In Norway’s capital Oslo, a new “Charging Enabled Parking Structure” has opened with support from the municipality, charging system provider, and the property owner.
In a city where the EV market is massive, there was a high demand for the EV charging stations. Thus, this new collaboration produced the “Charging Enabled Parking Structure”.
The new facility contains 100 Level 2 charging stations and 2 Level 3 DC Fast Charging stations,. Normally, these charging stations can only provide 3.7 kW; yet, with enough support from the circuits, it increases to 22 kW each.
This public vehicle-to-grid station has the most active functionality among all. The installation will use a 50 kWh energy storage against a massive spike in plugging at the same time. Normally, peak-demand electricity usage has higher rates than normal electricity usage. Thus, installing an on-grid energy generator on-site will be beneficial for the facility to charge lower rates to customers.
The facility is a great example that will lead the EV transport to the future green parking lots.
