“More than half of charging stations to become renewable power capable”

Their project Intercharge forms a network of various operators’ charging stations. The green power used at the chargers will be produced by a Swiss hydropower station, according to the report. Most charging stations today use green power only as part of the power mix in the grid, which also contains conventional sources.
