Light & Charge Installations. Realized projects for the public and commercial charging and lighting infrastructure.
As part of the “Drive Clean Seattle” initiative, eluminocity will install more than 100 charging stations at 20 different locations in Seattle. One of them is located at the Pacific Science Center and ready to use. The eluminocity EmCell includes the Prism Gateway Kiosk, several Crystal EV Chargers and a DC charger.
Through the installation of the eluminocity EmCell in the Georgetown neighborhood, the previous lack of charging infrastructure has now been remedied. The parking lot is now ready to welcome EV drivers and guarantees them a pleasant stay.
The e-Mobility Hub at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle integrates several Chrystal EV Chargers connected by a Prism Gateway Kiosk and an additional DC Charger to offer the perfect charging portfolio for EV drivers.
Leaders for Clean Air is a Salt Lake City-based non-profit that helps businesses plan, design and implement large-scale charger projects. They are partnered with Rocky Mountain Power and UCAIR. If you are interested in EV charging at your Utah workplace or multi-family housing development, please contact them through the form submission at www.leadersforcleanair.org.
There are two publicly accessible integral systems of eluminocity Light & Charge located directly next to the remarkable double cone of the BMW Welt in Munich. A further installation of the charging and lighting combination can be found at the BMWi exhibition area in the BMW Welt. Furthermore, the BMW Group operates Light & Charge systems close to its Research and Innovation Center (FIZ) as well as at the location in Garching, a town in the northern suburban area of Munich.
Several Light & Charge systems comprising the charging station and the LED street lighting go on annual tour with the FIA Formula E Championship. Formula E is a class of auto racing that uses only electric-powered cars. The series races on street circuits spread across five continents. Light & Charge is exhibited on all races as an overall solution for the sustainable integration of modern charging and lighting concepts into the existing infrastructures.
This Light & Charge System is a pilot project at the Public Works’ Alhambra Headquarters Facility, Los Angeles County, California. The installation is specially designed for the American market and equipped with the SAE J1772 Type 1 Standard and an integrated charging cable.
The first Light & Charge overall system in the United States has been introduced on August 2016. This pilot is equipped with a standardized type 1 plug and socket device, which are prescribed by the legislators for the American market. The charger is publicly accessible and located on the premises of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois.
The first Swiss charging station of eluminocity was installed at the location Färbiplatz in canton Zurich in cooperation with the electricity provider of Zurich (EKZ) and BMW Switzerland. The two charging points have a charging performance of 3.7 kw and are publicly accessible. With the intelligent “Light & Charge” system a consisting street light was transformed into a charging station for EVs of every type.
The first eluminocity installations in the Netherlands show the advantages of our Light & Charge solution combining modern LED street lighting and space-saving charger for electric vehicles. The three Light & Charge lampposts – with 22 kW power output in each case – are located in the City of Amersfoort, Netherlands, merely about an hour’s drive away from Amsterdam. Since the new lampposts have an integrated LED light, they can assure additional safety at dusk or in darkness near the charging station.
In collaboration with the City of Munich and the Stadtwerke München (Munich City Utilities), eluminocity installed several Light & Charge pilots in the city center. The charging stations, assembled in summer 2016, have been integrated into the existing lighting infrastructure without taking up additional space. They can be found, among others, close to the Englischer Garten, the Main Station and in residential neighborhoods. All chargers are supplied with green electricity.
Part of the newest urban planning project of the City of Eindhoven is a pilot installation of the Light & Charge system comprising the LED-Module and the charging station. This urbanistic development project is called Strijp-S and located on the former industrial site of Philips. As part of a EU framework program for sustainable urban concepts Strijp-S is transformed into a district with environmentally friendly and intelligent energy and mobility concepts. The eluminocity solution makes a major contribution in this direction.
One of our first projects combining our infrastructures for lighting and connectivity – the eluminocity LED-Module and the Connect-Module – has been installed by eluminocity in an urban district of the City of Salzburg, Austria. The eluminocity systems illuminate the Josef-Brandstätter Street while connecting the whole street. The project consists of two-modular LED lights and radar sensors. A further expansion is scheduled to begin in 2017.
