There is no doubt about it; the trend towards electric vehicles is here to stay. Motorists who purchase such a vehicle also need a charging station. But there lies the rub. Belgium has an atypical grid, as in some places, there is a three-phase power supply 3 x 230V without neutral. Charging stations cannot recharge electric vehicles in such occurrences.
The Sylvania brand of the Feilo-Sylvania Group – one of the world's biggest producers of artificial light sources – has launched Relumina an alternative to mercury vapour lamps. Ever since April 2015, high pressure mercury vapour lamps are banned in the European market.
