GREAT News, September 2017

Latest updates and installation status from the CEF action GREAT

The 21st and 22nd of September it's again time to gather the EU transport corridor stakeholders for the Connecting Europe Conference in Tallinn. GREAT will of course be represented at the conference.

"We go to Tallinn following a few months of good progress in the project. Fast chargers will continue to be installed at a high rate this fall and the LNG station building permits are under way, although we are delayed. I'm looking forward to meet our EU and industry partners in Tallinn to discuss how we can use the experiences from our project to further upscale the use of alternative fuels and the necessary development of decarbonisation." says Britt Karlsson-Green, GREAT Project Manager.

This fall will also be full of events. Come and visit one of GREAT's Drive Clean events in Sweden to test drive EV's and learn more about the advantages of AFV's from a user/owner perspective. We will be happy to see you at our seminars, all with an overlying purpose to advance the alternative fuel market share.

The new Nissan LEAF is here!

The 6th of September Nissan finally released the long awaited new LEAF. With all new design, 40 kW battery for longer range and self-driving capabilities this is bound to be a big selling EV. GREAT is happy for this addition to the EV market since it is another important step towards AFV's being the new normal when it comes to cars.

GREAT outlook

GREAT follows with great interest the commitment to bio methane made by the food chain Carrefour. The plan is to have 200 vehicles for bio methane by end 2017. These will handle deliveries to 250 stores in Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux and Lille. 9 filling stations with liquid bio methane are now in place. Carrefour's ambitious target of reducing climate emissions by 30% compared to 2010 led to the decision to invest in bio methane.
