Sedlbauer AG and Parking Energy Ltd join forces to electrify all real estate parking spaces in Germany
Sedlbauer AG, based in Grafenau, Germany, and Parking Energy Ltd, based in Helsinki, Finland have joined forces to develop Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points and cabling system components for the QuickConnector system originally developed by Parking Energy. Electric vehicle market is booming worldwide, and one of the key challenges has been EV charging at parking areas of apartment and office buildings, and other large parking areas such as airports and park & ride areas. Parking Energy EV charging service for real estate fulfils all the requirements, by introducing turn-key, all-inclusive service for property owners, housing corporations and parking operators.
Parking Energy service forms an ecosystem where charging station manufacturers, electrical component manufacturers, electrical contractors, EV charging operators and real estate companies work together to deploy electric vehicle charging to all parking bays. Parking Energy started from ideas used in Finland, where 1.5 million (the majority) of all parking spaces are already equipped with electricity.
With the Parking Energy service, cabling and electricity supply is planned for all parking spaces, making the whole building EV ready. Installation including cable routes, cables and the QuickConnectors can be in one go or staged as suitable projects to suit the business needs at each site. Typically the Parking Energy infrastructure cost is about one tenth of the cost of traditional charge point installation. After deployment, installation of the physical charging points is a simple one minute plug-in task. The benefits include ability to select power level and the technology per site, built-in load management, future-proof multi-vendor solution that includes comprehensive metering and billing options.
The Parking Energy system has already been successfully installed and in full operation at several sites in Finland, and the number of growing fast.
Says Jiri Räsänen, CEO of Parking Energy:
Maximilian Halser, the CEO of Sedlbauer AG notes:
Sedlbauer and Parking Energy are already working on the first projects, including ones to be deployed in EU Horizon 2020 funded “Electric Mobility Without Frontiers” (EMWF) project. One of the first large scale deployments of Parking Energy’s QuickConnector system was at a Finnish insurance company Varma’s headquarters building in Helsinki. Their commercial property director Toni Pekonen points out:
“As electric vehicles become more common, EV charge points will
be needed in places where they spend extended periods of time. This has
also been taken into account in the environmental certification of
buildings, as well as in EU legislation to take effect in 2019
concerning requirements for electric vehicles in properties and new
