We were delighted to reunite the Polestar 1 and our green hydrogen fuel cell system at Polestar’s European test drive at Villa Cora, Florence.
With our partner Siemens we installed a fuel cell system in the grounds of the fabulous Villa Cora, Florence, to produce renewable energy to charge the Polestar 1. The beautiful venue, with its architectural importance and unrivalled location overlooking the city of Florence, has one thing in common with many hotels around the globe, it doesn’t have the spare electrical network capacity required to power a bank of rapid EV chargers.
If we’re going to avoid catastrophic climate change we must decarbonise. Part of the solution will be to electrify our heating and transportation, whilst switching energy generation away from fossil fuels to renewable sources. The elegant beauty that surrounded us at Villa Cora reminded us that we need magnificent electric vehicles such as the Polestar 1 and we all need to seize the opportunity to enjoy a clean environment by using clean, renewable energy to charge these vehicles.
