The electric vehicle joins the investigation in Doñana through the EBD-CSIC

June 2019

Transport vehicles are an important source of pollution and initiatives have recently multiplied to favor the transition towards greater use of electric vehicles. The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), through the Doñana Biological Station (EBD), has joined efforts to implement the use of electric vehicles and reduce the pollution generated by their vehicles. Within the project "Improvement of Energy Efficiency and the e-labs of the ICTS-Doñana Biological Reserve", the first six plug-in hybrid vehicles have been incorporated for use in the research work carried out in Doñana.

This project, co-financed with FEDER Funds (European Regional Development Fund) of the Plurirregional Operational Program of Spain and the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, seeks to reduce the pollution generated by research activities in the park and improve the infrastructure for research in the Biological Reserve of Doñana.
