Kolasin will soon get the first public charging station for electric cars, as announced from the Manager's Office of this Municipality. This will enable the city to "support electric mobility and the expansion of electric vehicles in the region". As explained, the charging station is enabled through the project "Low carbon tourism development in Montenegro" implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in co-operation with the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism and with the financial support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

Kolasin Municipality Manager Veljo Jovanovic said that investing in the development of a charging station network would enable energy efficient transport as a whole.

"Due to the great dissatisfaction of foreign tourists due to the lack of public e-stations in the state, the Kolasin Municipality has taken certain measures to assist users of such vehicles through the provision of funds for necessary permits and preparatory works. The planned location for the station is in the very center of the city, on an already existing one-way street parking, stretching from the Sheraton hotel to the hotel “Bianca”, said Jovanovic.

He announced that during the first year the power supply will be free of charge because the Municipality of Kolasin will take care of the payment, according to the postpaid principle, on a monthly basis.

"This power station will be primarily to charge the electric vehicles of tourists, which will improve the tourist offer of the city. On the websites of the Kolasin Municipality and local tourist organizations, information on the e-station will be published, while the owners of accommodation facilities will put the info on their Booking accounts," explains Jovanovic.

He announced that the Management Department plans to apply for several smaller e-engine vehicles in the following period, by looking at the example of Tivat. These vehicles, he says, would serve for the tourist tours of the city.
