New charging station at the monastery of City of Aachen forms as symbol for the use of electric vehicles

On Friday, 17 June Antonio Scala, project officer of CIVITAS DYN@MO, and two reviewers of the EU commission visited Aachen to learn about the progress of the DYN@MO measures in the City of Aachen.

 

As part of the site visit, Aachen's 28th charging station for electromobile cars was opened by Lord Mayor Marcel Philipp and the director of the local energy company STAWAG, Peter Asmuth. The new charging station is situated at the "Klosterplatz" in the heart of the historic old town. The extension of the charging network is part of a car pool project with electric vehicles for the employees of the City of Aachen which started earlier this year. The aim of the project is that all business trips are made with an electric car instead of a private conventional car. In the long run, for city employees it will even not be allowed anymore to use their own cars for business trips and it is expected that this will encourage employees to use public transportation or cycle to work.
