In light of Fisker's solid-state battery breakthrough and claims of a one minute charge time, will this electric vehicle technology development kick-start mass BEV uptake? 


Elektromotive active in Copenhagen

Elektromotive is to play a pivotal role in the introduction of an electric vehicle (EV) recharging infrastructure in Denmark, with the installation of the first Elektrobay roadside charging stations scheduled for completion in time for this month’s COP15 global climate change conference in Copenhagen.


Elektromotive has appointed a Danish roll-out partner, CleanCharge Solutions, to carry out the installations, and to lead the ongoing promotion of the Elektrobay recharging technology to legislators and businesses in Denmark.


The first Elektrobays in Denmark will be located in the capital, Copenhagen, and in the city of Odense. These units will be identical to those already installed at more than 200 points in London and around the UK. Further Elektrobays are planned to be installed across Denmark during 2010.


The government officials from 192 countries attending COP15 are widely expected to support fresh collaboration on the uptake of EVs and the deployment of new recharging infrastructures. These initiatives will form part of efforts to define binding new targets for reducing global emissions by 2020.


During the two week climate change conference more than 15,000 delegates will have the opportunity to trial three Elektrobay units that will be on display at the Danish Foreign Ministry Showcase located inside the Bella Centre convention venue.


“This is a crucial moment for the Danish market and the global shift towards zero-emissions motoring,” commented Managing Director of Elektromotive, Calvey Taylor-Haw. “Not only is Copenhagen poised to be the hub for climate-change decision making, the country is also taking steps to become a leading market for EV use. Working with CleanCharge as our Danish roll-out partner means Elektromotive will be at the forefront of the country’s ambitious EV project from the very outset.”


Nils Dullum, CEO of CleanCharge said, “The installation of the first Elektrobay charging stations within an intelligent network represents a new era for the future of motoring in Denmark, and will be crucial to the country’s uptake of electric vehicles. An efficient and fully-functioning EV charging infrastructure will show consumers that there is a way to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and lower our CO2 emissions, which will benefit future generations.”
