People are literally crowding into the cities. With growing urbanisation levels and the consistent compaction of “urban habitats”, large-scale amounts of CO2 are being emitted on a daily basis. A standard, medium-sized vehicle with a diesel engine struggling daily through downtown traffic for about an hour, emits approximately 400 grams of CO2.
Still, the share of electric vehicles compared to vehicles with an internal combustion engine remains very low, though admittedly many countries have set clear targets on increasing the number of electric cars circulating on their roads by year 2020. In as far as Germany is concerned, the Federal Government looks forward to seeing an increase to one million electric vehicles circulating by year 2020 and even up to six million by year 2030. By year 2025 other countries such as Norway for instance, are planning to ban the sale of new cars fitted with a petrol or diesel powered engine in favour of electrically powered cars.
Charging stations for all types of parking systems
WÖHR has picked up on the e-Mobility shift for some time now and offers charging stations for mechanical, semiautomatic and fully automatic parking systems, aimed at their environmentally-aware customers. Owing to the multiple
out there on the market, alongside the relative hardware, customers also need to be provided with the necessary consulting services. What type of power connection is necessary? What can the average charging time be? Is it necessary to take the power consumption into account? Is the power mains outlet capacity sufficient enough to supply both the household and vehicles with enough power?
During the BAU 2017 WÖHR will be happy to provide you with an answer to all these questions, and more.
