The summit, which took place on 9 and 10 February in Lyon, was devoted to European health policy. The meeting was held at the Palais des Congrès on the occasion of the French Presidency of the European Union.
One of the requirements was that the leaders travel by electric car from the station to the airport. To facilitate on-site charging, two diesel generators were hired to charge the approximately 50 vehicles, the local newspaper reported. Le Proges.
When confronted with this, the local government was given the excuse that there were only four charging points. According to the Belgian site gocar.be that’s a bad argument. The site discovered that there are more than two hundred charging stations in Lyon, often with two charging stations each, plus several fast chargers.
