Park and charge
Much like charging your phone, the majority of electric car charging happens while you're doing something else. Considering thousands of cars are left idle in parking garages each day, they're one of the most important (and lucrative) places for an electric car charging station. In the U.S., 25% of all charging stations are located in public parking lots and garages—by far the highest percentage.
"Electric mobility is developing rapidly - both in demand and supply. The demand for (better) charging infrastructure is bigger than ever. This is why we’ve installed charging facilities for electric vehicles in all of our parking locations at the Schiphol International Airport in Amsterdam."
- Dieme Ketel, Director Parking & Mobility Services, Schiphol Group
Having charging stations at your locations is a terrific plan, but it’s not like you can just snap your fingers and make them magically appear. First, you need to think about the power consumption and the overall demand. Then, you need to find a solution that can help keep your utility costs low while making it simple for users to access the stations.
That’s where we come in. With our Smart Charging solutions like load balancing and peak shaving, you can rest easy knowing your stations will never exceed your grid capacity, regardless of how many charging sessions happen at the same time. That’s why we've installed 100,000+ stations in over 55 countries worldwide.
