The Renault-Nissan Alliance and Vinci Park join forces to promote electric vehicles

VINCI Park is also taking part in a trial on electric mobility (SAVE) conducted by the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Following plans announced by the French government on October 1, 2009 and April 13, 2010 to develop electric vehicles with lithium ion batteries, VINCI Park and Renault are jointly studying the best way to deploy charging infrastructure in the car parks of the VINCI Park network.

VINCI Park and Renault will also develop services linked to the charging and parking of electric cars, in line with customer requirements.

To this end, Renault and VINCI Park will set up working groups to jointly study:
– the sizing of the charging infrastructure
– technical solutions
– charging-related services and packages
– parking solutions tailored to electric vehicles.

At the same time, VINCI Park is taking part in the all-electric mobility trial organized by the Renault-Nissan Alliance in the Seine Aval area outside Paris (SAVE project).

Working with the local authorities, VINCI Park will study the charging infrastructure of car parks located in the area covered by SAVE. As part of this project, VINCI Park will have access to the electric vehicles built by the Renault-Nissan Alliance and will be able to run life-sized trials on charging points and their use.

Founded in 2001 by VINCI, world No. 1 in concessions, construction and associated services, VINCI Park manages the Group’s activities in the sector of parking and related services. VINCI Park is European leader in parking management, ranking among the foremost global players in its sector.

VINCI Park has been serving local authorities as a one-stop service provider for almost fifty years. The company designs, builds, finances and manages public on- and off-street pay parking services. Its expertise also covers the management of car parks for private operators. As a company committed to sustainable development, VINCI Park has always sought to innovate, by bringing cities services tailored to their environmental needs.

The goal of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, founded in 1999, is to become the world’s leader in zero-emission mobility. The Alliance has already entered more than 80 partnerships worldwide with governments, city authorities, organizations and other major stakeholders in order to prepare the markets and infrastructures for the arrival and the adoption of electric vehicles with lithium ion batteries and their mass-commercialization by 2012.
