Better Place has a press release about the installation of charge points at the national convention centre in Canberra - National Convention Centre pioneers a sustainability benchmark.
The National Convention Centre, Canberra, is the first conference centre in Australia to pioneer the installation of electric car charge spots.
In partnership with leading electric car charge network Better Place, the National Convention Centre has installed two permanent charge spots in its car park for electric car drivers to use. Drivers can plug into the charge spot and top-up their battery whilst enjoying the conference centre’s various facilities and event spaces.
Four electric cars can charge at once using the spots at the National Convention Centre, which is managed by IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group).
“The National Convention Centre is committed to helping our visitors make a positive contribution to environmental sustainability,” National Convention Centre manager, Cindy Young said.
“Reducing carbon emissions is not just a global issue; it’s a local issue too. Installing charge spots for electric car drivers supports our commitment to sustainability, and enables us to offer a leading-edge service for visitors that can also help to reduce pollution and emission levels in Canberra,” Ms Young said.
