In this regard, they have explained that efforts are being made in coordination with the Balearic Institute of Energy (IBE), which holds the authority in this field, to enhance efficiency and address the identified issues.
“We have come across incidents that have remained unresolved for 300 days,” criticised the Councillor of the Department of Environment, Biosphere Reserve, and Local Cooperation, Simón Gornés.
Furthermore, he added that “Menorca must take steps in favor of energy efficiency and the environment, and for this reason, it is crucial that the existing infrastructure operates optimally.”
He also highlighted that the efficiency of the electric charging points “must be substantially improved,” and that there are “few charging points, and the ones available are frequently non-operational.”
“This is an unacceptable situation that needs to be addressed, as it poses a hindrance to the path of sustainable mobility transition,” he concluded.
Likewise, he emphasized that, as per the Menorca 2030 strategy, 750 public charging points need to be installed on the island.
“Currently, Menorca only has 38, which is an exceedingly low number,” he detailed.
Finally, he underscored that the IBE is in contact with the company managing the charging points to resolve the situation in Menorca, as reported by COPE.
