McDonald’s in the Netherlands will Fuel You & Your Car
McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) is the leading global foodservice retailer with nearly 37,000 locations in over 100 countries. The Corporation operates and franchises McDonald’s restaurants in the US and across the globe with over 90% of its restaurants owned and operated by local, independent businessmen and women.
Starting before the end of the year, McDonald’s customers in the Netherlands will be able to charge their electric cars while getting food to fuel themselves. McDonald’s and Nuon, a subsidiary of Vattenall a European utility company, have created a deal to institute two charging stations at each of the fast food chain’s 168 locations.
Despite the popularity of the electric car in the Netherlands, there is still only a small amount of public quick-charging stations. The electricity for the charging stations will be provided from Dutch wind turbines.
Google has also be joined the wind power trend, with its recently signed deal to buy 190 MW of energy from three Finnish wind power plants. The energy will be used to supply its data center in the Nordic region. Google has purchased nearly 900 MW of renewable capacity across Europe to meet its electricity demand.
