Charging columns in Italy: infrastructures a vacuum to fill

Would you travel without being sure to find a service station at any time and anywhere to fill up with electricity?

Would you travel without being sure to find a service station at any time and anywhere to fill up with electricity?

While in most industrialized and developing countries the use of cars that move thanks to the recharging of their batteries is evident, Italy has yet to take its first steps.

Some data for the month of May:
– Italy , 594 e-cars were also sold
– Germany only of electric VW 442 registrations, 507 Smart road-laying and 507 electric Renault.

The main reason that prevents an average Italian consumer from buying an electric car is undoubtedly the lack of a real capillary charging infrastructure on a par with the fuel distribution network.

The comparison is instinctive: the refueling for a ‘traditional’ car is capillary unlike a new electric car. Can we face tens of thousands of euros for a vehicle that is proposed as a model of technology and then run the real risk of staying on foot?

We have identified some important points for the development of electric mobility:
– Development and competition between multiple networks guaranteed and facilitated
– Reduction of barriers to entry
– Monitoring of tariffs
– Real and comparable alternatives in terms of price and service
– Distinction between Charging Infrastructure Owners and Energy Providers

For now we can say that electric mobility can really take off when the inauguration of a new column, often financed again with public money, will no longer be the reason for the local politician to advertise, but a simple signal of competition between multiple suppliers of services, present on the streets with different colors.

Colossus Group is ready to solve this problem, it is up to the receptive activities to welcome this innovation.
