The partnership program will focus on the establishment in the territory of the prefecture of Antalya of a substructure of charging points for electric vehicles manufactured in Bursa Oyak Renault Automobile Plants since the end of 2011.
The agreement was signed by Prof. Dr. Mustafa Akaydın, Mayor of the Metropolis of Antalya, Bülent Yıldırım, Chairman of Ulaşım A.Ş., Ibrahim Aybar, General Manager of Renault MAIS and Tarik Tunalıoğlu, General Manager of Oyak Renault.
Reinforced by this synergy between Renault and the Antalya Metropolitan Municipality, the parties have decided to start a work to promote electric vehicles which are manufactured in Oyak Renault Automobile Plants in Turkey within the boundaries of Antalya in order to reduce CO2 emissions and the effects of global warming. To this end, a team will be set up until the end of 2012 in order to achieve concrete results regarding the establishment of an infrastructure that will allow the use of electric vehicles in the city.
Thus, the task force will be responsible for making proposals, including:
To increase the projects in Antalya which will enable the widespread use of electric vehicles around the axis of charging points; install and develop a network of charging points for electric vehicles; to develop specific projects related to fleets, public spaces and urban areas; review the various regulations regarding the installation and operation of charging points for electric vehicles.
