EXAMPLES OF PROJECT OUTPUTS

Location Vestec

Three public fast-charging ABB stations were ceremonially opened on 2 October 2017 as part of the Vestec charging site near Prague.

Location Litoměřice

The operation of the public fast-charging ABB station in Litoměřice began on 17 December 2018, with the opening attended by parliamentary representative Karel Krejza.

Location Praha-Průmyslová

The operation of two public fast-charging stations at Průmyslová street in Prague began on 11 October 2018; the opening event was attended by representatives of McDonalds CZ, ABB Czech Republic and ČEZ.

PR and communication events, regulatory recommendations
Electro-mobility forum 2018

At the end of April 2018, a full-day conference dedicated to the development of electro-mobility in the Czech Republic, products and services for corporate customers as well as individuals, and technological as well as legislative trends in the Czech Republic and abroad, took place in Prague-Karlín.

Loučeň 2017 & Loučeň 2018

Thanks to resources from the communication part of the CEF budget, two traditional conferences on clean mobility were made possible from 9-10 March 2017 and 12-13 April 2018 in the Central Bohemian town of Loučná. There, the most prominent domestic experts on alternative propulsion and electro-mobility introduced their visions and discussed future possibilities and development scenarios.

Location Žebrák

During the opening of two fast-charging stations at Žebrák near the D5 motorway in July 2017, Czech TV aired a report on the construction and technical aspects of the project as well as the progress in the construction of the motorway itself.
