Electric charging poles for electric cars are arriving to the island of Capri in Italy. The Italian island of Capri has started an initiative to promote electric mobility on the island. Ensto will provide the electric vehicle charging solutions for the project.

With this initiative the municipal administration pursues to combat the increase in vehicular traffic that, in recent years, has significantly raised the levels of air pollution and noise throughout the island. Capri is known as a popular holiday destination, and the increasing tourism has resulted in a stedy increase of population and traffic.

Initiative taking off immediately

The project "development of electric mobility Capri-Anacapri and Ensto" was approved by the City Council in September 2011. It gave permission to set up necessary infrastructure to encourage and enable the use of electric cars.

Building of the charging infrastructure will begin shortly. Electric vehicle charging stations will be installed at various points of the island.

A unique but welcome sight on the streets of the Blue Island

For the signing ceremony Ensto "imported" to the island its first electric car ever. It was SAM (for Sustainable Automotive Mobility) - a modern three-wheeler that fitted perfectly on the very narrow streets of Capri. The electric motor also showed its perfect capacity on the very hilly island.

The Mayor of Anacapri, Franco Cerrotta, and the Councillor for tourism, Massimo Coppola, while launching the initiative, agreed that this "is a starting point for re-launching the territory of the island of Capri, the ecological island in the Mediterranean, for the development of green economy on the isola azzurra [blue island]".
