Germany Aims for Electric Vehicle Technology Leadership
Congestion on the A40 autobahn between the cities of Mülheim, Essen and Dortmund is so endemic that the motorway was long ago dubbed “Germany’s longest parking lot”.
However, in 2009, RWE, the Essen-based power generator, began operating a pilot scheme on the road, which aims to catapult the region into the transport fast lane.
In conjunction with project partners, including Renault and the University of Aachen, the utility group set up a string of charging stations for electric vehicles along the busy route and provided more than 70 electric vehicles for the car pools of commercial users.
