Electric vehicle charging infrastructure around Lake Balaton
Topic of the practice
Encouraging Low Emission Transports
Good Practice Information
Electric vehicle charging infrastructure around Lake Batalon shows a good example of an infrastructural development and promotion of environmentally friendly vehicles in nature protected areas.
This new initiative in Hungary aims at a wider sufficient electric charging network, promoting zero-emission transportation. It covers 1,476.37 Km2 among 10 municipalities affecting directly 2.130.987 inhabitants (location regarding the possible and systematic touristic habits).
Stakeholders: privates: Eon Energy service Ltd., Fullsopron, Eh-SZER Ltd. as energy providers and private hotels and restaurants as locating facilities charging points (11 charging points).
Investment: 72.000€. Cost for users: initially for promoting its use free of charge, on 2013 one charging 2,6€ (16 kWh buttery). It is though e-car market developments in Hungary (hybrid and totally e-cars) will increase up to 59.000 vehicles in 9 years.
Evidence of success
The success of the project means decreasing cost for the car users, because the cost of 100Km with oil-powered vehicle is approx. 9,28 euro, opposite the cost if you use electric car (2,86 euro/ 100Km). Maintenance of an electric car is much cheaper than a car with combustion engine. It is zero CO2 emission transport option.
