The 2015 Update of the National Infrastructure Plan for the recharging of vehicles powered by electricity by the Ministry of Transport Infrastructures is undoubtedly a stimulus for public administrations, local authorities, companies in the sector, hotels and commercial structures and private citizens to take action so that everyone, for their own role, is involved in the process of equipping themselves with an eco-sustainable mobility infrastructure system.
The electric column installed in Lampedusa allows the simultaneous charging of two vehicles, after identifying the user with an electronic card, through two 3A type sockets; it supplies, at a voltage of 220Vac, a maximum current of 16 A; the refueling process, in this first phase, is free of charge for citizens and tourists, the identification cards will be delivered to the owners and managers of these vehicles in agreement with the local administration.
Research and technological development projects – underlines Francesco Monteleone, ENEA researcher – must be increasingly aimed at the sustainable development of the territory with specific objectives that must be translated into concrete actions in order to contribute to the economic and social development of the country; issues such as energy efficiency of networks, optimization of energy demand by end users (public and private buildings, lighting, summer air conditioning, lifting pumps, etc.), eco-sustainable mobility, waste management together to those of water must constitute a priority of execution that goes beyond the simple analysis and modeling of problems. ENEA, through its Departments, holds the potential for intervention of excellence on energy technologies, energy efficiency and sustainability.
The collaboration agreement, signed a few months ago, between ENEA and the “Pelagie Islands” Marine Protected Area is a further opportunity to design and implement infrastructural interventions on energy efficiency and eco-sustainable mobility on the islands of Lampedusa and Linosa.
