EOS, Renault-Nissan Alliance to Develop Zero-Emission Mobility Solutions

Dec 17, 2008 - Datamonitor

Swiss electric utility company Energie Ouest Suisse and the Renault-Nissan Alliance have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop solutions for zero-emission mobility in Switzerland through the promotion of electric vehicles and the establishment of a battery-charging network.

The two companies will study ways of implementing and maintaining a battery-charging network throughout Switzerland. The memorandum of understanding also intends to define the terms and conditions for the supply by the Alliance of electric vehicles to Energie Ouest Suisse (EOS) for use in its fleet.

EOS and the Renault-Nissan Alliance will also create and support educational activities to promote the use of electric vehicles.

Hans Schweickardt, CEO of EOS, said: "For EOS, the introduction of electric vehicles brings a forward-looking response to Switzerland's energy and climate challenge. Replacing 15% of Switzerland's cars by 2020 with electric vehicles would reduce CO2 emissions in the transportation sector by 1.1 million tons per year, or a reduction of around 7%."
