate change, including global warming resulting from personal transportation. EVs 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,” Each station will use renewable energy to charge and power up a car from 0-80 percent in just 30 minutes.
