Parking Energy launches real-estate vehicle charging solution

Parking Energy electric chargepoint

Parking Energy has launched a disruptive technology for electric vehicle charging in real estate.

The product is based on a cabling system with Parking Energy Quick Connectors that enable chargers to be added in plug-and-play manner.

Parking Energy's solution separates EV chargers from cabling and other electrical infrastructure improvements, which are long-term investments in stable technology.

Its process begins by upgrading the electrical distribution centre if needed, and cabling with the Quick Connectors is then brought to every parking spot.

After this investment, the parking area is ready for the installation of EV chargers of various types fitting the particular needs of the tenants.

The solution can be installed in both new and old properties with indoor and outdoor parking.

It enables a power output of up to 44kW per Quick Connector and will enable all future charging technologies such as inductive charging and vehicle-to-grid charging.

The first system using this technology has been installed in the headquarters of a leading Nordic pension insurance company with full 238 parking spaces ready for EV charging.

The property has multiple tenants, whose charging needs are met by Parking Energy charging service, reducing the need for the property owner to invest time or money into the process.

Jiri Räsänen, CEO of Parking Energy, said: “This is more than just introducing a new charging equipment to the market. This is an open technology platform which any EV charger manufacturer, charging operator or car manufacturer is can utilise from now on.

"It’s like the USB port for electric vehicle chargers, enabling compatibility throughout the industry. This will speed up the adoption of electric vehicles in a global scale.”

    I love the ev technology as much as the next person but there are limits on current technology and electricity distribution. What would happen to the power supply for the office if all 238 potential charging bays were to be used at their full 44kw capacity? I'm sure somebody much cleverer than me will be along shortly that can calculate the current drain and if the lights are going to go very dim that day!!
