Mayor Vaňková: 50 EV charging stations in Brno by the end of summer


Mayor of Brno Markéta Vaňková announced that the residents of this Czech city will have 50 charging stations for electric vehicles at their disposal by the end of this summer.

Mayor Vaňková stated on social media: ‘’26 charging stations for electric vehicles have already been built by Teplárny Brno. By the end of the summer there will be 5️0, and this is just the beginning.’’

The mayor of the city with a significant student population also noted that the city’s partnership with Brno University of Technology, one of the Czech Republic’s major research and teaching institutions, contributed to the increase in local EV charging infrastructure.

‘’The development of electromobility will also be accelerated by the deepening of the city’s cooperation with the Brno University of Technology in this area on the basis of a memorandum that I signed with Rector Ladislav Janíček. Students will also help with innovative problem solving, which makes me happy,’’ Mayor Vaňková further stated.

Residents who would not otherwise consider an electric car due to a lack of charging stations will benefit from the dense network of charging stations in residential areas, the mayor of the Czech city explained.

‘’Brno’s approach is unique in the country, but I am convinced that it is the right one. Because a smart city is a city where technology is used to make people live better,’’ Mayor of Brno Markéta Vaňková stated.

Electric vehicles have been found to be environmentally friendly in multiple studies, as they emit fewer greenhouse gases and pollutants into the air. Electric vehicles have the ability to reduce pollutants caused by transportation while also reducing global warming.

They have therefore often been promoted as the ideal vehicle for European cities since they are non-polluting, low-cost to operate, and ecologically sound. (photo credit: storyset/Freepik)
