The new GREAT film, fast charger and LNG station build status as well as upcoming events.

GREAT News, December 2017

Latest updates and installation status from the CEF Action GREAT

2018 is soon upon us and GREAT will be continuing to deliver on the milestones set up in the project. More and more the GREAT project is delivering to help realise the green corridor envisioned by the initiating organisation STRING.

"We have an intense year ahead with fast charger installations, final reports on policy measures and business models, the next DTU evaluation and of course a continued focus on communication and dissemination. Hopefully we will also see real progress on the LBG fuelling stations with the new Volvo and Scania trucks released." says Britt Karlsson-Green, GREAT Project Manager.

Q1 and Q2 2018 major events are starting to fall into place. Take a look at the schedule to find an event to attend and help to speed up the shift to alternative fuels.

You can always find info about GREAT and latest news at great-region.org

This is why we build fast charger infrastructure

During 2017 GREAT has met EV-owners and drivers along the corridor. Why they have chosen to drive an EV and their thoughts on charging infrastructure are shown in this film. Feel free to use it in your channels!

What's left to be built?

This fall has seen several new fast chargers on the Danish highways as well as some new locations in Sweden. As always you can find the exact locations on the GREAT web site.

The first building permit, for the LNG station in Högbytorp is expected Q1 2018.

Who buys and drives the EV?

GREAT arranged a seminar during the eCar Expo in Gothenburg. The seminar presented three recent studies on the EV owner with the purpose to shine light on the target audience for EV sales.

Simultaneously the seminar was live illustrated to create a summarising illustration of “the Mind of the EV owner”.
