The city of Zagreb has opened a solar-powered charging station for electric vehicles – the first of its kind in Croatia.
National energy provider HEP installed the charging station in the Croatian capital as part of its ELEN emobility project.
The station features two sheltered charging points with solar panels, with ultra-fast filling chargers with a power of 50 KW and 43 KW DC.
This means that an electric car can charge fully in between 15-30 minutes. Two vehicles can also charge at the same time.
The Mayor of Dubrovnik has signed an agreement that will see two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations installed in the city.
Croatian national power company HEP is providing the charging stations as part of its ELEN emobility project.
Dubrovnik Mayor Andro Vlahušić and HEP CEO Perica Jukic signed the agreement earlier this month.
The city of Sisak in Croatia will receive 11 new buses by the end of August thanks to a loan by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

The signing was also attended by Sisak's mayor, Kristina Ikić Baniček.
The total loan from the EBRD amounts to €4.5 million, of which €2.3 million will be used for the procurement of the buses.
The coastal city of Šibenik in Croatia earlier this month hosted a workshop to support the development of its urban mobility master plan.
The meeting brought together several members of the transport system of the city of Šibenik, including representatives from the city parking administration, the Port Authority, and the city's economy trade and development department.
The master plan is part of the city's UrbEco project, which was created to tackle the problem of outdated and inadequate urban transport in the city and its surroundings.
The city of Slavonski Brod in eastern Croatia has opened its first charging station for electric vehicles (EVs).
The ELEN charging station is the seventeenth so far installed by Croatian national power company HEP in the country.
Two vehicles are able to charge at the station simultaneously, with charging times taking from 1 to 4 hours, depending on the vehicle battery.
In July 2014 the EU-funded Pro-E-Bike project helped Croatia’s national postal service Hrvatska pošta (Croatian Post) to test electric bikes as a way for it to deliver letters and small packages using cleaner and more energy-efficient vehicles.
