The Principality is expanding the network of charging points for electric vehicles as it sets out to gradually replace self-service outlets with electric service stations and several electric terminals to make vehicle charging ever more efficient and accessible to as many people as possible.
Currently, 113 Monaco ON terminals are installed in seven public car parks in the Principality. Three more car parks will be equipped by the end of the year, resulting in 80 new terminals. On the road network there are currently 17 terminals that can each accommodate two vehicles. Twelve new terminals will complete the network by the end of the year, with seven four-wheel and five two-wheel terminals.
By the end of 2021, ecological vehicles will represent 10 percent of the Monegasque vehicle fleet. By offering faster and closer recharging, Monaco ON responds to the growing need for charging for individuals and business fleets: the turnover rates on the terminals bear witness to both their efficiency and their success. With electricity provider SMEG, the state also offers a high quality of service to users, in particular through support and assistance 24/24 and 7/7.
