Italian lake goes all electric

Lake Como has been hailed as Europe's first 'electric destination'.

Inventor of the electrical battery and power pioneer Alessandro Volta was born and died on the banks of Lake Como, so it is only fitting that the popular tourist destination has gone all-electric, with an extensive network of electric vehicle charging points.

Italy’s network of historic gardens (GGI) has managed to set up 15 electric car charging points around the lake’s 170km perimeter, using Tesla’s ‘Destination Charging’ technology.

This project has the backing of 27 local stakeholders, including hoteliers and restaurant owners, who have pledged to implement green practices.

India wants every car to be electric by 2030

India is hoping to become the first big world power where all cars on its roads are electric, as part of its efforts to combat severe atmospheric pollution. 1.8 million deaths are caused by it every year on the subcontinent. EURACTIV’s partner Italia Oggi reports.

The network is boosted by further charging points for electric bicycles and electric boats. GGI hopes the new infrastructure will help reduce air and noise pollution, as well as protect native animal and plant species.
