Bagnoli (NA), 25 May, 2021 – Twelve charging stations active from today in Bagnoli and via Argine, three by the end of the month in Porticelli,a kick off of a seriesof 180 charging stations in all anm parking lots. This means the inauguration of the first public electric charging hub for cars built in Naples by Be Charge, the company that was commissioned by Anm to install the network. From today those who have an electric car will be able to park it in Bagnoli and put it in charge, giving the sign that Anm wants to contribute to give to the mobility of the city of Naples.
“Charging stations for electric cars are one of the signs of our look to the future, to make it present,” explains Anm’s chief executive Nicola Pascale. In recent months we have committed ourselves with determination to carry out the project that will soon equip the city with 180 charging stations, pushing the Neapolitans to choose electricity as fuel, eliminating their weight on the air quality of their city. The columns are an important piece of a route: in the last two years we have introduced 180 new very low-emission buses, we are finishing testing the new trains for Metro line 1, we are about to activate the new trolleybus towards the hospital area. A work that Anm is carrying out looking at the objectives set by the EU that in the 2020 Green Deal that aims to achieve climate neutrality in Europe by 2050, starting from the reduction of emissions by at least 55% by 2030».
The work on the network of electric columns was carried out by Be Charge which, after Bagnoli and Ponticelli, in the coming months will activate the other charging stations distributed in the other parking lots managed by Anm, including the Brin Parking, those in the hospital area, and those at the Management Center, also depending on the connection times to the electricity network by the competent energy distributor. The installation sites of Anm multi-column and with medium-long stops lend themselves to creating advanced services such as the Vehicle to Grid (V2G) that Be Charge plans to experiment soon, also in collaboration with the university bodies.
“Our development plan – commented Roberto Colicchio, Head of Business Development at Be Charge – is ambitious: we plan to install about 30,000 charging points throughout the country in the next 3-5 years that will deliver 100% energy from renewable sources, for a total investment of more than 150 million euros. We are already well on the way with over 4,500 charging points installed and as many already authorized. In particular, for us southern Italy is very important to allow those who buy an electric vehicle or foreign tourists to be able to travel throughout the national territory. The project that we are inaugurating today here in Naples can serve as an example for other beautiful places that are not yet fully infrastructure. To achieve the necessary capillarity of the network, the collaboration of the municipal administrations that manage the territory is required. In this sense, Anm has been very far-sighted in its choices and we hope that the Municipality of Naples will also soon be able to plan a charging network on municipal soil that will complement what we are installing in the parking spaces in the structure managed by Anm.
We are available to extend the network to recharge also in the road parking lots of the Municipality of Naples and to replicate similar projects also in other municipalities of the Campania region and throughout southern Italy with the administrations that will be able to be proactive in this delicate phase of mobility change. Our industrial role is precisely to invest resources and capital in an even early phase of the market and to support public administrations that want to equip their territories with an efficient and innovative charging network for electric vehicles».
“The green turning point continues – says Marco Gaudini, Councillor for Public Transport and Mobility of Naples – that we strongly wanted in the mobility and transport sector. With the installation of charging stations for electric vehicles in our parking lots in the structure, in fact, we offer an additional sustainable service with a view to an ever-greater environmental impact for our city. The services we present today are in addition to the numerous activities put in place by the Administration in the field of electrical micromobility already started and those in the process of being built such as electric bikesharing. We are also working to provide charging points for electric vehicles in the city as well. The aim is to increasingly promote intermodality and sustainable zero-emission transport.”
