The future of parking seems to be increasingly linked to electric mobility. The growing demand for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles has led to the need for the development of electric parking solutions.
As technology advances and the demand for electric vehicles continues to grow, we are likely to see an increase in the implementation of electric parking worldwide.
Electric Parking: The Future of Parking
A 100% electric parking is a parking facility equipped with a network of high-power chargers for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. These chargers enable the rapid recharge of the vehicle’s battery, which is particularly useful for drivers needing a quick charge before continuing their journey.
In addition to providing fast charging, a 100% electric parking can also be an ideal location for other activities related to electric mobility, such as the installation of swappable batteries or the implementation of energy management systems that optimize energy consumption within the parking facility.
The adoption of 100% electric parking facilities can contribute to improving air quality in cities by reducing the emission of pollutants from internal combustion engine vehicles. Furthermore, it can contribute to the fight against climate change by promoting the use of renewable energy in charging electric vehicles.
The Solum Solution: Charging Stations
An example of electric parking is the solution developed by Solum: Helio. A charging station designed to provide a solution for users who need to park and simultaneously recharge their personal mobility vehicles. Additionally, Helio has become a 100% sustainable solution thanks to the use of solar pavement, Arena.
Arena is a solar pavement capable of generating solar energy thanks to high-performance photovoltaic cells integrated into the tile itself. This solar ground is designed to be walked on by users, ensuring their safety.
All of this brings greater comfort and convenience for drivers of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, creating a cleaner and more sustainable environment for everyone.
How to find an electric parking space?
