The East E action is part of a global project aiming at the electrification of roads in cohesion countries by providing a continuous open network of fast chargers and thus to create conditions for EV sales. Widespread fast-charging infrastructure including inter-modality locations is a key element for effective and sustainable modal choices.
A study with pilot network deployment is implemented in Slovakia, Croatia and Czech Republic along four core network corridors (Orient East Med, Baltic – Adriatic, Rhine – Danube, Mediterranean), including multimodal points such as airports and train stations allowing collection of data on passenger and logistic services to feed a study for larger roll-out at EU level.
- To decrease the dependency on fossil fuels and to mitigate negative effects of these fuels on environment.
- To accelerate the market to increase a demand for electric vehicles and use of infrastructure.
- To elaborate policy and best practices in infrastructure deployment.
- To develop continuously the consistent charging infrastructure.
The action foresees the deployment of 62 fast-charging supply points along TEN-T corridors as follows:
57 multi-standard fast chargers: 27 in Croatia, 15 in Slovakia, 15 in the Czech Republic and 5 AC high power
chargers at intermodal locations in Slovakia.
