A co-operation between the Cale Group, world leader within parking solutions, and ChargeStorm, one of the leading companies in Sweden within smart charging poles for electric vehicles, makes getting paid for EV charging at parking places simple.
The number of environmentally conscious consumers is increasing, and with that the sales of electric vehicles. Only in 2016, the cities are expected to double the amount of charging poles available, in order to cater for this increased demand. Many public charging stations are today to be found in connection with parking areas. To be able to meet the new investments, Cale is offering the possibility to getting paid for EV charging at the same time as for parking. Only in Sweden, 8 out of 10 drivers pay for their parking at parking terminals from Cale.
”The co-operation with ChargeStorm is completely in line with our future strategy to offer solutions helping cities being sustainable, connected and simply smarter. An obvious goal in our co-operation is that the customer shan’t have to undertake any extra installation in form of cable pulling or similar between the parking terminal and the charging pole; instead the integration will take place in the ”cloud”, - says Anton Kaya, MD and CEO of the Cale Group.
At the exhibition Intertraffic in Amsterdam, 5-8 of April, Cale will present a completely integrated solution for getting paid for parking at Cale terminals and EV charging at ChargeStorm’s charging poles.
”It has been a true pleasure to develop the pay solution together with the competent engineers at Cale. We look forward to taking the market by storm”, says Patrik Lindergren MD ChargeStorm.
