THE Valencian Institute of Tourist Technology (Invattur) has added a charging station for electric vehicles at its Benidorm headquarters. It can charge two vehicles simultaneously, providing 100 kilometres of driving within two hours.Installed by Hosbec, the Costa Blanca hoteliers’ association, with collaboration from Iberdrola, which is responsible for the charging point’s upkeep, this will also be available for public use. Francesc Colomer, who heads the Valencian region’s Tourism Board, recently visited Invattur, where he was accompanied by Hosbec president Toni Mayor and Iberdrola’s regional director Joaquin Longares. “This is a small example of the work towards sustainability that we are encouraging in the tourism sector,” Colomer said on being shown the charging station. “If we are capable of multiplying this we shall be in step with the huge global agenda that hopes to check climate change, while maintaining sustainable development goals together with the sustainable transformation of the tourist sector,” he added.
