The Compagnie Nationale du Rhône (CNR), which has its headquarters in Lyon, is the second biggest producer of electricity in France and the premier producer of exclusively renewable energy. The company was chosen by BMW France to be suppliers of green energy recharge services for owners of its new BMW i electric vehicles.

CNR’s offer, “Move in Pure”, ensures the supply of hydro-generated river energy certified 100% renewable. Since 2010 CNR has been pursuing the development of its offer with key players in the electric mobility sector. A partnership was confirmed with DBT-CEV, manufacturer of recharge terminals for electric vehicles, and the company is involved in the Bluely and SunMoov’ electric vehicle car-share initiatives in Lyon.

The Compagnie Nationale du Rhône is therefore playing a major role in contributing to the dynamism and development of the Lyon region in terms of smart mobility.
