Developing a more sustainable mobility by connecting EV drivers with charging stations
SDG’s of application
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.
Offers from Place to Plug
Place to Plug offers the possibility of checking charging points’ status, and booking and enabling them from mobile app without needing any specific card, which will ensure that user will be able to charge and will not find any other car occupying his place. On the other hand, we also offer our community sockets to allow charging everywhere even if there are no public charging points. At this moment EV drivers need to plan each long trip they do by looking for charging points in a map, calling to ensure that the charging point is working, and asking for specific cards everywhere they go (which means that they end up with tens of different cards). With Place to Plug all they need to do is to check in the app that the charging point is working properly and enjoy the trip since they know that they will be able to activate the charging point from their smartphone. Institutions (cities and operators) will find in Place to Plug a tool to increase their charging points’ network visibility and to manage charging sessions’ payment. Businesses (hotels, restaurants…) will also gain visibility by offering the charging service as an added value to their current services.
