New EV charging point at the wind and solar project developer’s headquarters in Bremen
Bremen, 02.08.2018: Collaboration between the energy provider swb, carsharing company cambio Bremen and Energiekontor AG expands e-mobility services in Bremen Technology Park on the doorstep of the University of Bremen. In cooperation with Bremen-based energy supplier swb, an EV charging point with two charging stations and a capacity of 22 kW at 32 A and 400 V was installed and put into operation at the Group headquarters in Mary-Somerville-Str. 5.
One of the two charging stations is available to all electric vehicles as a public utility. The access is provided to ensure that visitors with electric vehicles who have two-hour-long appointments in the area can charge their vehicles on site. They can now rest assured that they will be able to continue on their journey powered by renewable energy. The energy usage is charged using standard RFID cards directly with swb or via a roaming plan with affiliated cooperation partners.
The second charging station extends the car sharing service in the area surrounding the university. The car-sharing company cambio, which has already successfully established itself in Bremen, also provides a sustainable and individualized service offering to companies in the area in cooperation with Energiekontor AG.
Due to the fact that some employees of Energiekontor AG have to commute between the locations Bremen, Bremerhaven and Hagen im Bremischen, managers thought of how to make these necessary journeys more sustainable. An agreement was rapidly reached with cambio to introduce an alternative to conventional offerings.
The involved companies would also like to thank the city of Bremen for its constructive cooperation in changing the parking space and supporting a sustainable neighbourhood-based mobility concept.
As a pioneer in the wind industry, Energiekontor has stood for sustainable power generation from renewable sources of energy for almost 30 years. The company has set itself the goal of supporting the vision of a 100 percent completely renewable energy supply by introducing the first wind and solar farms with a levelized cost of electricity that is lower than that of coal and nuclear power plants. As such, Energiekontor is currently building the first ever wind farm without state subsidies in England.
About Energiekontor AG:
For the last 25 years, Energiekontor has stood for a sound approach to business and a wealth of experience in wind power. Formed in Bremerhaven in 1990, the company was one of the pioneers in the industry and is now one of the leading German project developers. Its core business covers the planning, construction and operational management of wind farms in Germany and abroad, and was expanded to include solar power in 2010. Energiekontor also currently owns and operates 34 wind farms and one solar park with total rated power of around 270 megawatts. Now, Energiekontor AG intends to extend its pioneering role to commercial aspects and to realise wind farms and solar parks at market prices without state subsidies in all target markets as quickly as possible.
In addition to its headquarters in Bremen, Energiekontor also maintains offices in Bremerhaven, Hagen im Bremischen, Aachen, Dortmund, Bernau (near Berlin) and Potsdam. The company also has branch offices in England (Leeds), Scotland (Glasgow), Portugal (Lisbon), the Netherlands (Nijmegen), the US (Austin/Texas) and France (Toulouse). The formation of additional branch offices in France and the US is currently underway.
Our track record speaks for itself: We have realised 118 wind farms with total rated power of around 940 megawatts and three solar parks with total rated power of about 30 megawatts. This corresponds to an investment volume of more than EUR 1.6 billion.
