Promotion of E-Vehicles and their infrastructure in the ESEA region (steer)
ESEA has through BEAST managed to raise the awareness, knowledge and positive attitude towards e-vehicles and charging infrastructure by establishing contacts and networking between municipalities and various charging infrastructure companies, electric car dealers and interest groups.
A big E-vehicle event “E Road East” has been organized along with a road show and testing periods of electric cars in municipality use. Support for municipalities to seek loans for the expansion of the charging infrastructure has been given and so far three municipalities have installed 9 semi fast chargers in total and two municipalities are driving 5 e-vehicles.
ESEA is now leading the work to develop a regional strategy for a fossil free vehicle fleet, to be reached 2025.
