Thus Fabio Pressi, president and managing director of A2A E-Mobility, on the sidelines of the inauguration of the first series of City Plug columns installed in Brescia with a design signed by Giugiaro Architettura.
“The CCity Plug columns are a solution for those who don’t have a garage and still want an electric car. To date there is a real difficulty in recharging electric cars in our cities, but not only that: it is also difficult to be able to build wallboxes inside the garage of condominiums and this inevitably leads people to ask themselves doubts and questions about where being able to actually charge the electric car. With City Plug the situation changes: this is a perfect solution for cities, as it is capable of being perfectly integrated into the urban area and distributed in a capillary way”. These are the words of Fabio Pressi, president and managing director of A2A E-Mobility, on the sidelines of the inauguration of the first series of City Plug columns installed in Brescia with a design signed by Giugiaro Architettura.
On what are the objectives for the future in numerical terms, Pressi explains that there is “a plan to install 22,000 charging stations by 2030obviously of various powers. This is the slow solution for us: we proposed it today, it will be installed in Brescia in two other locations, we are also proposing it in Milan and we believe that the other cities will follow”. The innovation that underlies this project, explains Pressi again, “is what we call the charging corridor, since, based on the number of cars, the power is distributed: if there is only one car, the column will charge at 7 kW, if there are several cars, in any case the recharge is distributed in times that are absolutely compatible with those who want to leave the car overnight or for slightly longer stops”.
For A2A, Pressi concludes, “electric charging is part of the transition to more sustainable mobility. Payment systems will now integrate with other payment systems for public transport, car sharing, mobility, micro-mobility and more sustainable mobility. We want to follow in these footsteps, also allowing the columns to be integrated into city mobility solutions”.
