INTERNATIONAL Z.E. ROLLOUT 1: Turning the “sunlight” on ZOE, and Kangoo Z.E. in Reunion

Renault’s electric vehicles are available in 18 countries and continue to be in markets around the world. The process will now be accompanied by a saga article. The first on the island of Reunion, where Twizy and Kangoo Z.E. arrived in Renault dealerships.

conditions in the new market led to the development of panel-powered charging stations, an solution that means electric vehicles here can run and in zero-emission mode.

GBH, Renault’s importer and in Reunion, started selling ZOE and Kangoo Z.E. on November 11, through long-term, five-year contracts priced, respectively, at €599 and €499 a month, VAT

2014 objective: a charging every 15 kilometers

Reunion is suited to the introduction of electric owing to its compact size, the link-up of charging stations, and the average daily driving of just 24 kilometers.

Because charging stations were to the launch of the three models, worked upstream on the introduction of the Implementing a comprehensive charging is easier here than in France as the stations are concentrated on the Today, 19 charging stations are up and with the first users up” their vehicles free of

The network is to be expanded to 27 stations by the end of with an objective of one station 15 kilometers in 2014.

Zero-emission stations

In parallel with charging network, Renault has forces with Sunzil to private charging stations under the name of “Autozil”. stations are equipped with canopies and roofs equipped photovoltaic panels and an electricity system enabling the daily of electric vehicles, so motorists can their ZOE, Twizy or Z.E. with “green” independently of the network operated by the EDF

The development of the Autozil charging stations was by a local constraint, namely part of Reunion’s electricity is by CO2-emitting thermal power which diminish the environmental of electric vehicles. As an island, has very few connections with the electricity network. Also, the supply-and-demand balance is more here than on the continent.

If all motorists were to charge cars in the evening, during demand period, the fragility of the network could be exacerbated, to power outages.

The situation required an “autonomous” infrastructure independent of the local network. And Reunion has harnessed all its in photovoltaic technology to meet need.

Reunion’s photovoltaic

With an average 52 peak of photovoltaic electricity per inhabitant with the French average of 1.6 watts), Reunion has considerable resources and top-level expertise in panels. The photovoltaic sector on the comprises some 70 companies for a 500 megawatts.

VERT tests the vehicle ecosystem in Reunion

The project (short for “Véhicule pour une Réunion Technologique”, or vehicles for a technological Reunion”), by seven public and private (Renault, Sunzil, Schneider EDF, Bernard Hayot and Total), was launched in 2010 to the use of electric vehicles charged CO2-virtuous solar-powered stations. The supported by ADEME*, originated as of a government initiative to proactively electric mobility in Reunion, through the “Réussir Innovation” in innovation”) program in the Grenelle plan for Reunion.

VERT has laid the groundwork for the launch of electric vehicles in and comprehensively trialled vehicle using photovoltaic generators not to the electricity network.

The arrival of electric vehicles in the island of is a first step in French departments. In 2014, they’ll be on in French Guyana and French Indies.
