Tomorrow it is time for the GREAT Midterm Conference in Copenhagen and we would like to take the opportunity to share some of the progress of the project. The theme of the conference is “Let's Act!” and this is what the GREAT project is all about. Continue reading to learn more about the latest and upcoming activities in the project as well as the infrastructure building status.
What's left to be built?
Site negotiations are starting to show results and fast chargers are being installed at a good pace. Several more are expected in the coming weeks. Planning for the C-LNG stations is also progressing.
In May, E.ON opened the first of a total of seven EV Charge Streets in Stockholm. The concept combines a GREAT fast charger and four dual outlet semi fast chargers. E.ON has secured prestigious locations such as top residential street Strandvägen and Slottskajen next to the Royal Palace.
GREAT will be represented the following dates. If you would like to invite GREAT to take part in an event, please contact the coordinating team. Events are continuously updated at www.great-region.org/events
Let’s Act! – The future of alternative fuels
The GREAT Midterm Conference on the 8th of June in Copenhagen will cover the current situation for alternative fuels in the GREAT geography and how we all can contribute to speed up the shift. If you are interested in coming, contact the GREAT team to see if there are seats available.
As last year, GREAT will be arranging seminars at Danish Folkemødet and Swedish Almedalen. Join us to discuss current topics on sustainable transport and alternative fuels. On stage are politicians as well as the private partners in GREAT.
Sustainable transport for smart growth
Time: Thursday, 15 June, 16:30 to 17:30 Place: The Greater Copenhagen tent C19 - Cirkuspladsen
During spring GREAT has launched the project’s new concept– Drive Clean. This event based concept is aimed at promoting alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles towards the general public at locations where GREAT infrastructure is installed. The target is to make more people choose BEV’s and CNG cars (where relevant) and to see at least local short term positive sales as a result of the event.
The Drive Clean Tour has been arranged in Värnamo on 24-25 March, Mölndal on 28-29 April. Spring season finished with the event Drive Clean Rally in Halmstad on 12-13 May.
We are now in the planning stages for fall dates as well as spring 2018. Expect new dates in the coming weeks.
The interim study reports for GREAT Activity 5, Policy Measures and Activity 6, Business models are now available online. You can also find short "Recommendations for policy makers" derived from the reports.
