President of the Government announces installation of fast charging stations for electric mobility

The President of the Government of the Azores announced today that the process for the installation of fast charging stations will begin by the end of this year within the electric mobility project that has received "special attention" from the Regional Government.
"One of the projects that the Regional Government has paid special attention to - electric mobility - will see considerable developments by the end of this year, with the beginning of the installation process of fast charging stations," said Vasco Cordeiro.
The President of the Government spoke on the presentation of the installation project for Corvo Photovoltaic Power Plant. This an investment of Grupo EDA is of great relevance for allowing the introduction of renewable energy sources in the island's network, thus contributing to the reduction of dependence on fossil fuels for energy production.
On the second day of the statutory visit to Corvo, Vasco Cordeiro stressed that the production of renewable energy and the new forms for its use are "one of the great challenges that the Azores face as a Region."
This challenge is to ensure, in conjunction with other measures taken at various levels, which this process is not limited to the way energy is produced. It should also focus on how it is used throughout the Region.
Grupo EDA "plays a fundamental role in this process and responds to this challenge of the future of our Region by reinforcing the production of renewable energy," Vasco Cordeiro said, highlighting the path already followed by the Azores in this area.
"The fact is that there are more than two dozen power stations using renewable sources. This system consists of seven wind farms, 12 hydroelectric power plants and two geothermal power plants. Soon, we will have another geothermal plant on Terceira Island," said the President of the Government.
In the regional power system, renewable energies guarantee more than 35% of the total electricity produced in the archipelago. Geothermal power is the primary source, followed by wind and hydropower.
"This figure is important and significant not only for the Region, but also when compared to the target set in the European Union," stressed Vasco Cordeiro.
