Renault continues the development of the smart islands
The Renault Group continues the development of the "smart islands" started in February in Portugal, and presents the FlexMob'ïle program, thanks to which the island's energy independence can be fostered by leveraging three pillars: electric vehicles in car sharing, storage of solar energy and smart charging.
As early as 2019 residents and visitors of the island will be able to use a fleet of electric vehicles consisting of ZOE and Kangoo Z.E. models, in the form of self-service rental, powered by a network of charging stations installed in the main points of interest on the island.
Solar panels installed on the roof of the school, for example, will heat and light classes during the week, but on the weekends or during school holidays they will provide energy to recharge vehicles.
